    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    Great, that's marketing, isn't it ? Send out a glossy brochure, tease all those who have stored away their cars for the winter (like I have...with a nice indoor cover...hmm, love it) with potential dates to be presented in MARCH. I know, this is, what they always do, but I hate that. And, the worst thing is the letter which ends with "Yours sincerly, the Porsche Sport Driving School team" - I usually get those letters from my bank. As you may have guessed already, the brochure I received has already found its way into the recycling process ...

    But, be positive !!! So, if and when, the schedule in March is available, I would like to do the training in SPA. Unfortunatey, I reckon that PSDS will again dedicate IMOLA and (new) LEMANS to their "Supersport" clients (GTx...and equivalent) only, so that will be a "no-go" for my "little" Carrera.

    But, yes, it would be great to meet up again...Smiley

     


    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    LOL! indecision That was my reaction last year. This year I promised myself to be more positive. It is January 3rd and I still have not reverted to cynicism smiley

    On my shortlist are:

    • Nürburgring
    • Spa
    • Le Mans

     

    And, yes, it will be great

    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    I think a few of these circuits aren't so much new - rather it's the first time they've been mentioned in the German prospectus.. e.g. I think Le Mans was available to PSDS France, along with Magny Cours.  Imola was on last year's PSDS Italy, along with Mugello..  I wonder if they're being offered by PSDS Germany now.  Hope so.

    Having said that, I'd definitely like to do Imola, probably Spa, Bilster Berg.  Then there's the question of the Nordschleife and this years's Scuderia Hanseat prices angel

    BTW, is that a picture of my car on the first and last page? :-)

    If one can afford the car on the first page, the cost of a course is irrelevant Smiley

    I need my Nordschleife fix for 2014, but I am pretty flexible if it is with Scuderia, PSDS, SportAuto, etc. Scuderia wins on the overall experience, the others on the driving.

    I meant the Boxster, not the GT3..  Inside the cover.

    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    There are so many driving-schools out there which do the same, probably even in better quality for half the price. Even though I had booked those things for myself, too before. 

    I always had the feeling those events had more people in the room which dont own an own Porsche, than real Porsche owners.

    I thought that is your old car by now Smiley Yes, that could be your Boxster. From Spa? But it looks a bit too high to be yours.

    Agree. The beginner courses from PSDS tend to be a complete mix, from your new GT3 owner to grandma who never sat her foot in a Porsche before. The more advanced courses are usually attended by Porsche enthusiasts who bring their own car.

    I think the quality of the PSDS courses is relatively speaking high. Organisation, programme, instructors, etc. All top notch. For a premium price. Like a Porsche Smiley

    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    Imola could be tempting . And as said, no ' beginner's course ' . Only the advanced PSDS are worth it .

    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    Last year, PSDS offered IMOLA has a "Supersport" event (October) only, which meant GTx, 2, 3 and equivalent Turbos etc. and the price was - pause - very challenging... I still do not have a GT3 badge on my car and for that money, there were a lot of other opportunities to choose from...let's wait and see, what comes up in March...


    Re: Porsche Sport Driving School 2014

    Just put a "GT3" badge on the rear. I am sure no one will notice with your aerokit and go-fast-stripes indecision
