    My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    I went to the first porsche driving courses in my life, last week 26th of October!!!!...

    Suddenly we went really late at we only had the pleasure to do 3laps in the circuit with a 987 base boxster, and drive in wet surface to see how the psm works=powerslides in wet surface, I think that was the best of the day!!!.....I test-drove a 987boxsterS tiptronic S and a 997carrera S Cabriolet manual tranny, the carrera was by far more fun in the wet surface, it was the first time I really powerslide in wet surface, just followed monitor instructions, and I was really amazed how I did!!!

    We also drived 3laps in the circuit with a base 987 like I said, but this time I was in the passenger seat, and my dad driving, it was our first time driving in a circuit, and this baby really sound nice at high revs, really porsche sound, it really performed well....

    We had some porsche presents, like a hat and a portable cd's compartiment, with a t-shirt...

    There where lots of 996 turbo's, 997's all the range, including the Carrera 4S cabriolet, which from my point of view, it looked exactly the same as a base 997 or 997S, lots of cayennes, even two of cayenne turbo's went out at track, really nice to see them to the limit, lots of boxster's too, and last but not least a very special car (to the attention of BC997J ), an amazing 996GT3RS in blue...I only heard the car once when it was in the track, suddenly I was testing the boxster S when I heard it, it has a very different sound in comparison with the rest.....and well I had the pleasure and the luck to meet a porsche mechanic of our dealer, that suddenly started the RS for me, and did some high revved accelerations, guys there was a momment I was shocked, and a bit scared because I was too close to the exhaust, now I can say that I've heard an RS up to 8.200rpms, I will upload the video in megaupload after posting the pics, its only 2mb and believe its worth to watch it!!!

    Enjoy the pics as I did that day

    great powerslides in the wet, it was an amazing feeling

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    Thanks Alex.... My first track days with P was in May, I also had a wonderfull time, specialy that I was able to drive 7 or 8 different Porsches!!
    Looking forward to your vid

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    The best part of the day, the "arrrr sssss", amazing car, the mechanic said me this car was very dangerous, it is too fast, and for the daily driving it is not a good idea at all, he said that just getting in the car and going out was just a pain, so imagine every day , but well I will buy one just without thinking it twice, it is amazing, the fiber rear wing is also amazing, everything a very special car

    BC997J enjoy them

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    I will upload the video of the RS when I finish the pics, believe its the best part, even better than the pics, but suddenly its only like a 7second video!!

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    the wet surface, and the 987S I tested

    It was a very nice feeling, controlling the car to your taste

    Suddenly I don't have any pics of my powerslides, suddenly my dad was too busy laughing and amazed by how I did, to be serious, we where in that test sector, like 10 driving students, all in their 40's or even 50's, me and another guy where the only ones who really powerslide and put both cars to the real limit, all the rest including my dad where may be a bit scared and didn't put the car not even to half of its limit in that test....My dad was laughing each time I passed him, and giving me thumbs up, I have to say he was really scared of me testing both cars, cause this was my fist time in my life!!

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    last but not least, imagine the porsche ladies, they where really nice and gaved them a 5 (the best mark) in the client treatment at the end of the day....you imagine why right???'

    there you have the proof!!!!

    Guys it was an amazing day, probably one of the best days, and we went there really really late, they started in the morning and we went there in the afternoon

    We are going for sure to the next porsche courses in Jarama, for sure!!!

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)


    The RS video, really nice revving, and of course amazing sound!!!!!!

    Enjoy it!!

    btw; that voice is me saying in spanish "goo" 996gt3rs being revved by a mechanic

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    Awesome, Alex- glad you had such a great time!

    The RS is bad a$$!


    Regarding the ladies, the one on the 1st page looks way hot! Hope she's your girl! No offense intended.

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    Thanks for sharing. We went for our first Porsche driving course last month in Leipzig and are already saving up for the next one (2006). It's just too much fun.

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madrid)

    What was the Jarama track like, Alex?
    Is it in good condition, with plenty of space for mistakes?

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madr

    Looks like is was a lot of fun!

    Re: My first porsche driving courses in Jarama circuit (Madr
