    Porsche Driving Experience Day and Training

    C4S March build is on order, and just to keep the anticipation levels at max Porsche UK sent me my invitation to their driving experience day.

    I presume most if not all owners have been on it as it's a freebie (!) included in the cost of the car, so any feed back on how good or bad it is would be appreciated.
    Is it worth Pounds550 for my wife to come along too?

    Whilst I'm on the subject of driver training does anybody have experience of good courses etc. I'm quite keen to make sure I'm
    (1) safe on the road
    (2) getting the most from my car

    Zooming around a track on a Kwak 750, one knee on the floor, is one thing, making sure I don't get overtaken by my own engine is another.

    Re: Porsche Driving Experience Day and Training

    I was offered a similar day in a Cayenne including some off road driving whilst waiting for my 997 - I asked and my wife came along for free. It was good fun but wouldn't have paid Pounds550 for approx 2 hours fun. Check the Porsche GB owners club website for a good description of what it entails, there is a recent-ish thread on there.

    If you want the ultimate in on road driver training contact John Lyons, he advertises in the back of Evo etc or failing that Bernard Newbury, both of which I can highly recommend from personal experiance.

    MBW I did my driving day last month at millbrook. It was an amazing day and worth every penny!! It was 4 - 5 hours in length and you can decide what you want to learn. I asked specifically to learn how the car will handle at its limit as its my first 911 and I'm still getting used to the light front end. Overall 9.5/10

    Re: Porsche Driving Experience Day and Training

    That's interesting, seems to be longer and more involved than the Cayenne day - I have my day booked up for mid-March, it looks like they have switched to giving the day to buyers before they get the car, not after for me...

    Not had my invite yet!

    I assumed you only got it after taking delivery of the car?

    Thanks Guys!

    Boxsterboy : Exactly the position I'm in, first 911, and coming from a Quattro equipped Audi, renowned for understeering, it might be a big difference.

    Not sure why I've got my invite so early, lucky maybe.
    In fact the whole Porsche buying experience has gone very smoothly.
    Initially put in a pre-order for a Cayman S, switched to a C2S after driving both back to back. Then switched again to a C4S and managed to get a March build slot, I only switched to the C4S in January! (Judging from some posts I've avoided a big wait)

    Phone your OPC and hassle them. If you don't get any joy then I have a direct number you can call where a very polite lady will sort you out - numbers at home so PM me if you need it and I will dig it over the weekend.
