    Check this:
    http://www.porsche.com/uk/motorsportandevents/travelclub/drivertraining/camp4andcamp4s/

    What I would recommend is for you to go to your dealer. He will sign you up. It gets full very quickly.

    Re: Camp4 2006

    That looks brilliant fun!

    Would you be kind enough to post a high res picture 1 too ?

    cheers!

    Re: Camp4 2006

    THAT COST an unbelievable 3,200 Euro !!!! And that's the price per person. without the flight.

    Go with your family and you'll be spending 1/4 of the price of a boxster. No wonder porsche is a profitable company.


    Thanks for the pics

    Trust me, this is the last place you want to go with your family. Rovaniemi, Arctic Circle, avg. Temp: -20 Celsius but last week was -40, and absolutely nothing to do if you are not driving

    I went with a friend of mine, left both our girlfriends home and had an absolue blast that was worth every penny.

    Here t is, however it will not be as good as the previous one because it was taken with a different camera.

    Re: Camp4 2006

    I guess pic 1 was a different one, here it is:

    Re: Camp4 2006

    Great pictures Senra, looks and sounds like you had a great time

    Were there any accidents or mishaps during the trip?

    Re: Camp4 2006

    I assume they all had winter tires, yet it looks like some have 18 and others have 19 inch wheels . . .

    Can you comment on the different wheel sizes (including width) and how that might have affected performance in the snow?

    Re: Camp4 2006

    Great photos!!

    funny right? no winter tires, no spikes, 19" normal width . The only one that had winter tires with spikes was actulally Rauno Altonen, who was a professional rally driver several times champion and was the only one who did not need them . However the last day we did a hot lap with him in the car (he was driving) and man I was so glad he had spikes and knew what he was doing I have a video of the drive with him. I will try to post later and also include some other videos.

    Nothing major, actually one thing I am really in awe is how much abuse these babies can take. Bad mistakes could lead the car to go off-road in which case we would just use the walkie we had in the car to alert the monitor to stop all other cars in the track and if we could not get the car out, then call the Cayenne. Yes, there were a few Porsche mechanics around the different tracks rescuing people...

    It was interesting when you would see a Cayenne rescuing another Cayenne!!!
    it did happened...

    At the end I also saw a couple of damaged bumpers but that's all. However we were told to watch out for the jumping trees....

    Here's a pic:

    Re: Camp4 2006

    One too many there son ..

    throt..

    Re: Camp4 2006

    here is the pic without the "camp4" on the side of the cars for anyone who wants it...

    Re: Camp4 2006

    Good work that man ! Thanks.

    Here it is in b&w, for no particular reason.

    Re: Camp4 2006

    Great photos, I was there, with my wife, Jan 8th-12th, and it was only -14 Celius or so.

    This is a great program and worth every penny. The hardest part was driving to the hotel and back (potential for jumping trees) through the icy forest roads.

    The whole point of the course is to learn to steer the car with the rear wheels through judicious use of the the accelerator and brakes.

    I will return next year..there is no better way to spend money!
