We began the day with a brief classroom session discussing vehicle dynamics, breaking techniques and the driving line. Then it was time for the hands-on exercises including the Skid Pad, Performance Driving Techniques, Autocross and track driving sessions.


The course is taught by Porsche Certified instructors, who have experience in all aspects of the sport – they were all extremely professional coaches and gave direction flawlessly. The cars we piloted: 911 Carrera S, Boxster S, Panamera GTS, Cayman S


To wrap up the day, we took a tour through the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum, known for housing Mr. George Barber’s personal vintage motorcycle/car collection, which is said to be the largest of it’s kind in North America and possibly the world. A HUGE thank you to Pirelli Tire North America for hosting us.
