Test your driving skills with Porsche
Whenever anyone says the word Porsche you think luxury, you think expensive, sometimes you even think unattainable. Many people may dream of one day winning the lottery and splurging on a beautiful 911 Carrera; it's sad to say that for most, this dream does not come true.

But what would you say if I told you that you can still experience Porsche without having to own one?

I would like to introduce you to some of the Porsche Driving Experiences. Yes they're still on the expensive side but this is a 'once-in-a-lifetime' experience and I can guarantee that if you indulge in one of these as a gift for a friend or for yourself you will be talking about it for the rest of your life.

There are 5 levels of the Porsche Sports Driving School ranging from level 1 –beginner to level 5 – racecar driver.

I myself was lucky enough to experience Level 1 at the Porsche Sports Driving School in QLD – the only resident Porsche driving facility in the world – and it was amazing. I honestly will be talking about it until the day I die.

Current Carrera Cup drivers take you around 3 different exercises during the full day where you learn correct cornering and braking maneuvers, how to correct over steering and under steering and generally have fun whilst in control.

You visit a wet track, a skid pan and the small race track where you get to drive almost the entire model range from Boxster, Cayman, 911, Panamera, Cayenne up to 997 Turbo. You get to experience the Cayenne on the 4WD track and you even get a hot lap in a GT3!

Porsche Winter Experience

Have you ever wanted to drift a brand new Porsche 911 on ice? This is an amazing (if slightly expensive) experience for anyone who likes to take their driving to the extreme. You'll have to fork out a fair bit of money for this one BUT it has been on my to-do list since I first heard about it and I WILL one day save up and reward myself.

Camp4S has two locations, one in Finland and one in Canada. Over 5 days you learn cornering, braking, over steering, under steering all on the snow and ice and all in brand new Porsche Boxster, 911, Cayenne and Panameras. In the evenings you have fun with special activities Porsche organise like racing around on skidoos or a mock winter Olympics.

Ice-Force is the second option and is Finland only. This 5 day course is like Camp4S but on steroids! In Ice-Force you and the Porsche are pushed to the extreme and you must have done previous driver training to participate. Almost everyone who has attended Ice-Force go back and do it at least another 2 – 3 times.
