Default Porsche Track Experience

Hi all,

Brand new to Rennlist!
I'm thinking seriously of signing up for the 2 day Porsche Track Experience at Birmingham, AL for this summer. For those of you who've done it; Impressions? Is it worthwhile? I have autocrossed a lot but never taken a car to the track. Sorry if there is already a thread on this subject. - Joe

Just scroll down and find "School Comparison" by Crazyfast. Good info and writeup.

Welcome aboard Joe. I haven't done the Porsche Track Experience, but getting your car on a track is a fun and rewarding experience.
Good luck and be safe.

It's not worthwhile. Don't do it because the instruction is good, the cars are great and you'll end up not wanting to leave. LOL

On a serious note, if you've never been on track, the 2-day is the way to go.

In the 2 day you get car control plus auto cross plus track driving plus off road. (Unless itís changed).
Had a blast. I didnít really want to do offroad in Cayenne and I was blown away by the capability of the vehicle and some of the terrain we experienced. FAR more aggressive than I ever expected.

Well worth it. You get to drive several different Porscheís.

I was also shocked at how capable the Panamera was on track
and we got to launch the Turbo a few times.
Just make sure your head is against headrest when you launch.
Its eye watering.

You can provably ask for manual and/or PDK. I drove both on the track. They used caymans for auto cross and all were PDK.
