***THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED***

The opportunity to drive some of the latest Porsche models - 911, Cayman, Boxster, Cayenne, Macan, Panamera or GT cars at our PCI event at the Porsche Experience Centre Silverstone on Saturday, 11th of May 2019


This is an experience that is unmatched anywhere else. Take the opportunity to explore the performance of the very latest Porsche cars on track with a top Porsche driving instructor on board to help you to hone your driving skills both on track and for when you drive your own car on the road and to help you to unwrap the super performance levels that the latest Porsches can achieve. Become a safer, faster driver.


Feedback from Porsche Club Ireland’s last visits to Silverstone have been more than positive so book immediately for the limited spaces available as these are sure to be snapped up quickly.

 

The instructors will cover fast road, track driving, coping with unusual surfaces on the kick plate, ice hill, low friction surfaces, handling circuit etc. If you wish to try a Macan or a Cayenne then you may try the off road course.
Whether you choose to drive flat out or in a more normal manner (the choice is yours) you will end the day having built skills and confidence and have become a better driver.

The cars are supplied by Porsche.

 

An additional bonus this year is the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup which takes place at Silverstone on the same weekend (May 11th and 12th). This series has teams running all of the top marques.
Qualifying will be visible from the roof of the Porsche experience building on Saturday and you pay for admission at the main gate for Sundays race. It provides a wonderful opportunity to see the top endurance sportscars in action.
