Porsche Winter Driving School at Camp4 and Camp4S

by Sales Team on September 4, 2012

Porsche, 911, Camp4, Camp4S, Canada

Twenty Porsches, two handling courses, two driving circuits, one large skid pad, and a whole lot of snow will all come together this coming January and February as Porsche enthusiasts throughout the world make their way to Porsche’s Camp4 Canada winter driving academy.

Beginning January 31 and ending February 8, Porsche will offer three back-to-back Camp4 classes. Experienced customers can opt to attend Camp4S from February 8-12.

Like a jaunt to the ski resort, Camp4 provides the thrill and adrenaline of high-speed winter driving with the comforts and luxury of a high-end resort. Located almost an hour from Montreal, Estérel Suites, Spa & Lake in Québec will provide shelter for the four-day Camp4 driving school that contains two full driving days. While at Camp4 you will learn how to drive in treacherous winter driving conditions and will specifically be taught how to effectively change direction, brake, and perform a hill-start on low traction snow and ice surfaces.

If Camp4 is the winter driving equivalents of green and blue ski runs, than Camp4S provides drivers with black runs. With the addition of another driving day, Camp4S gives participants the chance to tackle an even more challenging driving course. Unfortunately for those new to Camp4, it is a perquisite to have had prior success at a Precision-level Porsche Sport Driving School Course, such as Camp4, to participate at Camp4S. There’s always next year.

Whether you’re looking for the thrill of driving a Porsche in the snow, the beauty of Québec in winter, or a thrilling family vacation that also teaches you and your loved ones how to safely control a vehicle in snow and ice, Camp4 and Camp4S will satisfy your driving desires as you push the latest Porsche models to their limits within the safe confines of a designated winter driving school.

Porsche WInter Driving Experience Dates Set in Canada

by Sales Team on November 10, 2010

On a winter holiday, people usually take to the trails on two skis. But why not try four wheels for a change? In a Porsche, of course.

What about a trip stretching the limits of experience – in Canada? At temperatures below freezing on snow tracks exclusively prepared for Porsche? And, of course, in a Porsche. Camp4 Canada will take place for the first time in February and March 2011. A 3-day winter driving event that will help you forget about the daily grind.

The facility has a number of exciting sections: two circuits, a large skid pad and two challenging handling courses that demand your full attention. Naturally, maximum pleasure behind the wheel is guaranteed at all times.

The course teaches you the basics of driving in treacherous conditions, preparing you specifically for the winter situations. In the theory lessons, you will learn the basics of driving safety and driving dynamics. The Porsche instructors work on special techniques with you for driving safely on snow and ice. In addition, you practice developing your so-called ‘muscle memory’. As in dangerous situations there isn’t generally enough time to think about the right reaction, you have to be able to depend on your intuition. Turning these reactions into reflexes means: practice, practice and yet more practice.

You learn effective braking, changing direction and hill starts on low traction surfaces. Naturally, as a standard part of the course, the instructors also make an individual assessment of your driving style.

To be held at the track in Mecaglisse, Québec, accomodations will be at Fairmont Tremblant Resort, nestled in the heart of a European-style village at the foot of Mont Tremblant. This world-class resort boasts a dazzling array of lakes and trails, gourmet restaurants, charming bistros, exclusive boutiques, nightclubs and the Casino de Mont-Tremblant.

2011 dates will be:

  • Wave 1: February 20 to 23, 2011
  • Wave 2: February 23 to 26, 2011
  • Wave 3: February 27 to March 2, 2011
  • Wave 4: March 2 to March 5, 2011
