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.

You might wonder where I'm coming up with "inimitable." It's one of those $5 words I came across recently. It means "incapable of being imitated" and I couldn't think of a better word to describe South Centre Fine Cars here in Calgary. 2010 is shaping up to be the big year here at South Centre for a number of reasons.

On the back end, we have websites devoted each to South Centre Porsche and to South Centre Volkswagen. Both websites are reachable through our main South Centre Fine Cars page. I have to hand it to Autofusion, who built our sites. The information is accessible and the look is very fresh! Not only do we have Facebook pages for both South Centre Porsche and South Centre Volkswagen but you can now follow us on Twitter. Our South Centre team and marketing partners have aided us in branding ourselves at a new level and, by doing so, creating a unique voice to answer to the needs of the Calgary area Porsche and Volkswagen customer.

Now, on the front end of things, we've got some amazing specials to offer our clients. South Centre Porsche is offering a Canadian cash currency credit of up to C$7,500 on all 2010 Porsche models. South Centre Volkswagen is hosting the Volkswagen Customer Loyalty Program with 1% off financing and 0.5% off the lease rate if you currently own a 2003 or newer Volkswagen.

Both South Centre Porsche and South Centre Volkswagen offer the online capability to order parts and to schedule a service appointment. Beyond our physical location here on Macleod Trail in Calgary, our online presence comes pretty close in surefire accessibility and convenience. You even get to see our team's smiling faces although we would rather see you face to face. Either way, it's how we maintain our strong sense of community with our customers.

I could wax on about my home away from home (no kidding) but then this couldn't qualify as a blog. More like a tome. But back to that very important word inimitable. There's no getting around the fact that we at South Centre Fine Cars have continued to offer impeccable customer service with ongoing excellent deals…at least I like to think so.

One more thing: all of Calgary sends a congratulatory wave (with cowboy hats in hand) to Vancouver, our sister out west. We were the fortunate city chosen to host the first Winter Olympics in Canada in 1988. Twenty-two years later, Vancouver received the honor and has made all of Canada proud. We hope you enjoyed the days of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games!
