  • Track Location:
    Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP)
    Bowmanville, Ontario

    Located about 90 minutes East of downtown Toronto, this historic circuit is easily accessible from either direction with regional access to highways 401 and 407 (toll).

    Porsche Track Experience utilizes two tracks at CTMP:
    Warm-Up, Precision and Performance (Day 1) levels will take place on the Driver Development Track (DDT). Please use Gate 3 for site access and park near the building.
    Performance (Day 2) and Master level will take place on the Grand Prix Track (GP). Please use the Main Entrance for site access and follow the interior road up to the event centre.

    Address:
    Canadian Tire Motorsport Park: 3233 Concession Road #10 Bowmanville, ON L1C 3K6
    Program Level: Warm-Up
    Track Location: CTMP DDT
    Half-day course for curious participants.

    A Porsche is a precision instrument that reacts to every movement you make—steering, braking, accelerating—and puts it into action exactly.

    Warm-up provides an introduction to sport driving and basic concepts aimed at developing your vehicle handling skills. You will receive coaching on the varying dynamics of the vehicle and how they apply to everyday driving. Understanding handling combined with controlled speed provides for a comfortable and smooth driving experience. Practice will consist of learning how to confidently initiate evasive actions and experience how slight differences in speed will affect the intensity of load changes. This simulation replicates the perfect driving conditions in which the car threatens to oversteer: a thrilling experience that you will be back for more.

    Warm-up training is the ideal basis for Precision training.

    The syllabus features an introduction to basic principles. The program also features a guided module where drivers can complete full laps of the circuit.

    One-day course for first-time participants.

    Your Porsche is like a precision instrument. It reacts to every steering movement you make and puts it into action exactly. If you consider it the other way around, this means that the more accurately you steer, the more control you will have and the safer your driving will be. And that is exactly what is practiced on this course. Precision training is the ideal basis for Performance training.

    Training focuses on how to handle the car and basic driving safety. At the same time, attention is paid to the potential dangers of everyday road traffic. Particularly important factors here are learning to estimate speed and being able to react quickly. You will practice taking evasive action and experience the effect that even slight differences in speed can have on the intensity of load changes, gradually simulating driving conditions in which the car threatens to oversteer.

    The syllabus features an extensive and well-founded teaching of basic principles—with individual commentation of the learning successes in sections. The program also features a guided module where drivers can complete full laps of the circuit. There’s plenty of time for practicing accurate steering, skillful braking, and careful acceleration.

    Two-day course for intermediate drivers

    This level concentrates on further improving your vehicle control. Participants should possess certain basic knowledge, such as how to find the most suitable seat position, develop optimum vision control, and respond correctly when the vehicle threatens to understeer/oversteer. Then we increase the pace—and your safety at the wheel.

    In addition to a theory session geared towards performance driving and advanced exercises on driver safety, the first day includes a chance to familiarize yourself with the respective sequence of bends and find the optimum line. Intensive sections aim at further improving your command of the car, lap after lap. Accurate and effective braking when entering a corner and avoiding unnecessary steering inputs are primarily a question of practice. One of the main on-road training modules is ‘lapping’—the opportunity to finely hone your skills over the entire circuit.

    Porsche Track Experience instructors monitor your driving throughout and assess your progress at the end. However, here too, the emphasis is on improving your ability rather than driving at high speeds.

    Two day (Master) or Three day (Master R) course for advanced drivers.

    At Porsche, constant further development applies to both car and driver. So, after several driver training courses with Porsche Track Experience, what’s the next level? Master. On this course you are supported by our team of Porsche Certified Instructors will accompany you through the whole program. All of the Porsche instructors are experienced in racing.

    You are already an accomplished driver, so we don’t need to cover the basics. Instead, we can focus on showing you how to drive more independently and quickly find your way around the track without the aid of cones and instructors. Naturally, this also includes identifying and following the racing line. You’ll also discover how this can be developed further, still.

    Training is conducted in small groups. You’ll also have plenty of time out on the track to put what you’ve learned into practice and continue to improve your skills—you’ll even receive one-on-one guidance on some laps of the circuit.

    The format of the day will cater more towards a casual atmosphere with lapping, coaching and social elements.

    Circuit Mont-Tremblant is an historic Grand Prix circuit located in the heart of the Laurentian mountains. This challenging track was once called the "Little Nurburgring" by Michael Schumacher and "...second only to Monaco in difficulty" by Jackie Stewart. With a 15-corner 4.2km circuit, Circuit Mont-Tremblant was once the home of the Canadian Grand Prix and continues in motorsport tradition to this day. Located just minutes away from the Mont-Tremblant resort area, there are plenty of local restaurants, artisans and hotels to enjoy.
