We were invited to test drive different Porsche’s in the Sirbb circuit last week and boy was it an experience. The first time i’ve really driven a car on track, and it was great!
I arrived at the circuit at 3.30 PM, I must admit i was impressed, its a great circuit! Looks amazing.
We were greeted by the lovely view of parked Porches, all colors and sizes.
This was the GREAT team from Porsche, all of them are professional race drivers, that were there to teach us some basics and show us what the cars were capable of. As I told our coach Paul, if I ever wanted to buy a porsche it would because I would know great people like the drivers we met worked on making these cars better for us! Amazing team!
Here we were given seating instructions :
Here the instructor was explaining to us the concept behind the mid-engine boxter and how it would have a different driving feel to it. I loved this driving experience the car felt very steady and was quite powerful for the smallest engine. Check out the following video :
Here we tried the braking power and stability of the Porsche Cayenne. If I would’ve done the same exercise with my FJ cruiser my car would’ve ended up behind the barriers in the back.
Here the test drivers (Paul and Paul) were telling us about the two exercises we were about to do next. Tesing the Launch control on the Panemra and the Slalom using the Carrera S.
This was one of the Panemera’s that was on display (certified pre-owened) it had a great interior. I always thought that Panemera’s were large, but when you drive one you get to feel its quite compact for their large size.
Here, the car i fell in love with ! Amazing car, it was the Carrera S, rear wheel drive, great power, the sports exhaust package just made the car sound amazing, and the drifting out of the rear tires was also amazing and gave me quite an adrenaline rush, it was too cold and it was the last exercise, i only wish we had more time to do it again!
At the end of the event was a taxi ride with the professional racing drivers from the Porsche Team, it was amazing ! Overall the event was very well organized, the location was superb and we all loved the experience!
