Porsche announced winter driving courses
Driving a powerful car is a challenge in extreme weather conditions, and now that Europe is about to embark on a pretty scary winter season, Porsche has decided to train its customers for the rough months ahead with driving courses specifically designed for winter driving. Customers can register for these diverse winter driving courses at the Porsche Sport Driving School and the Porsche Travel Club, from January to March 2011.
The course includes three sequential training levels – precision, performance, and master - where participants will learn how to better master their vehicles by driving in icy, yet controlled conditions. Performance and master level training courses will take place on an ice race course in Finland. This course will allow customers to learn how to handle their Porsche in icy and snowy conditions. Correct steering, braking, and reaction techniques, among other skills will be learned to ensure that Porsche’s customers will ride safe this winter season.
