Advanced Driver Training June 2021
The Bend Motorsport Park June 2021.
We had a fantastic day on Tuesday June 8 2021, at the Bend Motorsport Park with a great team of Porsche Enthusiasts who took on the challenge of Level 1 and Open Track in Porsche’s Advanced Driver Training program.
For our Level 1 participants it was all about taking to the driver’s seat. The day was designed to help our Porsche drivers react better in both day-to-day situations and emergencies.
With different driving exercises offering differing variables for both car and driver, the expert team of Porsche certified Porsche Track Experience Instructors were able to simulate critical situations for which our guests may have no hands-on experience.
Our Porsche Track Experience Instructors took participants through a series of slalom, cornering and braking exercises, as well as steering techniques, progressively moving around the racetrack to help build experience and knowledge, culminating in full laps of the track. The fleet saw a wide range of Porsche models participate all the way from Macans and Cayennes to the 911 and of course the new fully-electric Taycan.
For our drivers with previous track experience it was all about the Open Track, with the key objective to hone driving skills by maximising track time. The race track provided a safe environment without the normal restrictions of road conditions allowing for participants to explore their Porsche’s dynamic potential under the guidance of our skilled instructors.
The day proved that Porsche really is about performance providing an opportunity for drivers to truly appreciate what a Porsche is engineered to do.
With professional training from the certified Porsche Track Experience Instructor Team, led by Bathurst winners Tomas Mezera and Luke Youlden, the group quickly enhanced their driving skills throughout the day.
Thank you to everyone involved who helped make this day special, from our Porsche Track Experience Instructors but most importantly to our very own Porsche drivers who took on the challenge in style.
