You can spend a lifetime learning to master your Porsche on a racetrack, but doing it on snow and ice is an entirely different kind of challenge. We know because we did it last year.
Porsche is once again offering drivers a chance to fine-tune their skills on the frozen track at Mecaglisse, a snow- and ice-packed driving circuit about an hour north of Montreal in Quebec, Canada. The school, known as Camp4 Canada, once again employs a team of Porsche factory drivers and a fleet of Porsche sports cars, including the all-new 2012 911, to teach small groups of owners and enthusiasts the finer points of driving fast with little traction.
Exercises include a slalom course, two road courses and a skid pad session. The cars are equipped with snow tires bolstered by studs. The three-day experience is based at the Esterel Suites Spa and Lake resort in Esterel, and includes lodging and meals.
Camp4 Canada will run from January 31 to February 12, 2012. Additional details can be found at www.porsche.ca/camp4.
