Potomac Porsche, the Potomac Region of the Porsche Club of America, will be offering their Driver Education at Pitt Race in May. This DE is an opportunity to improve driving skills by learning how to drive your car at an above average speed on a closed road course.
DE differs from racing is several important ways. DE provides drivers with a learning environment where the goal is to improve your individual driving skills in a safe and fun way. The order in which drivers start or finish a DE session is irrelevant. Racing provides drivers with a competitive environment where the goal is to beat the other drivers across the finish line.
The goals in DE are 1) to be safe, 2) to have fun, and 3) to learn about driving your Porsche smoothly and consistently. And you will learn. Threshold braking, cornering techniques, “the line”, “heel and toe” and vehicle dynamics are among the topics taught on the track and in classroom sessions by fellow Porsche owners and expert drivers. We are a social club, and new participants are welcome, we also are not Porsche exclusive.
