written in auto He

The experience really begins with a departure from Mexico to the Canadian city of Montreal, where one of the coolest driving tests ever will take place, the Porsche Ice Experience. In this event, which takes place on snow and ice, various challenges are faced which are really challenges of dexterity rather than speed or strength.

fun and efficient driving

The event was first born in Rovaniemi, Finland in 1996, later moved to other countries and since 2011 it has been held in Quebec, Canada. The Porsche Ice Experience was formerly called “Camp4” and is the largest and most prestigious winter driving event in the world, although we know there are other courses from other brands, it doesn’t compare to this exceptional Porsche event.

Designed for beginners and experts

This course is designed for beginners and experts, where different driving techniques are learned for sport driving on snow and ice With the Porsche 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S models, we already have the famous electric Porsche Taycan There was also an opportunity to run.

The experience lasts for two days, starting with a welcome dinner, followed by a breakfast and a theory course the next day, with an explanation of what to do and what not to do. Afterwards, it’s a few minutes’ bus ride to the Mekaglis Circuit, a training track divided into several sections and which in the case of the Porsche Ice Experience only operates in winter.

Modules with different handling techniques

The course is divided into several modules which, as I mentioned, is more about skill than speed, rather the opposite, it is a speed control event and rather, knowing the capabilities of the vehicle and applying them at the precise moment to be implemented in We had the skidpad, slalom, moose test and full Scandinavian flick circuit to figure out when to use all-wheel drive with the Porsche Carrera 4S and Porsche Carrera S.

In these driving courses or modules, they are controlled in various ways, for example, in some cases, it is requested by the radio, which is working at all times with the instructions of the instructors, that the electronic assistance be disconnected. so that the vehicle can perform the indicated maneuvers and with it unbalance the car, block the wheels and brakes and later take control again, something that is great fun because it is really fun for adults There is an amusement park of super sports cars.

Something important we have to mention is that the tires are Nokian special for snow and they have a special design so that they have better grip with 1.5mm spikes, which are called “nails” but are actually made of erasers Are.

In all modules, the most important thing is to control the track, although sometimes due to lack of skill and slippery ground, you can fall into the snow, which in the end turns out to be nothing, as the speed reaches them. . are few and the most that can happen is a little snow falling on the vehicle.

So in this Porsche Ice Experience, we learned the techniques and how to perfect them, understeer and oversteer, how to correct every time and when to return in the right direction. We have to remember that this can happen to us in real life and the best thing to do is to know what to do.

The Porsche Ice Experience, an exciting event that I really recommend to the general public and of course to lovers of the Porsche brand.
