About the Junior Porsche Driving Experience Stage 1
Young drivers can now learn the essential skills needed to drive a car from the driver?s seat of the brilliant Porsche Cayman.
Young drivers at least 4ft 10 inches (1.47m) tall and over 12 years old can attend our Junior Porsche Driving Experince to learn the essential skills needed to drive a car.
They will also drive on parts of Thruxton Circuit including the famous club chicane and start finish straight which has seen many famous drivers race, including Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Kimi Raikkonen.
Initially drivers will have expert tuition with an Advance Driving Instructor (ADI) in a Skoda Fabia or radid in the paddock areas, first as a passenger and then taking full control to develop their core skills.
Then the first of two 15 minute sessions in the brilliant Porsche Cayman. The first session will further develop the skills already learnt in the Skoda, plus driving a section of Thruxton Circuit: Woodham Hill to Campbell Corner, sometimes through the pitlane, sometimes through the start/finish straight and back again.
The second session will allow young drivers to travel faster and perfect the racing line.
The above is what we aim to achieve (and we think we will with most pupils) but everyone is different, with some learning quicker than others, our ADI will tailor each session to the individual pupil
The section of track used for the Junior Porsche Driving Experience is from Woodham Hill, through the Club Chicane, past the start/finish straight and to the first corner of the complex (Campbell) approx 1.2 miles
Drivers who complete this experience can go on to do our Junior Porsche Stage 2 Driving Experience. Find out more here
