The Porsche Racing Experience is a shortcut. It makes possible what would otherwise require the tedious path of youth karting, various junior series and a bit of luck: the direct jump into a Porsche Cup vehicle and participation in a racing series as well as a motorsport career in three steps.

Level 1:

Intensive training. A race weekend is simulated. You learn all the basics in theory and practice. On- and offtrack data is collected, evaluated and analyzed and the international D-license for racing is acquired. Advanced driving skills and solid fitness are required.

Level 2:

The first racing season. At the end of Level 1 the participant starts his first season, e.g. in the Porsche Sports Cup or the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge. The emergency vehicle is a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Generation II. The full-service also includes the organization of all race procedures during the season, as well as simulator training and a physiotherapist.

Level 3:

Perfection. At this point we move on to individual career planning, comprehensive coaching and full-service. With the acquisition of the international C license, the doors to all Porsche Motorsport series are open. The next places are available for 2019, and in 2020 nothing should stand in the way of a start at Le Mans.

All in all, the program costs just under 50,000 euros. Only the media- and interview-coach of Kimi Räikönen comes on top of that.
