Cup Experience

A very special kind of event: the Cup Experience, where you can enjoy racing at its very best. Whether in a 911 GT3 Cup, which represents the world’s fastest One-Make-Series, or Cayman GT4 Clubsport, which offers an ideal introduction to the fascinating world of motorsport. The choice is yours. Both models are built for performing at the limit. And to be driven by you. Take to the starting line with a clear objective: the racing line. Five emotionally charged hours await at Porsche Leipzig – on the FIA-certified Porsche on-road circuit.

Due to plant holidays, we do not offer event programmes in the period of July 7th to July 22nd 2018.
Thank you for your understanding.

There will be renovation work carried out in the Customer Center till 25th August 2018. During the renovation, there will be unfortunately no gourmet experience programs offered. Driving Events will only be offered on selected dates. A tour through the customer center is unfortunately not possible during this time

Even the preparations for the Cup Experience kick off at full throttle, as your experienced Porsche racing instructor prepares you step by step for the challenges you will face. Racing suits, gloves and helmets can all be hired. Firstly, you will receive a driver briefing in the road-version of the car - the 911 GT3 or the Cayman S. During the first few laps around the track, the instructor will teach you all the basics you will need to know before switching over to the thoroughbred racing version. In addition, you will be given valuable tips on how to brake and accelerate efficiently and, of course on how to find and follow the best racing line.

While improving your vehicle control and driving skills, you are also provided with an introduction to the racing gear required to comply with the approved FIA standards. A selection of these items can be purchased from us.

The final minutes before the start. In a detailed briefing, your instructor will familiarise you with individual aspects of the 911 GT3 Cup or the Cayman GT4 Clubsport, such as the six-point harness or the perfect seat position. Our professional instructor will also show you how to handle the sequential gearbox and non-ABS steel braking system.

Now it's time for the main highlight, which is guaranteed to set your pulse racing. After leaving the pit lanes, you get to experience four unforgettable 15-minute stints. At your side and connected via intercom, your instructor is on hand throughout to help you reach your goal: your own personal limit. You will learn how to exploit the car's full performance more efficiently and safely. After every stint, your driving is assessed based on data and video analysis to cut those crucial tenths of a second off your time and for an even greater enjoyment on the track. Of course, we will also record this extraordinary day for you. As a memento, you will receive a copy of all video recordings on your laps in digital form.

You are also invited to dine in true Porsche style with an exclusive meal at our restaurant in the Customer Centre. The panoramic views of the entire complex are guaranteed to impress and help you relive a few treasured memories from your Cup Experience – your qualifying round for motorsport and ultimate driving event. If, due to your experience, you are planning to enter into a race series such as the Porsche Sports Cup, our instructor will be pleased to support you and pass on their extensive motorsport expertise. We are also happy to provide you with information about other experiences.
