Bus Stop

Spa-Francorchamps/Belgium
Type: left-right-left chicane.
Character: the key to speed is courage – and perfection. Keep as straight as a die, then turn the car and accelerate out of the curbs under full load.

Curve di Lesmo

Monza/Italy 
Type: right-hand corner (oval).
Character: the curve that never ends. This extremely long-sweeping turn can be taken quicker than you think due to the almost imperceptible incline on the inside.

Loews

Monte Carlo/Monaco
Type: right-hand turn with slight incline.
Character: the notorious Loews curve includes the fastest and slowest sections of the circuit. On entry, you have to reduce your speed by almost 200 km/h (124 mph) and complete three precise gearshifts.

Mobil 1 S

Nürburgring/Germany
Type: right-left chicane.
Character: the S curve that throws up a host of questions. Too fast or too slow? With curbs or without? 2nd or 3rd gear? Approach from the outside or keep tight at corner entry? If you can answer these, you’ve perfected your driving skills.

Suntory Corner

Shizuoka/Japan
Type: right-left combination.
Character: after braking hard and downshifting, manage the load changes sensitively to exit a curve with a very big radius and go straight into an extremely tight bend.

Parabolica

Monza/Italy
Type: right-hand corner.
Character: this 180-degree bend can be completed at a virtually constant steering angle. But be prepared for fast cornering speeds and high lateral acceleration.

Corkscrew

Laguna Seca/USA
Type: right-left-right combination.
Character: 12 % gradient. And you can’t see into the bend at all. Added to this, there’s the constant switch between understeer and oversteer, and the high g-forces on entry. In short: simply spectacular.

Victoria Turn

Rio de Janeiro/Brazil
Type: left-hand corner with almost imperceptible incline.
Character: brake accurately and reduce  speed drastically. Then, enter the turn with precision and, above all, avoid understeer. NB: don’t accelerate too soon – wait for the late apex.

Suzuka S

Suzuka/Japan
Type: left-right combination.
Character: at speeds of well over 200 km/h (124 mph), finding the ideal braking point is crucial. Due to the raised topography and a mid-corner gearshift, care should be taken not to oversteer.

Sunset Bend

Sebring/USA
Type: right-hand corner.
Character: a fast corner with high g-forces. Depending on the vehicle, shift up from 2nd to 4th gear under full load before heading into the longest straight on the circuit at around 170 km/h (105 mph).

Karussell

Nürburgring/Germany
Type: steep banked curve (180-degree).
Character: 2nd gear. On entry, you have to find the exact turn-in point. Exiting the corner, you have to choose the right line and speed. On the last third, the g-forces are incredible. If you take it too quickly, you’ve no chance.

Dynamic stretch

Purpose: built to simulate extreme situations with real speeds. So that the driver can cautiously approach their own limits, and the limits of physics, in safe surroundings. Perhaps in a slalom, or braking and avoidance exercises. The aim is  to master these extreme driving limits. 

Skid pad

Purpose: used as a training area for coping with unstable driving conditions. The skip pad can be flooded for that purpose. From ‘slightly wet’ to ‘monsoon-type rain’. Best conditions for practising drift and experiencing oversteering  and understeering. 

Porsche on-road circuit

Accelerating, braking, cornering, maintaining the racing line.
The feeling is indescribable, as you’ll soon find out. In every hundredth of a second. On our FIA-certified on-road circuit, which is modelled on famous sections from racetracks around the world: from the first bend, based on the S curve at Suzuka, to the very last curve sequence reminiscent of the Suntory Corner.

Our on-road circuit has now been expanded to include a dynamic circuit whose attractions include a 150-metre dynamic driving area and a wet handling section. Take up the challenge on tarmac. Far from everyday restrictions and always close to the limit.
