Driver's Education Report
October 1, 2011
By Brian Powell and Tom Morgan
The Cayman R Experience was just part of a great Driver’s Ed weekend at Carolina Motorsports Park in September.

We just put the wraps on our September DE with 115 drivers in attendance. From the line at the Porsche tent, most of them sampled the Cayman R demo program as well. Porsche Cars North America brought 2 Cayman R’s along with 2 instructors from Porsche Sport Driving School. Over the course of the weekend, participants were able to ride with Cass and John from PSDS for hot laps in the Cayman R’s. After my ride, I have new respect for the PDK and its abilities on the track. The Cayman R was no slouch either. Packaged together makes almost the perfect track day vehicle. Perfect would have been getting one as a door prize! Many thanks to PCNA for making the Cayman R demo program available

shaw, SC on October 29th and 30th with the Club Race DE. Racers from all over the East come in for the Carolinas Challenge. This year, the DE portion will have both a solo group as well as a student group. So drivers of all skill levels can come down for the weekend, watch the racing action and get on track themselves. Even if you’re not on track for any of the activities, the Club Race weekend itself is a good reason to visit CMP.

International Raceway on November 18th-20th. This is our annual return to 3.27 mile VIR Full course in Alton, VA. Friday November 18th will be a solo only day, with Saturday & Sunday the traditional student, solo and instructor groups. This date has become a fixture on most everyone’s calendar, great people, great facility, great finale to the year.
