The Thermal Club - Thermal, CA (November 12-15, 2020)

When you arrive at the track, our staff will greet you. They will help you to register through our iPads® and learn about the program through a short classroom presentation with our lead instructor. You will have the opportunity to interact with the Porsche brand and dive into some of our history through our interactive stations in the Porsche reception area.

Following the classroom session, you will be broken into groups that you will remain in throughout the day. Once in your designated group, you will rotate through three different driving exercises - Timed Autocross, Lead/Follow, Off-Road - and conclude with a Hot Lap. During this thrilling Hot Lap, you will ride in the new Taycan Turbo S, driven by specially-trained and highly-skilled Porsche Track Experience instructors.

To learn more about each exercise and the featured Porsche vehicles, check out the Driving Experiences section below.
