Too often the purchase and ownership of a Porsche vehicle is just a sales transaction, and for the the typical dealership just another sale for the month. For us, the reality is much more than that. It is our mission to provide customers the opportunity to truly experience the Porsche brand, from hosting events at the Dealership (such as our 24h of Le Mans Live, celebrating Porsches return to one of the most venerable races in Motorsport), to the amazing, and unforgettable, Camp4 winter driving experience program in Quebec coming up this winter. For us, the Porsche ownership experience does not stop with the purchase of a vehicle...it is just the beginning!
A perfect example of our commitment to providing the full Porsche experience, can be found in our recent partnership announcement with 6th Gear Lapping. The partnership provides our customers, and like minded enthusiastic performance car drivers, the opportunity to experience a Porsche in its natural environment, on the track, under professional, and safe tutelage. For 6th Gear, this is an opportunity to partner with a Porsche Dealership and offer their customers the chance to experience the best cars in the world.
We selected 6th Gear because they have a great reputation of providing a relaxing and fun track day experience. People are there to improve their driving skills in a safe and controlled environment on an internationally renowned race track, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (previously known as Mosport Park International Raceway).
A typical lapping day with Porsche Centre Oakville/6th Gear includes seven hours of open lapping in your own car! We also provide a Porsche vehicle with a professional Porsche Sport Driving School instructor so attendees can go out for hot laps. The instructor during our last lapping day was Porsche Driving Legend Kees Nierop, winner of the Sebring 12 Hours Endurance race, factory driver at Le Mans and Daytona Beach, and Canadian GT-1 Champion (among other notable races). In addition, General Manager, Francesco Policaro, is often present with his Porsche GT3RS and brings others along for hot laps. It's a full safety supported program with marshals on hand, in a friendly atmosphere guaranteed to provide an unforgettable experience.
Of course, any unforgettable experience includes delicious food. A gourmet breakfast starts the day, followed by a barbecue grill lunch, and a wrap-up snack at the end of the day. This is some of the best food you will find anywhere, let alone a race track!
As an added benefit, we also provide pit services. Our Gold Certified Technician, Dirk Dunschede, is always on site to provide support for Porsche vehicles on the track and answer any technical questions. In addition to Dirk, our event team is always close at hand along with Driver Selection merchandise available for purchase and a feature Porsche car on display.
Experience Porsche beyond the purchase.
