Overview
More
The Porsche Experience Centre is situated at Silverstone Circuit, the home of British motorsport, in the heart of England. Located next to Hangar Straight, we are on the site of the WRC Rally of Great Britain Special Stage used in the late 1990s. The specially designed track incorporates six elements; Handling Circuit, The Straights, Kick Plate, Ice Hill, Low Friction and Off-Road circuits. This environment enables visitors to be guided through a variety of different situations in wet and dry conditions, as well as simulating ice and snow driving with the use of specially constructed surfaces. The driving experiences are designed to focus on a particular type of driving, model of Porsche or driving environment. Whether you are hoping to attain new skills, polish up some old ones or just have a great time driving, we can help find the right experience for you.
