Default PWRS : Porsche World Road Show 2008

hi guys,

got lucky, and attended the porsche world road show at aambey valley.

uploading a few pics.

just realised though, didn't click any pictures of the cayenne GTS and the cayman S which we test drove. Rather didn't click any with me all over it

Enjoy!!

I am attending the event as well - will be reaching there this evening. Wanted to know if they let you photograph your car with the others - I am driving down in my old world 911 Cabrio (993)

I'll try and get some pictures too - and upload them if any turn out nice.

don't ask how i got lucky. :-) and trust me for this, there aren't enough words in my vocabulary to describe the driving experience. the closest i can think of is an orgasm!! and driving so many of them together, multiple orgasm!!:-)
didn't drive all the way there. getting the invite was sheer luck. rest everything was classic me.
missed my flight on sunday to pune. so immediately took a bus in the evening. don't ask about that experience, was horrible to say the least.
reached pune and realised that the car i was planning to take had a broken axle. so took a cab.
was very embarrassing.
was about to enter the airstrip on the previous day, and was promptly told that it is an exclusive event he cant let me in. when i told the gentleman that i am invited, he says no sir you dont understand. this is "limited edition" event.
felt like punching him in the eye. but gave him the coldest look ever, and threw some major attitude. which i think convinced them that i am not just an enthusiast, but a serious one at that!! had he not behaved himself immediately, definately would never have bought a porsche

Lovely pictures guys. It would have been a thrilling experience behind the wheel of one of the best sportscars. So what was the experience like, some details if possible. Samyak you were in the turbo so i am sure controlling the beast would have been tough, till you tamed her or till the instructor showed you how its done.
Incidently today i saw the blue 993 in the morning and thought maybe he was returning from there.

I was actually speechless when i drove the 911 turbo.. the power is insane. i had no words to describe it after i drove it.. just beautiful. they let everyone drive all the cars with good instructors teaching you about the car. Overall had more fun than i expected.

Some Details:

They had different events: with three groups - Yellow, Red and green

I was in the green group,

The first event was Handling - Not much of a handling course than a flat out run on the airstrip with 911 Carrera PDK (PDK something similar to DSG), Cayenne GTS and a Cayenne Turbo.

Then was the Braking - 911 Turbo full acceleration with testing the Boost Function for launch (there was some technical term they used) and then controlling the car through a bend made of cones. Best driving fun personally.

Then was the off-road section - There were 2 people in every cayenne total 6, the green one was for the instructor's, with a very well made course in which they demonstrated the hill descent as well as hill hold function and a bit of driving on rocks and mud.

Then there was lunch.

Last was the Slalom - Boxter S - Timed laps around the track. Good fun with some competition from everyone.

The Demo Laps were at the end in which the instructors were let loose in the 911 Turbo and the Cayenne Turbo and everybody had the oppurtunity to sit in one of them (through a draw of chits) i got to sit in the cayenne and it was crazy, some hair raising powerslides by the instructor and a 180 at the end of the runway was like icing on the cake.
