Porsche Camp4: Not About Going Fast, But Going Sideways
by Colum Wood
The first thing you should know about Porsche Camp4 Canada is that it’s not about going fast. Blasphemy you say? A waste of a Porsche you say? Well, you’re wrong.
No, it’s about driving style, and I do mean that in the artistic, not the scientific sense of the word – though there is a lot of science behind it all.

Or, you could slide through the pylons sideways, with your foot on the throttle and more steering than the joints in your arms will allow.
Trust me, you will find the second option the far more rewarding one.
A driving school unlike any other, Camp4 is really more of a lifestyle adventure and officially billed as an “experience” rather than a strict driving school.
