Do ring up the PEC and discuss what the day involves.

Sat in the lecture room for 3/4 hour listening to cr4p being said about human performances and half the time was on the race driver training programme which was a total waste of time

I drove a 718 on the skid pan

A Panamera on the ice hill

Sat in for an off road demo in a Cayenne

Blasted around the circuit in a Macan Turbo PP

Blasted around the circuit in a C4GTS

So I was not to happy that I did not get chance to drive three models around the circuits.

I would not go on a demo day if it was of the same format

BTW
If it is in the week before and after the F1 Grand Prix weekend, I would certainly pass.

There is too much activity around the track preparing and dismanting all the kit and it is very disruptive to the PEC operations.

The low friction circuit and the acceleration straights are taken over for the GP activities hence you are very unlikely to get on them.

So everyone is crammed into 1/2 the PEC hence probably why what they let you do is limited.

It also took us 1 hour to get through Security.
