Porsche Sport Driving School

At the beginning of March I fulfilled a long time goal of mine and attended a driving school. I've always been into race cars, and a driving school was the perfect opportunity to not only drive a high-performance car, but to learn how to push it to the limits. So about a year ago I was able to get an incentive set up through my work to reach this goal of mine. I went with my good friend Rob and one of the owners of APX, Shawn. We traveled to Alabama to Porsche Sport Driving School at Barber Motor Sports Park and attended a 2-day High Performance Driving Course. The icing on this cake is that we were able to drive Porsches the entire time. There is something about going 120 mph on a race track two car-lengths behind your buddy with a hairpin turn coming up. You have to trust that when you slam on the brakes the car is going to stop. Luckily, we paid the extra insurance in case the car didn't stop. I highly suggest this driving school to anyone who likes speed and an adrenaline rush. It was a blast and I now have a new goal-- to own a Porsche.

I've had the Honda up that fast, anyways Dude Stacy said she enjoyed the time that you spent with her and the kids in Alabama. Remember a Prosche is cool but if it doesnt wake the neighbors it not worth having!
