The mission and purpose of the Riesentöter Driver's Education (DE) Program is to provide a safe, structured and controlled teaching and learning environment. The PCA DE Program is designed so that participants can improve their driving abilities and acquire a better understanding of vehicle dynamics and driving safety. Participants will experience first-hand the capabilities of high performance automobiles in a controlled, closed-course environment and acquire skills that will enhance safer vehicle operation in all driving situations.
Our instructors will teach you to drive your Porsche the way it is designed to be driven. Riesentöter DE schools are run in a safe and controlled environment on a closed course. Like any new sport your instructor will guide you into this exciting world of high performance driving. These weekends are great sources of stories for the Monday morning coffee break. You will have dreams about various turns and wake up with memories of your instructor yelling “brake!” or “don't lift!” These schools are truly the only safe way to learn the engineering dynamics that went into the development of this famous racing marque. However, it is noted that Riesentöter DE events are not racing, nor preparation for racing. No times or placings are recorded, and no awards or prizes are received by the participants of Riesentöter Driver's Education events; just a lot of fun and camaraderie. Any conduct considered by the Riesentöter club to be either unsafe or inconsistent with the spirit or purpose of the Drivers' Education Program will not be permitted. This approach keeps the events safe for all participants!
Warning: This adventure can become very addictive.
If you are a first-timer, you should read the Riesentöter Drivers' Education Manual prior to your first event, as it will help to familiarize you with the Riesentöter Driver's Education experience. There is a lot of good stuff in this publication. The manual will also introduce you to the topics that will be discussed in the classroom, as well as acquainting you with Registration and Tech requirements and procedures. And I'm sure that some of our more seasoned members will find things such as the "What to Take" checklist to be quite helpful.
