The main reason for owning a Porsche is to drive it, and what better way to drive it than in the company of fellow Porsche drivers!
Rennsport offers a unique structure that allows members to improve their driving skills in controlled and safe environment with highly competent instructors. The basic principles are explained during theory sessions. We also offer many events to put in application the theory; they are the ground school, autocross or driving events.

It’s important that every driver understands the theory of driving. Furthermore any member who wants to participate in a DE for the first time should make it mandatory to attend this course. Also, the day will be split in two groups:
The morning session will cover the basics of driving and the afternoon will be used to discuss advanced techniques and introduce Calabogie (The location, The track, The corners, How to drive it…). The afternoon session is highly recommended to anybody wanting to drive Calabogie.
The objective is to cover the theory and provide a place where the driver can exchange their experiences. All the theory sessions are FREE.
The practice session (Ground school) allows drivers to put in practice the principles learnt during the theory sessions. Drivers will practice their newly acquired skills through many basic exercises (emergency lane change, threshold braking, slalom) then will drive at low speed accompanied with an instructor to experiment the basic driving principles.
The ground school is normally held on a road course circuit.
Check the calendar for the upcoming groundschool dates.
This session starts at 8:00 with the exercise and the afternoon is reserved for on track driving (with instructors) at low speed. No special preparation (no helmet, no fire extinguisher) is required and you can come with any vehicle. The lunch is supplied. More information here
It’s highly recommended for all novices to follow the theory session provided
To get the most from the Theory and Practice sessions we strongly recommend that your read the Rennsport Region Advanced Driver Student Manual. To read this manual you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
In many members’ minds, the most enjoyable events in the club are driver education events. These events offer members a great opportunity to learn more about their driving and the physics of car behaviour in the relatively safe environment of a closed road course.
Experienced club instructors emphasize skill development and practice, while maintaining a high level of safety and self-control. Each year the region offers a number of events that take place on the famous Le Circuit at Mont-Tremblant north of Montreal, Calabogie Motorsport, St-Eustache, Sanair and ICAR racetracks. Although these are racetracks, these events are not about racing or speed for the sake of speed. They are about having fun and improving your driving skills in a safe, closed environment.
Members who plan on coming out to a driving event are strongly encouraged to attend one of our free driving theory sessions held in the early spring in Montreal, Quebec, and Ottawa. (Preference will be given to members who attend theory and practice sessions ground school.)
If you’re a new member and just want to see what all the fun is about, but you’re not quite sure about the whole idea, novice schools are also held at the end of the event first day (if time is permitting). These schools do not put your car on the track, but give you some principles from the longer ground school (above) with an introductory ride in an instructor’s car to demonstrate the principles. This is a great way to experience the track and the company of fellow Porsche drivers.
In return, many PCA members from other regions come to Mont-Tremblant. Last year saw many events sold out well before the closing date, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
Rennsport will use www.Clubregistration.net, like most of PCA. If you have signed up for events at Watkin’s Glen you’ll know about it, in fact if you registered for events with CVR or NER at Le Circuit you had no choice but to use it.
Clubregistration.net is an online automated system which lets you find and register for events in almost all the regions of PCA. Once you have created an account and filled in your information registering for an event with Rennsport or another PCA region takes only a few seconds.
Here’s an idea of how it works :
1. Using your browser, go to www.Clubregistration.net
This year, registration for any event will open roughly 60 days before the event.
It pays to register early since last season several events at Le Circuit sold out rather quickly.
You’ll notice that when you register, you won’t be able to pay for the event(s). Don’t panic! Around five weeks before the event, you’ll receive an email asking you to go back to Clubregistration and pay for the event. At that time you’ll see the option and you’ll be able to pay with a credit card. All charges are in Canadian dollars.
We hope you enjoy the new system and the money you’re saving !
These are NOT timed events and NOT race practices. All timing and timing devices are forbidden.
2. Roll bar for Cabriolets is required except Boxster, 996 and 997 Cabriolets may run as shipped
3. Long pants and lace up shoes are required. Avoid synthetic materials. 100% cotton and/or “Nomex” garments are recommended.
4. Metal to metal mounted fire extinguishers (Type ABC or BC of 2.5lbs minimum capacity) are required. They must be mounted within easy reach of the driver. First time participants are exempt from this requirement for the first event only.
5. Similar safety system (Seats, harness, roll bar, installation…) must be available for both driver and passenger.
6. Only an instructor or their student may be a passenger in a car. Participants must be 18 years old or more and have a valid driver’s license.
7. All participants will have a work assignment during each event. Any participant who is late or fails to perform their work assignment will be penalized.
8. The use of drugs is strictly prohibited. No alcohol open on the site until after 5 PM. Do not consume alcohol at lunch if off site.
9. Rennsport reserves the right to refuse any entrant’s event registration, and to expel any entrant during the event without reason.
10. The DE is restricted to Porsche and Ferrari autos only.
11. Participants should verify with their auto insurance company about coverage during a DE.
12. By submitting your registration you certify that you have a valid drivers’ license and no physical or mental problems, which might jeopardize yourself or others if you participate in these events.
13. Tremblant has adopted a noise limit restriction not to exceed 92DB measured track side at 50 feet. It’s the driver’s responsibility to conform to the restriction and any car judged to exceed the limit may not be allowed to participate
