Sepang, Malaysia - Having completed the Individual course (better known to me as level 1) of the Porsche Media Driving Academy last year, this year the organisers decided to up the ante by allowing a bunch of us journalists do the Elite (level 2) and Professional (level 3) courses over a course of two days.

Yup, it was literally a race driver boot camp. While the individual course only dabbled in driving basics and vehicle dynamics through a series of exercises, the Elite and Professional courses were on a different plane altogether.

We got to try out a variety of Porsches from the 911 GT3 to the Cayman/Boxster GTS and even the Panamera Turbo S on the entire length of the Sepang track all the while being guided under the watchful eyes of a team of Porsche MDA instructors that comprised of former/current international race/rally drivers who gave us vital tips in correcting our lines and footwork.
