Tearin' it Up at the Porsche Sport Driving School

I must say; I have a great job.

Not only do we get to test some of the best tires here on our own track in South Bend, but occassionally we're offered the opportunity to attend performance/racing driving schools like the Porsche Sport Driving School in Birmingham, AL.

I just came back from a trip to that school where, against all reason and logic, I was given a shot at driving some of the most powerful sports cars in existence. And under the scalding Alabama summer sun -- it was close to 110 degrees at track side -- we spent two full days exploring the limits of these awesome machines, lap after lap at the amazing Barber Motorsports Park.

Thankfully, the Porsches were equipped with the equally awesome Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires. I have tested those tires several times on different cars under different driving conditions, and I am always amazed at how well they perform. It's no wonder it is the tire of choice of the PSDC -- we drove those things continuously at the limit and they kept growling and asking for more. Every corner, every straightaway, the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 provided the confidence for us to keep pushing the cars to their highest capabilities, following our learning curve as we drove faster and faster with every new driving session.

For all you Porsche owners out there, whether you are a weekend warrior at the track or a spirited driver on the way home from a hard day's work, I am confident to recommend the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 for its amazing grip on the dry, superb handling, and outstanding responsiveness.
