So the great grand uncle of your second cousin, twice removed, has moved on to the great lounge chair in the sky and left you a hefty sum of money because he hates everybody else in the family. You go out and buy yourself a brand spanking new Porsche 911 GT3. Plenty of fist bumps follow from your buddies and phone numbers from the ladies, everything is looking fine and dandy then. But do you really have what it takes to handle one of Zuffenhausen's wildest beast?

If you so happen to overcook it and write the car off, don't expect the fist bumps and phone numbers to keep flowing. While the German's themselves have fine tuned the rear-engine setup for decades from the first 911, we're still human after all. Of course, somebody from Porsche has realised this, the hard way or not, so you may take your GT3 down to the Porsche Experience Center at Silverstone and get a few pointers from Gordon Robertson, the chief driving consultant.

Robertson will show you the ropes on tackling tight bends, low friction surfaces and just plain try to improve your driving skills. There's a little video on what goes on there and the things Robertson can do for you. For more info, check out the Porsche Experience Shop.
