Ingenuity meets elegance in each meeting room, boardroom and ballroom. With 15,500 square feet of versatile Birmingham event venues, Ross Bridge is ideal for connecting and communicating. A trip to the 12,000 square-foot full-service spa and salon is the perfect remedy for rejuvenating the senses, while the 8,191-yard golf course, the fourth longest in the world and the crown jewel of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, will test your skill and challenge your game.

After the work is finished, fulfill dreams of no limits while looping around the professional 2.38-mile track at Barber. A two-night stay over the class dates will be provided at the hotel in Hoover, AL. In the Precision Class at the Porsche Sport Driving School, learn the essentials of high performance driving while enjoying a full day of professional instruction and hands-on experience around the track. A series of high-performance skills and high-paced laps make this class unique, as each part of the class is viewed from behind the wheel of Porsche's most outstanding vehicles. Taught by some of the world's best driving instructors, sessions are typically sold out months in advance.

Both Ross Bridge and the Barber Motorsports Park are located off I-459 in Birmingham just minutes from each other. "We are delighted to have such a wonderful partnership," said Steve Miller, general manager of the Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa. "Porsche has exceptionally high standards, and we are honored to have been selected as their preferred hotel locally. After our guests finish driving Porsches all day, many are driven to our amazing golf course at Ross Bridge, the fourth longest in the world. Others are selecting spa treatments to rejuvenate themselves in preparation for another day behind the wheel of the amazing Porsches."
