I am planning to travel to Germany next year for the sake of attending Porsche Driving School course. And due to the fact that I want to make as much use as possible I am considering taking more than one course. The best schedule I found is:
* Precision Training on 17 & 18 July 2010 @ Porsche Leipzig
* g-Force Training 24 & 25 July 2010 @ Porsche Leipzig
* Performance Training 7 & 8 August 2010 @ Porsche Leipzig

This way I'll attend three courses in three consecutive weeks but my question is:

=> Would I be making use of the courses this way? Or do I need to have enough time after each course to practice alone before moving to the next level in order to make better use of the courses?

I've attended both the Precision and the Performance courses at Leipzig. I did not do any additional training between the two courses. I actually wish I could have done them "back-to-back" as you are planning as I would have remembered more of the Leipzig track. I've not attended the g-Force training yet, but given that you will have just completed two days on the Leipzig track, the training should in fact be more beneficial. Porsche does a GREAT job at Leipzig. The facilities are great and the staff/instructors are OUTSTANDING. I'm planning on repeating the Performance course this year along with g-Force and hopefully join them at Spa and at the "Ring." So, bottom line: Do it!!!!!!

May I ask if somebody knows why is it a prerequisite for Porsche Driving School in Germany to undergo the Precision Course before the Performance Course while at Porsche Sport Driving School in Alabama it is not.

I am weighing my options to consider the one in Alabama instead.

And something else, would the certificate obtained from the Alabama School be recognized by the one in Germany in case I decided to go further with the courses in Germany?

Just a guess but it may have something to do with the mindset to getting a driver's license in Germany versus getting one in the US. The Germans take it a lot more seriously. Here in Ohio if you are 15 1/2 and breathing you can get a permit.
