Advanced Course - 26/27 September 2013 - Varano
The Pilota Ferrari Advanced Course is a sports driving course reserved for Ferrari clients who have already completed the Sports Driving Course. It takes place at the Varano dè Melegari Paletti Circuit near Parma, structure perfectly and technologically equipped for sports driving courses with high performance cars. Participants will learn to drive Ferrari cars to their maximum ability and will acquire advanced skills in fast driving and vehicle control, thanks to more personal instruction and an excellent participant/instructor ratio. The various specialist activities covered include track sessions with onboard data acquisition systems and telemetry analysis, track driving with a pace car, vehicle control under limit conditions and a final skill-based competition with driver rankings and the possibility to get to know better the Challenge car.
Between 16 and 20 participants are admitted to each course, and divided into four groups of 4 or 5 participants each, with a staff of 11 drivers-instructors.
