Corso Pilota programs have been developed not only as intensive instruction for owners and drivers at every level of experience, but also as an opportunity for wish-fulfillment. To understand and experience for one’s self the true capabilities and mechanical passion that comes from every pore of a Ferrari is to better understand the breeding. And we are thrilled to announce that for the first time, all four Corso Pilota levels offered in Europe will also be offered in North America.
During Sport Program’s two days, students learn various driving techniques including threshold braking, weight transfer, managing acceleration, identifying ideal driving lines and discovering limits of adhesion in wet and dry conditions.
Advance programs are available for graduates of the Sport Program. Like the Sport program, Advance courses follow Corsa Pilota curricula in Italy and further develop skills honed in the Sport Program, providing greater comfort and confidence at speed. In-depth training includes the analysis of captured data, theory sessions in the classroom and highly personalized instruction.
Now available for graduates of the Advance Program, Evolution transitions from precision driving to more dynamic race preparatory programs. These courses further develop driver skills and introduce new race theory as well as the 458 Challenge car in lapping sessions to complete the program. Data capture tools are used, helping show students exactly where and when their turning, braking and acceleration techniques excel and where they might be improved. Technical and theory sessions are included as is highly personalized instruction.
The Challenge Program is for those with greater experience and an eye on competition or track days. Extremely limited in capacity and only available to graduates of Advance and Evolution Programs, the Challenge Program features approximately 75% of the course driving time conducted in the 458 Challenge car. Drivers are required to wear full racing suits, helmets and gloves, and Ferrari can provide these, if necessary. The curriculum relies heavily on data capture tools, theory sessions and highly personalized instruction.
