“Pilota Ferrari – Challenge Driver School” is an innovative course which combines instruction to perfect driving technique on road-going cars with specific preparation for driving the Challenge model, with the potential for students to get the licence that permits them to compete in the championship of the same name.
The Challenge Driver School offers drivers the opportunity to condense the technical content necessary to drive the Challenge model appropriately and safely into a single course. If students have not previously attended the Evolution Driver Course, this is a requisite for taking part in the Challenge Driver Course. The course comprises an initial day of practical exercises including: telemetric analysis of performance on the track, use of a pace-car, finding the car’s limits in cornering and optimizing overall driving performance, including with the aid of chronometric analysis.Read more
Starting from the second day, the track driving activity develops with the integrated, then intensive use of the Challenge model, with a progression of content based on the improvement of driving technique and performance, concluding with entry to the standard Challenge Course program.
The dynamic of the third day hinges on timed track driving sessions, to allow participants to acquire basic racing concepts, like starting and overtaking techniques, and learn the procedures for the various stages of a race, car set-up methods plus race rules and regulations for the Challenge Championship.
Participation is reserved for a minimum of seven and a maximum of ten students who have already taken the Advanced Course.
Instruction will be provided by six driver-instructors with specialist race driving experience. Students will learn using three 458 Italia, three F12berlinetta, three 458 Speciale and five 458 Challenge cars.
The participation includes three days at the track, transport, three evening meals, a three-night stay at the Grand Hotel de la Ville ***** in Parma, lunches at the track and personalized Pilota Ferrari Course gifts. Each participant may have one or more companions, who will be given the opportunity to take part in a specific program.
We have also designed a special program for guests accompanying pilota Ferrari course participants that includes: cooking lesson, city tour and SPA treatments.
Appropriate racing wear is provided for track driving activities: complete F.I.A.-compliant suit, driving shoes, helmet and gloves for free. There is no dress code for the evening meal.
For safety reasons, we strongly suggest that all clients wishing to take their Ferrari cars out on the track at the end of the course have their vehicles checked beforehand by their regular dealer.
