2019 Master Maserati Driving Courses Bring New Formats
The new season of the Master Maserati Driving Courses have officially begun, with 11 events scheduled at the Varano de’ Melegari circuit. It will conclude on 7 November this year.
The House of the Trident is also celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its Master Maserati Driving Courses in partnership with Scuderia de Adamich this year.
In the spring of 1999 the Master Maserati project was launched, with the first 2-day Master GT course, held at the Autodromo Riccardo Paletti at Varano de’ Melegari and attended by 12 customers.
Under the supervision of Andrea de Adamich, a lifetime racing aficionado and former F1 driver, and his staff, participants took the wheel of powerful 3200 GT coupé cars for a series of activities combined with specific on-track exercises, with state-of-the-art data acquisition systems to analyse their performance on the circuit, provide invaluable feedback and correct driving errors.
Since then, more than 500 Master Maserati Driving Courses have been held, with over 700 days on the circuit. Over 7,000 customers and enthusiasts from more than 50 different countries have taken the wheel of the various Maserati models during the courses’ twenty years in operation.
From 1999 to the present, almost 30 different Maserati models have been used for these courses, including the Quattroporte and since 2014, the Ghibli sport sedan. The 3200 GT Coupe was used until 1998 before the GranTurismo came as its replacement in 2008.
Also included in the fleet are the Trofeo Maserati, the Coupé Cambiocorsa, the GranSport and GranSport MC as well as the GranTurismo MC GT4 as the key model for Race and Championship courses.
From 2016, the Levante also took to the track with an innovative new format combining circuit driving sessions with off-road experiences. To accommodate these, a new 11 km off-road track was created near the circuit.
For 2019 the Master Maserati Driving Courses offer no fewer than five different formats with different thrilling experiences at the wheel of Trident cars.
Four types of courses focus on circuit driving at the Riccardo Paletti track at Varano de’ Melegari, in the Quattroporte, Ghibli, GranTurismo, GranCabrio and Levante models.
One further course is specifically for businesses seeking to grow and consolidate team spirit, making full use of the enjoyment and ethos of the unique, tailor-made Master Maserati Driving Course.
Master Maserati Driving Courses use the Modena firm’s full range of cars, with the aim of constantly improving participants’ driving skills and style thanks to constant coaching by professional drivers in the role of instructors.
