2011 Ferrari Driving Experience
Anyone in North America doing this? A new program date has been added to the 2011 schedule.
Soon after our registration opened in January, it became clear that we were going to sell out quickly. With this in mind, June 27–28 is now being offered as an additional BASIC course at Le Circuit Mont Tremblant. We expect all programs to be completely sold out shortly. A complete schedule is noted below.
Basic and Advance courses are hosted at The Hotel Quintessence, a 5-star resort located minutes from the circuit. Both the track and resort environment are located 75-minutes north of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. As a reminder, the Ferrari Driving Experience is open exclusively to Ferrari owners. SCHEDULE June 7–8 Basic
June 9–10 Advance
June 27–28 Basic
July 20–21 Advance Aug 1–2 Basic
Aug 15–16 Basic
Aug 17–18 Advance
Aug 29–30 Basic PROGRAM OVERVIEW BASIC: The Ferrari Driving Experience is an exclusive two-day precision driving school that allows Ferrari Owners to experience the performance of a Ferrari in the controlled environment of a race track. Students drive the 458 Italia, 599 HGTE and California and learn various driving techniques including threshold braking, managing weight transfer and identifying the proper track line. Although the setting is a race track, the Ferrari Driving Experience is not a racing school. The focus is on learning to drive and control a Ferrari properly and to understand and communicate with the vehicle. Skills are progressively developed before students lap the complete Mont-Tremblant race track. Course fee is $9,700 USD.
ADVANCE: For graduates of the Basic level. The premise of the Advance level is to further develop the skills identified in the Basic program, and to provide even greater comfort and confidence at speed. In-depth training, including the use of telemetry analysis, includes theory sessions and involves highly personalized instruction. Like the Basic level, students drive the 458 Italia, 599 HGTE and California but are also exposed to the new 458 Challenge race car driven by a professional instructor. Course fee is $11,900 USD plus an optional $800 damage liability limitation.
GUESTS: Because the setting is spectacular and extremely hospitable to family and friends of drivers, guests are encouraged to attend this event. The guest fee is $950 USD and includes shared lodging with a registered student, all program meals at the Hotel Quintessence, shuttles to and from the circuit and a hot lap of the track with a professional driver.
