I’m a big fan of Maserati cars, including the Ghibli S Q4 I recently drove, and love driving schools so when Maserati announced they were bringing the Master Driving School to America, of course, I got excited.
North America is a large and important market for Maserati. They sold nearly 12,000 Ghibli, Quattroporte, GranCabrio and GranTurismo models here in 2015. So it’s hardly surprising they’d want those owners to know how to get the most out of their Italian performance coupes and sedans.
With that in mind, Maserati is bringing their Master GT 1 Day driving program to the States on three days and three different tracks this summer. Designed to help drivers get the most out of their Maseratis, this course will focus on both understanding vehicle dynamics and control, while helping each participant improve his or her driving characteristics.
The Maserati Master instructors will teach you everything from the proper driving position and eyeline to control techniques on dry and wet pavement. They will also help you learn the underlying technologies of the cars and how to use them to get more performance and more enjoyment out of your drives.
Each class is limited to just 21 participants which will be broken up into smaller groups allowing for plenty of individualized instruction. The $2,800 fee includes one day on the track, premium accommodations, arrival reception, meals, classroom and on-track instruction, plus transportation to/from hotels to tracks, insurance, lunch at the circuit and Maserati gifts.
The three options available are:
• June 16/17 at Palm Beach International Raceway, Juniper, Florida
• July 21/22, 2016 New Jersey Motorsports Park, Millville, New Jersey
• August 11/12 Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, California
