New Master Maserati driving courses for 2018

Master

An exclusive driving experience with professional drivers on board the Maserati range

Modena, 14 May 2018 – The new Master Maserati programmes are tailored for the various levels of experience, under the constant watchful eye of the best Maserati drivers, enabling participants to learn all the secrets of sporty driving and put their skills at the wheel to the test, thanks to a completely renewed fleet of cars including all the models in the Maserati range.

The 2018 season comprises a selection of programmes: Master on track – subdivided into four courses, Practice, Qualifying, Race and Championship, Master off road – offering two courses, Rally Shakedown and Rally Power Stage, and Master Incentive, conceived for groups and companies, which can be personalised to the customer’s requirements. All courses are designed for all those seeking an exclusive experience that will teach them how to handle a Maserati like a real racing driver in all situations, revelling in the pure adrenalin but with the greatest safety.

To make every aspect of the course unforgettable, all the Maserati models will be used: from the Quattroporte flagship to the Ghibli luxury sedan, the Levante SUV and the GranTurismo and GranCabrio sports cars. Every car is equipped with a telemetry system to allow participants to assess their driving performance with the instructors and understand how they can improve their skills. Thrilling experiences with a strong emotional impact, and an excellent way of learning control and safety in even the most extreme road conditions.

All Master Maserati driving courses take place on the Varano de’ Melegari circuit, twenty or so kilometres from Parma, Italy. With a lavish set of facilities and high safety standards, it is the ideal circuit for an enjoyable learning experience. The new off-road area, within a private nature reserve, offers a harsh environment on technical trails with plenty of natural obstacles and barriers. Additional features such as the low grip surface and the slide machine enrich the range of the possible activities, for a truly complete experience with the perfect blend of technique, learning and fun.
