The AMG Driving Academy is back for the 2009/2010 year. Drivers of all skill levels are invited to apply for driving tutelage that promises to improve anyone's level of driving skill and fun.
The new 2009/2010 AMG Driving Academy is now accepting registrations from interested parties. Launched in 2007 the Academy has grown in stature over the years. Tailored to suit drivers of all levels of expertise, the tutorship is divided into EMOTION, BASIC, ADVANCED, PRO and MASTERS skill levels.
Highly experienced instructors with years of knowledge and motorsport experience are at hand to guide drivers through each required stage. The latest addition to the instructors' roll is former DTM, ITC and FIA-GT Champion Bernd Schneider. There is no "too experienced" or "too inexperienced" driver as instructors are able to handle students of all sorts. A strong lifestyle element gives flair to the academy which comes out through the EMOTION module that this year includes a drive to Lake Constance and through the landscapes of Vorarlberg to Bregenz/Austria. An opera performance of Verdi's Aida forms part of this particular package.
For the hardcore enthusiast, drives on the Nürburgring or the Grand Prix circuit in Spa-Francorchamps circuits provide a good lesson for them in their AMG cars. At the very pinnacle of the AMG Academy is the AMGMASTERS Sports Trophy which is a series entered into by 25 of the best-trained and/ or most confident drivers who take part in three or four-day events at places like the Ascari Race Resort in Spain. The overall winner gets to drive the current DTM C-Class AMG as his/ her prize.
