Master Maserati and escape to Lapland

Master Maserati Driving Course

Maserati has the perfect way to escape the summer heat – the Maserati SnowMaster Experience driving course held in Lapland in March 2016 is just 70 km shy of the Arctic Circle where temperatures as low as a bracing minus 37 degrees ensure any vestige of summer will be left behind while driving the full Maserati range on vast frozen lakes will maintain the excitement level.

For most of us, to get behind the wheel is a dream waiting to come true. Take a look at the video and you’ll know what I mean.

The new ice-bound course is the first event in the Master Maserati Driving Course programme which has been extended and made even more comprehensive for 2016 with tailor-made courses designed for those seeking the best-designed, most exclusive experience to teach how to handle Maserati cars in all situations, squeezing out every drop of adrenalin while being in full control at the wheel.

For the 2016 Driving Courses season there are two brand new formats: beginning in March, for the first time Maserati have created an extraordinary, exclusive “SnowMaster Experience” in Lapland. At its core, control in extreme conditions on snow and ice at Arjeplog, just 70 km from the Arctic Circle; here participants will improve their driving skills to the utmost and fully exploit Maserati cars’ impressive performance even in the most extreme conditions, in a very enjoyable, driving-intensive two-day course.

The second innovation is the “Master Premium”, a two-day course packed with thrills, focusing on advanced GT driving techniques with safety and sporty driving as its aims. The perfectly balanced, carefully developed course is taught by top professional instructors highly skilled in teaching the right techniques for driving high-performance cars. This advanced course includes in-depth telemetry analysis and exercises in oversteer control, as well as several other emergency driving skills.

The two brand new Master Maserati Driving Courses enhance the scope of an already complete, wide range of Driving Course experiences: starting from the “Master Warm Up” for entering the Maserati world as a favoured guest, continuing with the classic “Master GT 1 Day”, to the “Master High Performance” for more skilled drivers, who will be taught GT driving techniques in high-performance cars to true professional racing driver standard, through to the “Master Italian Lifestyle Experience“, which blends together all the best-known, most attractive features of Italian culture and fine living.

Not only for sport and luxury car enthusiasts or customers, dedicated “Master Incentive” driving courses can also be specifically arranged for companies, as an ideal programme for motivational events, team building and conventions.

To enable participants to experience the entire range, all Maserati models will be used for the courses: from the flagship Quattroporte sedan, now at its sixth generation, to the Ghibli, Maserati’s new sports saloon, through to the brand’s sportiest models, the GranTurismo coupe and the GranCabrio convertible. A fleet of fifteen vehicles, each with an audio/video recording system installed on board, will be available to help participants to understand in depth, with the instructors, the quality of their performance and how to improve their driving skills. They are guaranteed exciting experiences and emotional thrills, whilst ensuring they use their on-road driving techniques with safety and control, even in emergency situations.

In terms of location, the “SnowMaster Experience” will be held on fantastic tracks in scenic Lapland, the ideal place for learning all the skills required to driving with confidence on the most treacherous of surfaces; participants will have the unique opportunity to drive in the same conditions and on the same testing areas where all Maserati cars are extensively tested in-depth at low temperatures during their development phase.

All the other Master Maserati Driving Courses will be held at the Autodromo Varano de’ Melegari, approximately 20 km from Parma; the circuit is perfect for developing driving skills and combines excellent track characteristics with professional facilities, ensuring that track sessions take place with the maximum safety, under the careful teaching supervision of the best Master instructor-drivers, selected and led by former Formula 1 driver Andrea de Adamich.
