Affalterbach – At selected events of the AMG Driving Academy, participants can experience two new Mercedes dream cars - the SLS AMG and the E 63 AMG. The program of events of the AMG Driving Academy, which was founded in 2007, is divided into five different skill levels: EMOTION, BASIC, ADVANCED, PRO and MASTERS. The choice extends from lifestyle-oriented and also race training events at which participants take their first steps towards physical driving limits, right up to intensive race track training of a competitive nature. The various levels of difficulty are all tailor-made to the individual driving aspirations of the participants. The team of experienced AMG Driving Academy instructors includes the likes of former DTM, ITC and FIA-GT champion Bernd Schneider, as well as Bernd Maylander, the driver of the Official F1 ™ Safety Car.

 

The SLS AMG and the E 63 AMG are called into action on occasions when the AMG Driving Academy provides all of the vehicles for the participants. For a number of specific events, at which customers normally take part in their own high-performance AMG cars - such as the AMG PRO Training, AMG PRO Training SLS AMG and the AMG MASTERS Sports Trophy - the SLS AMG is also available as a hire car.

 

During the events of the AMG Driving Academy, drivers and enthusiasts of AMG vehicles gradually learn to assess and master the physical limits of driving in complete safety, at legendary race tracks such as the North Loop of the Nurburgring or the Grand Prix circuit at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. In this way each of the participants automatically improves their active driving safety. Experienced motorsport drivers and licensed instructors impart their extensive knowledge in a professional manner. One special event is the AMG Winter Sporting in Arjeplog (Sweden), close to the Arctic Circle: the AMG high-performance vehicles provided are driven exclusively on expanses of ice. All of the vehicles are equipped with special, spiked tires that ensure a precisely defined level of grip. Prices for the AMG Driving Academy program start from just 290 euros.

 

In addition to the varied event program which takes place on European race tracks, the AMG Driving Academy is also able to provide American sports car fans with some tailor-made race track training, for example at the Laguna Seca Raceway in California.
