Mercedes-Benz AMG Driving Academy

April 4, 2008

AFFALTERBACH, GERMANY – At the AMG Driving Academy, you can tackle the curves in an AMG roadster and get coaching from experts, according to edmunds.com. Founded by Mercedes-AMG in 2007, the academy offers everything from introductory driving events to advanced targeted racetrack training. Five programs are offered in a range of levels of difficulty and required skill: Emotion, Basic, Advanced, Pro, and Master.

 

Drivers can familiarize themselves with advanced techniques at racetracks like the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife loop and the Grand Prix course at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. AMG captures driving times and longitudinal and traverse acceleration, tracking each participant’s progress during an adrenaline-filled experience. Skilled drivers can also benefit from the exclusive AMG Masters Sports Trophy competition series, a three- or four-day event in which drivers compete to collect points for a unique “top prize”: a chance to drive the latest AMG DTM C-Class. 

Students can drive their own AMG models or similarly tuned models provided by the AMG Driving Academy. Choices include the C63 AMG, the CLS63 AMG, and the SLK55 AMG Black Series. Full details are available at mercedes-amg.com/Driving-Academy/.
