Driving is a highly technical activity that involves all our skills: to drive well you need to be able to know the dynamics of the car in order to prevent any loss of grip.

This course develops the ability to correctly evaluate speed, distance, vehicle movement and its position on the road. It also trains pupils to control the car in emergency situations and in all critical grip conditions with sports cars.

A training that reproduces sudden dangers, braking, obstacles, wet curves and slippery asphalts. In addition, the pupils will face various types of road curves on the track, allowing them to train themselves to correctly evaluate the approach speed of the curve, the intensity of the braking and the trajectories and the safest techniques in slow corners and fast corners.

All our courses can be attended by people with physical disabilities thanks to the SpecialMente program
  • EMERGENCY BRAKING. On wet asphalt with low grip coefficient, at 80 km/hr the pupil will brake in front of a sudden obstacle but, failing to stop in the few available meters, it is also necessary to try to avoid the obstacle during the braking phase. This exercise teaches to take full advantage of the car’s braking potential and to obtain less stopping spaces from the ABS. At the side it is displayed the actual stopping space with numbered palettes.
  • STEERING PAD UNDERSTEER. In a circle of 80 meters in diameter, irrigated and with slippery asphalt, you will test all the possible adherence losses of the front axle: understeer in the insertion of a curve, understeer in transit and understeer under acceleration.
  • SKID CAR OVERSTEER. The skid car mounted on the rear wheels of the car allows the pupil to get sudden loss of adherence of the rear axle at low speed, in such conditions that do not create anxiety or danger. This way the pupil develops sensitivity to the steering wheel and the automatism of the counter-steering maneuver in emergency; it is also ideal to learn the right counter steering technique: the crossover technique.
  • OVERSTEER IN A BEND. It takes place with a rear-wheel drive car in a curve with slippery and irrigated paint, excluding the traction control systems. This way we obtain a “power oversteer” and the work focuses on the control of the skid. At the end check the effectiveness of the control systems by testing the exercise with the partially inserted (DTC) and totally inserted (DSC) system.
  • POWER OVERSTEER. Control the power of over 300 hp. It trains the sensitivity  in dosing the power and perfects the speed of counter steering and realignment maneuvers.
  • OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE. A sudden obstacle consisting of a barrier of water commanded by the instructor with a radio control is the emergency to which you have to react: you need a strong steering to avoid the obstacle but you must then control the vehicle becoming unstable during the next realignment.

JOB ON TRACK:

  • DRIVING DIAGNOSIS. First verification of the pupil’s approach with the car, analysis of the main driving techniques and the ability to correctly evaluate speeds. 3 laps to evaluate the approaching cornering techniques and the work on the curve trajectories. This exercise highlights the importance of a correct position of the hands on the steering wheel and allows testing the behavior of the car in support during strong load transfers in the double transients.
  • 1 INSTRUCTOR LAP will show the correct technique and line thru the corner.
  • TRACK LAPS. 5 laps to work on the driving techniques, on the correct evaluation of the speed approaching the curve and on the consequent braking distances and downshifting techniques.
  • TRACK LAPS. Last series of 5 laps,speed will be perfected and final verification of the work done and summary of the guide.
  • THEORY. Interactive and multimedial theory on each work isle.

   N.B. a total of 14 laps on the international racetrack

Q: I am a MINI / BMW owner, am I entitled to discounts? A: Of course, contact the sales office to get all the information about it. Q: I am a new driver, am I entitled to discounts? A: Of course, contact the sales office to get all the information about it. Q: I am a holder of a "special" driving license, can I still take part in the courses? A: Of course! Thanks to the SpecialMente program, even people with motor disabilities can take part in our courses aboard one of our BMW cars prepared by Guidosimplex. Contact the sales department and ask for all the details. Q: May a bring a companion? A: We offer a particular program that allows companions to follow the pupils on all the work islands, in addition to the possibility of carrying out a courtesy test. Q: Can I choose which car to take the course with? A: Except for some specific courses, we combine suitable cars according to the course teaching. Some programs also include the use of BMW M cars. Q: Can I use my car to take part in the course? A: Our vehicles are subjected to regular checks before and after each event, to ensure maximum safety at all times, for this reason it will not be possible to use your car during the courses. Q: Is it possible to gift a course to another person? A: It is possible to purchase a nominative gift voucher with an open date to be gifted to the guest. He will then decide the date, among those in the calendar, in which to participate. Discounts are also available for all gifts, contact the sales office for details. Q: In case of damage to vehicles during the course, will I have to pay anything? A: All our vehicles are covered by Kasko insurance and accident insurance, excluding racing cars for which a insurance deductible is applied. Q: I enrolled in a course, what clothing should I bring? A: We recommend wearing a windbreaker even in good weather. We also recommend wearing low-heeled shoes, which are comfortable for driving.
