Sport driving is enhanced by rear-wheel drive, especially if equipped with a limited slip differential.

This year we have a fleet of excellent cars, all BMW M with 30% differential or active (0-100%).

But also the latest BMW “X” to develop the best techniques with all-wheel drive.

This is a specialization course in special driving techniques on snow and ice to develop maximum sensitivity and to know all the special driving techniques suited to these conditions.

It develops the ability to assess grip conditions, to achieve directionality and stability in the most critical circumstances and the ability to maintain control of the car in the most difficult grip conditions.

N.B. The course could be canceled only in the case of several consecutive days of great heat.
