Corso Pilota Sport
Corso Pilota Sport offers a complete, progressive program focused on giving participants a comprehensive understanding of sport driving techniques. The course consists of a specific and exciting two-day training program based on an exclusive, personalized teaching method, using Ferrari cars for track work and vehicle control exercises. Up to twenty-one customers are divided into three groups of seven participants each and receive direct, engaging instruction on the most efficient driving position in the cockpit, progressive accelerator and brake control, establishing precise driving lines through bends and braking and acceleration techniques. Teaching leads up to thrilling car control exercises that include conditions of power over steer. The course also provides a great opportunity for getting familiar with the actual performance of various Ferrari models thanks to a program that lets you experience different electronic vehicle control setups. The practical instruction is completed by several theory sessions aimed at giving a more in-depth insight into driving technique and helping drivers analyze vehicle behavior.
About the Track:
Considered relatively flat by American standards, the track is a 2.5-mile-long (4.0 km) rectangular oval with dimensions that have remained essentially unchanged since its construction. It has two 5⁄8-mile-long (1,000 m) straightaways, four geometrically identical 1⁄4-mile (400 m) turns, connected by two 1⁄8-mile (200 m) short straightaways, termed “short chutes”, between turns 1 and 2, and between turns 3 and 4.
A modern, FIA Grade One infield road course was completed in 2000, incorporating part of the oval, including the main stretch and the southeast turn, measuring 2.605 miles (4.192 km). In 2008, and again in 2014, the road course layout was modified to accommodate motorcycle racing, as well as to improve competition. Altogether, the current grounds have expanded from an original 320 acres (1.3 km2) on which the speedway was first built to cover an area of over 559 acres (2.3 km2). Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975 and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987, it is the only such site to be affiliated with automotive racing history.
