There are many new elements for the 22nd season of the Master Maserati driving courses: the full range of the Brand’s most powerful models and “MC20 Master”, the first exclusive driving experience for new owners of the MC20 supercar.
Master Maserati courses offer a rich, customised, unconventional array of driving experiences: four different formats (Engine Start, GT, Sport and MC20 Master) and 10 dates (depending on the course) from 27 May to 14 October at the Varano de’ Melegari circuit (Parma, Italy).
The driving courses are tailored for varying levels of proficiency and take place under the watchful eye of qualified professional instructors.
The vehicles used are Levante Trofeo, Ghibli Trofeo and MC20.
The focus is on power: the experience is unforgettable, with driving pleasure and performance at its heart.
Since 1999, a total of more than 550 Master Maserati driving courses have been held, with more than 700 days on the circuit. Over 7,000 clients from more than 50 countries worldwide have taken the wheel of the different models, with a particularly large proportion (32%) of non-European Maserati enthusiasts, from Asian countries and the United States of America above all.
Courses are run in partnership with Scuderia de Adamich. The Scuderia de Adamich has been a partner and coordinator of the Master Maserati driving courses ever since 1999, and thanks to this strong, enduring relationship, it has perfected various methodologies and multiple courses over time.
In the span of 22 years of activity, about 30 different Maserati models have been used, and for 2021, amongst the cars available to participants will be the new Maserati MC20, the halo car that has heralded in the Brand’s new Era.
Master Maserati Driving Experience 2021: the courses
The entry-level Master Maserati Course, “Engine Start”, is a half-day experience offering participants all the excitement of driving two of Maserati’s most powerful models, Ghibli Trofeo and Levante Trofeo, around a racetrack. All participants can also enjoy the thrill of a hot lap as a passenger on board the MC20 supercar, driven by a professional driver.
The new GT course comprises a whole day’s driving and a more intensive programme than the “Engine Start” level, with fast-handling sessions, video analysis and on-board telemetry. The programme offers the opportunity to improve driving skills on board Ghibli Trofeo, Levante Trofeo and MC20 (in GT Driving Mode).
The SPORT course is the most advanced one-day driving experience offered by Master Maserati 2021. In this experience, participants can enhance their driving abilities during an entire day at the wheel of Ghibli Trofeo, Levante Trofeo and MC20 (driving sessions in GT & SPORT Driving Modes). The day on the track is completed by individual coaching sessions, video analysis and on-board telemetry, as well as the chance to hone their high-performance track driving at the wheel of the GranTurismo MC GT4 race car in racing set-up.
The ultimate level of driving experience is reserved for MC20 owners and comprises two full days, dedicated to discovering the secrets of the new Maserati car. Just as in a university master’s degree course, drivers learn specialist techniques behind the wheel of a super sports car and how to exploit the MC20’s extreme performance to the full in all driving modes: GT, SPORT and RACE, with and without the aid of electronic controls.
The 2021 Master Maserati Driving Experiences are true immersive experiences that give enthusiasts a first-hand insight into Maserati’s DNA.
The exclusive programmes designed for companions not actively participating in the driving course are a new feature of this year’s edition.
In perfect Maserati style, non-driving guests will be able to explore the hills of Italy’s Emilia region by e-bike, take a relaxing break at a Thermal Spa, or enjoy a culinary experience led by a top chef, or an afternoon’s shopping.
What’s more, all guests will be offered the chance to experience the thrills and adrenaline of a lap of the circuit in a Maserati driven by a professional driver.
