The course 

The Pilota Ferrari - Advanced Course is a sports driving course for Ferrari customers who have already completed the Sport Course. It takes place at the Varano Circuit near the city of Parma, a track technologically equipped for sports driving courses with high performance cars. The Advanced Course further develops the techniques and content taught in the Sport course. Participants will learn to drive Ferrari cars to their maximum ability and will acquire advanced skills in fast driving and vehicle control, thanks to more personal instruction and an excellent participant/instructor ratio. Course instruction is tailored to suit the technical abilities and driving style of each individual participant and also focuses on driving performance. The various specialist activities covered include track sessions with onboard data acquisition systems and telemetry analysis, track driving with a pace car, vehicle control under limit conditions and two final skill-based competitions with driver rankings. There will also be two driving sessions with a 488 Challenge car for each participant on the second day of the course.



Twenty participants are admitted to each course, and are divided into four groups of five each, with a staff of 11 drivers-instructors.


Instructors and cars 

The Pilota Ferrari Advanced Course is delivered by a select group of professional drivers who have all competed internationally and who have taught for several years on Pilota Ferrari courses. A fleet of nine 488 GTBs, four 812 Superfasts and three 488 Pistas will be made available to participants in 2019. Six 488 Challenges will be available to students for a demonstration session and two driving sessions in the afternoon of the second day. Participants are also welcome to take their own Ferraris around the track at Fiorano at the end of the course.
