Maserati adds the 5-star delights of Tuscany to its driving masterclass programme

Most luxury car makers offer a programme of driving courses set in exotic locations, most popular of which seem to be the frozen lake and winter driving events which are run by the likes of Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin.

But Maserati have chosen to play to its strengths with a brand new Master Italian Lifestyle Experience – a five star “lifestyle” programme combining circuit and road driving, together with a tour of one of the most emblematic Italian cities: Florence.

The courses which start on April 24 with a 2-day ‘Master GT’ course, and run until May 30 with the new ‘Master Italian Lifestyle Experience’ course are run in collaboration with Dorado, the International Driving Centre founded by former F1 driver Andrea de Adamich.

These one-of-a-kind events, offered by Maserati, blend together all the most representative elements of Italy: art, fashion, luxury, bespoke craftsmanship and of course, racing performance.

Courses are open to all Maserati enthusiasts and take place at the Autodromo Riccardo Paletti in Varano de’ Melegari, approximately 20 km from Parma. The Riccardo Paletti circuit is an ideal venue to develop a driver’s skills, combining varied track characteristics with professional services to ensure the maximum safety of its guests.
