Bugatti Driving School
Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. has recently introduced a unique driving experience for Veyron owners: Feeling the road. Under the watchful eye of official pilot, Pierre-Henri Raphanel, Bugatti customers have the opportunity to learn how to react in critical situations.
Over the course of a whole day and some 300 kilometres, Pierre-Henri explains the Veyron 16.4 – which is supplied for the event by Bugatti – before giving one-to-one training and an introduction to racetrack driving. This exclusive event is held upon request and takes place at the “Anneau du Rhin” track, in Colmar, alongside one of France’s most beautiful wine routes.
The session will entail such dynamic driving exercises as full acceleration, emergency braking, change manoeuvres, and slalom – conducted at the training centre and under various tarmac conditions, also making use of the artificial rain system. The programme then switches to the smaller (1.1 km) of the two racetracks, where drivers can train in private, with exclusive use of the track. After a break, the final – and most exciting – session is a special high-speed drive on the larger track (3 km).
This unforgettable day is rounded off with a debriefing and the presentation of a certificate. Participants may also spend the evening dining with Pierre-Henri, when they will have the possibility to exchange their impressions of the day’s experience. Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. can arrange accommodation in or around Strasbourg, as well as a visit to nearby Molsheim for a tour of the birthplace of the first and today’s Bugattis.
