Lamborghini Teases Track Accademia 2015: Video
Here’s the thing: you can buy speed. Anyone with an extra six-figures burning a hole in his pocket can pick up a supercar, drive it to the track, and smoke pretty much everyone in attendance. Talent, on the other hand, is much harder to come by. Talent takes dedication, work, and no small degree of passion. Money can’t buy talent – but it sure doesn’t hurt.
Enter Lamborghini’s Accademia Programs. For about 3,750 euros ($4,204), anyone with a penchant for adrenaline can climb behind the wheel of a 2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce to get hands-on experience and instruction on what it takes to use a supercar to its fullest potential. The program includes car control exercises, track section training, individual coaching, telemetry and video analysis, and full-circuit lapping. No previous experience is required.
Lambo hosts Track Accademia events at famous race tracks all over the world, including Imola, Hockenheim, and Laguna Seca. Participants can sign up for the entry-level single-day “Intensivo” program or the more extensive “Avanzato” two-day program.
Check out the above-featured video to see what’s in store. If it were my money, I’d look into the Skip Barber Three Day Racing school, which doesn’t come with seat time in a Lambo, but does offer more time on track at a cheaper price (depending on your venue of choice).
