Pretty much everyone in this world has a different idea about a dream job; but everyone who visits TopSpeed probably dreamed about being “racecar driver” some day. Many of us still have that wish.
But racing is not a practical career ambition for most, so what to do?
Being a Transporter like Jason Statham might be fun, but the risk of death from a drive-by shooting is quite high. So what is a real-life supercar and track junky left to envision?
Luckily, there are many other options for how to get paid for driving fast. At least in Italy at the country’s famed supercar brands.
Consistency and feedback on every aspect is mandatory, and hard to do. It also really helps if you grew up within walking distance of the Ferrari or Lambo compounds in Italy.
While most of us will only dream about this, Lamborghini’s test driver Giorgio Sanna gives us a day in his life.
Sanna is Lamborghini’s chief R&D and motorsport test driver, so nothing ships without his settings and preferences applied to production cars. He must be quite busy with the Cabrera still under heavy wraps.
For a peek behind the curtain at one of the world’s coolest jobs, Lamborghini’s driver profile video is a great piece. It shows his best talents as well as highlighting all the hard work that goes along with burning rubber professionally.
