AMG® Driving Academy Offer
About the AMG® Driving Academy
AMG® Driving Academy is a world renowned driver training program that arrived to the United States in 2009, continuing the global expansion of the AMG® Driving Academy founded by AMG® in Affalterbach, Germany and operated throughout Europe. The factory in Affalterbach is where each AMG® engine is manufactured with the most stringent quality standards that maintain the AMG® philosophy and practice of “one man, one engine.”
The U.S. AMG® Driving Academy brings the program to some of the most exciting racetracks in America and provides hands-on lessons in dynamic performance driving: exercises in threshold braking, cornering and line theory, skid control and recovery, and high speed sector training and track driving, all designed to make you a safer, better driver. The curriculum builds on driver skills with high-performance dynamics training, extensive data gathering and in-depth driving analysis – and of course, many high speed laps around the track.
