The right program for every driving ability
At the AMG Winter Experience, drivers of all levels of experience get their money's worth - from beginners to advanced drivers to experienced experts: the AMG Winter Experience offers the right program for every AMG fan. The "Basic" training level is ideal for beginners. In the individual formats, such as the “Discover” event format, the focus is on driving safety and getting to know Mercedes-AMG vehicles. The "Advanced" training level serves as advanced training. Here the driver can expand the fundamentals of driving physics that he has already learned. In addition, the handling of high-performance vehicles in challenging situations and with the Mercedes-AMG driver assistance and performance systems is deepened.
As part of the “Advanced Week”, participants have five days to improve their driving skills. For the “Pro” training level, sufficient prior experience from an AMG advanced training course or a comparable training course is a prerequisite. In the event format “Pro Week”, personal driving skills can be improved in a targeted manner through increased individual support in small groups. The “Masters” training level is ideal for very experienced drivers. In intensive technical discussions with experienced racing drivers on and off the training ground, they expand their knowledge and test driving in the absolute limit range in the individual format "Pro Plus".
As a special highlight, exciting competitions such as a "drift competition" are on the program at selected events. The participants can prove how safely they can drift on the ice track. In the “Race of Champs” competition, the best drivers from various preliminary rounds compete against each other and fight for victory. In some training formats, a spectacular drive in the AMG Ice Taxi complements the experience. With maximum traction and power, the AMG Ice Taxi with its special studded tires shows what is possible under challenging conditions.
