Ferrari Announces Snow Driving School Centered Around FF
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, New Jersey — Ferrari North America announced a few details on its 2012 Winter Driving Experience. The program is a snow-and-ice driving school that will be held in Aspen, Colorado.
The 2012 Winter Driving Experience is based on the similar "Pilota on Ice" driving program in Italy, and is a two-day course that starts this January and runs through the spring. The program has been designed specifically around Ferrari's new FF grand tourer and will surely focus on the car's 4RM all-wheel-drive system and how it handles in those slippery conditions. Ferrari plans on having a fleet of eight FFs in Aspen which participants will use to sample different driving environments on a purpose-built snow-and-ice track. The program will cost enthusiasts $11,300, and the Prancing Horse automaker plans to have 10-12 students per course. That fee includes a three-day, two-night stay at the Little Nell Resort in Aspen as well as two lunches and dinners. Guests can tag along for a fee of $950, which includes meals and a hot lap on the ice track with a pro driver.
