New Ferrari ice driving course

Ferrari releases details of its new ice driving course, featuring the new FF and lots of snow

Ferrari has released details of an ice driving course it will hold in the USA in 2012.  As much as we might like to think otherwise, not all Ferraris are driven by racing drivers, hardened road testers or experienced driving enthusiasts. And Ferrari has recognised this with the set up of a new Winter Driving Course for American owners. Held in Aspen, Colorado, it’s modelled on the ‘Pilota on Ice’ scheme that was recently available to European Ferrari owners and trialled by our very own Henry Catchpole in 2009.

Prices have not been publicly announced, but – as the European course cost 9600 euros in 2009 – expenditure is likely to be on a par with that of decently-specced supermini, seeing little change from £10,000!
