mercedes amg driving academy 2009 001
If you're a track hound or at all interested in becoming one, you could do a lot worse than starting with a driving school. Mercedes-Benz's AMG Driving Academy is a good example, with access to cars you won't find anywhere else. Today, we have a more in-depth video to go along with the teaser we brought you earlier in the week.
You'll find more racing-oriented schools elsewhere, but if you're more into driving road cars fast than pretending you're the next Schumacher, the manufacturer-backed programs (Porsche and Corvette offer them as well) are better bets. This video gives you a taste of what you can expect. You can also scratch the racing itch with a bit of SLS AMG GT3 driving, if you're qualified--and then see what the competition is like with Porsche's new GT3 Cup Experience.
