Master Maserati

Autodromo di Varano

There cannot be a Maserati driver in the world who hasn’t wondered what it must be like to push the rev counter into the red right up through the gears, to take the racing line through a corner and to test their car’s braking capabilities to the limit. The Maserati Driving Experience answers all these questions and more through a series of professionally- led courses for those with a desire to discover the performance potential of the Maserati range in its natural environment: the racetrack.


Thanks to the recent introduction of ultra-powerful Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Levante, both powered by 580 HP turbocharged V8 engines plus the launch of the sensational MC20 supercar, the Maserati Driving courses have become even more dynamic and thrilling. All three cars ensure that participants enjoy an adrenaline-pumping, fun event without equal.

Length: 2,350 m | Total turns: 14 | Left-hand turns: 8 | Right-hand turns: 6
Max width: 12 m | Min width: 10 m | Direction: anticlockwise

The Varano de’ Melegari circuit, located near Parma in Italy, is the home of the Master Maserati Driving Experience. The facility has a very technical and demanding layout, with its 14 turns covering almost all types of cornering. The sequences of low and medium speed bends, straights, chicanes and the challenging Parabolica hairpin are perfect for learning the basics of motor racing technique: visual reference points, braking zones, racing lines, corner exit speeds, understeer, oversteer and much, much more.

The facilities conform to the highest safety standards and the track is certified by FIA for official racing competition. 


Anyone who comes to Varano de Melegari has to be passionate about Maserati – a fact that applies not only to our clients but our instructors, as well. Their commitment to the marque is total and their aim is to deliver only the best. The courses are managed by drivers experienced at international level in elite motor sports series including single seater competitions, GT cars and rally international championships.

The close-knit, professional and highly motivated team is led by motor racing legend, Andrea de Adamich:

“Our instructors are all from the track or rallying, as only true competitors can teach how to correctly and safely exploit such fast and powerful cars”.
