The 2014 Abarth Track Experience Gears Up For Another Round
Total Articles: 3
Throughout the year, drivers who aren't content with the low-octane, daily commute or the posted speed limit rev their proverbial engines for a chance to gain one-on-one professional experience from top drivers across the country. That's right; it's time to gear up for another round with the 2014 FIAT Abarth Track Experience.
The day-long event that runs rain or shine is aimed at FIAT owners who are looking to get the most out of their Abarth vehicles and are itching to put some serious rubber to the track. Throughout the day, drivers will have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on driving instructions that will give them the skills and confidence needed to improve their driving at home, on the track and on the strip.
Following a short lesson in the classroom, drivers will take command of a FIAT 500 Abarth that have been supplied and fine-tuned specifically for the Track Experience. After learning some basic driving skills spanning from "Driving 101" and "How to Adjust the Seat" to "How to steer" and "When to Brake", drivers will quickly move up to more advanced competitive event modules.
First and foremost, drivers will take to the Autocross where they'll race against the electronic clock that is accurate up to 1/1,000th of a second. More than just speed, the Autocross module is about learning how to be in maximum control of the car in both acceleration as well as braking. Adding to the realism of the track are potential penalties that will ding your lap time. With instructions before the driver hits the gas and feedback as the engine cools, the Autocross is where the novice start their journey towards the professional.
After the driver has gotten a feel for the Abarth in top-gear, they'll move up to the Head-to-Head challenge where they will face off against other drivers. Putting their lessons to use, both drivers will see who can complete a lap the fastest with the least amount of penalties. Observing drivers will get to enjoy the show while others compete, as well, as the racing staff will provide full color commentary for all races.
Next up, the drivers will take on Driving Dynamics where they'll get an introductory lesson to actual racecourse driving. The lesson will involve "chalk talk" from a professional Abarth driver who will speak on the theories behind racing. The session concludes with the driver taking the wheel while a professional Abarth driver rides shotgun. Driving Dynamics doesn't have any a timer and there are no competing racers; it's time for the driver to learn the nitty-gritty fine details like how to handle blazing straightaways, tight corners, and how to otherwise handle each of the one-hundred-and-sixty horses residing under the FIAT's hood.
The final module drivers will take part in is the Abarth Performance Drive. This is where each driver gets to put his or her new skills up against the other drivers one last time. A time-trial consisting of three practice laps and leading up to three timed ones, the Performance Drive is where drivers get to show it all off, winner take all.
For those looking for a genuine racetrack experience, the 2014 FIAT Abarth Track Experience concludes with drivers riding shotgun as the professionals push the cars to their technical limits, showcasing just what the Abarth can handle.
FIAT Abarth owners looking for the best plan their weekend around events like this, but the Track Experience doesn't stop with drivers. For non-drivers, there's plenty to do as well. From visiting the driving modules and enjoying the catered breakfast and lunch to participating in the opening and closing ceremonies, there's something to do for everyone.
