The Lamborghini Winter Accademia has completed its exclusive 2016 driver training program on snow and ice. From the end of February to the beginning of March, Livigno (Lombardy, Italy) and Aspen (Colorado, USA) hosted 130 participants from 25 different countries almost simultaneously.
Participants were offered two types of course: Intensivo, with a duration of one day and Avanzato (two days). Both programs had the same mission: enabling drivers to improve their skills in low grip conditions and learning to master the power of Lamborghini cars by having fun. All this was achieved through targeted exercises and a progressive approach to driving on snow and ice.

To begin with there was the theory lessons before getting in the cars and attempting slalom and power oversteer tests. The training then focused on track laps – learning, step by step, how to take these cars to the limit.
Lamborghini Accademia provided participants with experienced, qualified international instructors, all coming from the world of motorsport, ranging from Lamborghini GT3 factory drivers to members of the GT3 Junior Program for young and talented drivers.
Lamborghini Winter Accademia, with a fleet sporting a new 2016 livery, fielded the Huracán LP 610-4 and Aventador LP 700-4 models on track, in both coupe and roadster versions as well as the exclusive Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce. I
All the cars were equipped with Pirelli Winter Sottozero tyres, which are studded for increased grip.
In Livigno, Lamborghini Squadra Corse added a Huracán LP 620-2 Super Trofeo racecar to the Lamborghini Accademia fleet. Demonstrating the car’s capabilities was the Lamborghini GT3 factory driver Mirko Bortolotti. The Huracán LP 620-2 was modified for use on the Winter Accademia ice track, including the suspension set-up and rain tyres with studs.
