If you’re from EU, all you need is a normal legal driving licence and you would be able to test drive cars quite easily. When you are having EU driving license, you are allowed to drive in all the countries in the European Union. The validity of such licences is usually between 10 years to 15 years. This ensures that you do not have to worry about getting it again and again. Thus, if you’re from the European Union you do not have to worry about producing any extra documents in order to test drive the supercars. We can easily arrange the best supercars either on race tracks or on normal city roads in Maranello as per your preference.
3. Minimum age to drive:

As long as, you’re above the legal age, we can arrange the test drive of your favourite supercar quite easily. Also, you need to have a license which has been in existence for at least 3 years in order to be eligible to drive.
4. Location of Test Drive:
All the test drives are conducted in and around Maranello in Italy. Maranello is a town in northern Italy. Maranello is famous for being the birthplace of Ferrari. It is also associated with the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One racing team. Thus, it has a pretty old association with the automobile world. The Ferrari factory has been in Maranello for more than 70 years. Owing to the old association of the town with the automobile world, you would find that there are plenty of racetracks around as well as the normal road’s infrastructure is pretty good as well. Thus, the town is one of the perfect options for you for test driving supercars. Maranello also has a museum for car enthusiasts by the name of Museo Ferrari. Most of the Ferrari cars, as well as other racing cars and various trophies, are displayed in this museum. Thus, there is no other perfect town to try out your hand at driving a supercar than Maranello in Italy.
5. Modena Autodrome:
As we highlighted above, Maranello has a long association with the automobile industry as well as the racing industry. This is another specimen of that relationship. The Modena autodrome is also known as the Aereautodromo di Modena by the locals. It is a race track which originally was built way back in 1950 and then a new one has been built in the outskirt of the town more recently where the drving is taking place nowadays.
The total length of the race track is around 2.4 km. One of the main unique features of this racetrack is that it has a flying strip across the racetrack. This was used by the local flying club. The track was the venue for Modena Grand Prix for F1 as well as F2 racing cars. In all, it hosted 9 different editions of the Modena Grand Prix. The last Grand Prix was held in 1961. Since then, the track has also hosted some other events like: • Sports car racing • Grand touring • Formula Jr • Motorcycle racing Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, it was used by companies like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati as a test track. Their use of the track as a test track was just limited to morning or afternoon session on the weekdays. During the rest of the day, it was used by the inhabitants of the military camp nearby. It was even used for drivers training by the nearby military Institute. The airstrip across the venue was consistently used by the local flying club for flying aerobatics. However, the circuit or the track was later demolished and a public park has been created in its place in the honour of Enzo Ferrari.
A new and modern Autodromo has been built in Marzaglia which is about 20 minutes from Modena by car, as the older track no longer exists. All our track test drives take place here at this address.
Strada Pomposiana n. 255/A
Loc. Marzaglia, 41123 MODENA
