When the aim is that of building a close-knit and coordinated staff team, there is nothing better than an exciting experience, in a stimulating and exclusive environment such as a racetrack, with the best that the car industry can offer at one’s disposal, within the special Team Building programme of the Centre.
Team skills competitions and dynamic exercises, based on cooperation and team success: the energy of challenge, individual contributions, group result.
In order to promote closeness, sense of belonging and spirit of collaboration.
The “standard” agenda of a 1-day Course is as follows:
Agenda, contents and programmes may vary depending on the Client’s needs, the number of participants and the duration of the course.
Throughout the day a team skills competition will be taking place: the scores obtained by individual members in the group of participants will be averaged and then entered into a team scorecard.
There will be cup awards for individual best places, with “desk” cups for all the participants, and an extra single cup for the team placing first.
The times or related coefficients of each will be measured, and an overall average will be calculated.
The dynamic exercises for the 1-DAY Team Building Course are as follows:
Correct driving technique
First session of race track laps, with practical application of the concepts previously presented in theory.
Mechanical system for raising the rear axle of a front-wheel drive vehicle. The device causes over steering at slow speed to be controlled with the correct technique of handling steering wheel and accelerator. This exercise includes a competition, based on technique and driving precision, with a prize awarded to the winner.
Emergency braking while avoiding a sudden obstacle
Simulation of an emergency stop on an artificially wet surface. A luminous device determines the sudden and random need to avoid an obstacle and special photo cells detect the speed of passage in the proximity of the starting point of braking. This exercise includes a team competition.
Track set up on artificially wet surface and with low-grip areas, to experiment and enhance active safety systems present in cars: ABS, ASR, VDC, EBD. The exercise also includes a team competition.
Driving on track with Driver-Instructor on board and telemetry
Cars with onboard telemetry: for measuring performance.
The data acquisition system in the test phase makes it possible to constantly improve the quality of driving: use of accelerator, steering, brakes, speed. The cars and boxes communicate through a sophisticated telemetry system, in which all the indicators are monitored in a detailed analysis of the driving quality of each “Pupil”.
A graph compares the Driver-Instructor’s telemetry analysis to that of the participant’s. A specific software attributes an objective value to the participant’s driving quality’s (CQG: Drive Quality Coefficient). A competition is linked to the CQG results, with prizes awarded at the end of the Course.
With the option of adding:
Driving session at the wheel of an Alfa 8C Competizione.
The dream that becomes reality.
Driving session at the wheel of an Alfa GTV CUP RACING.
Driving a real racing car, in which one must wear a helmet!
Naturally more exercises will be carried out in the 1.5- and 2-day Courses.
