Default Mercedes-Benz Driving academy to be setup in New Delhi!

Wonderful news for all it seems Mercedes-Benz India will be the official automobile partner for the Indian F1 Race and along with it they will also setup a driving academy, details of which will be out by November and this will help promote motorsports in the country and they expect to start this officially by January 2012.

Wonderful news as I have been into one of these in the USA and believe me the experience is beyond what words describe, cannot wait to go for one soon and being able to drive a SLS on the track would only add to the pleasure.

After United States, Germany and China, India will be the 4th country in the world to get this? Awesome isn't it?

Driving Academy

Also the news about them being the sole official partner for the race, including supply of safety cars etc. which I believe is a part of their FIA contract if I am not wrong?

Best news ever,

P.S : Off topic, but my 1000th post, a true befitting one and that too related to the greatest car maker ever!

Awesome buddy!
Can anyone just walk in? Lets now plan this out for sure.
And I like your double standards about driving a 530 and praising the three pointed star . Lol

There is a Mercedes Benz driving academy in UK too and I have been there and had done some driving on their test tracks.

If you search for MB driving academies they are in lot of countries but its good that India would have one too. Hope its at the same standards as the rest of the world.

Fantastic another first from the Three pointed star. They are indeed very serious about India then! Good to see their efforts and interest.

AVR,
Yes will be open to public and not only mercedes customers, all pricing etc. Will be known in due time, but I assume it should be aggressive what I am more keen on is to know what vehicles will they have?

Lol and no double standards, heart will always be with mercedes but brains with bmw esp. The 5 and their indian management and dealers.

Regards,
