Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador Martin Kaymer acquires racing licence on the Nürburgring

Sep 6, 2016

Congratulations! Martin Kaymer uses the time between tournaments to acquire his national A racing licence with the AMG Driving Academy on the Nürburgring – a #PerfectDrive in every respect.

The two-day course started with a theory module where the two-time winner of the Major tournament was taught the basics and the motor racing reglement. At the beginning of the teaching unit he passed the official theory test for recognised driver licence training.

On the second day he then took a Mercedes-AMG GT S out onto the racetrack. Following a "Car Control" training unit on the helipad near the racetrack, the next training exercise was guided driving on the tight bends of the Nürburgring Grand Prix track with the experienced motorsport expert and instructor Reinhold Renger. The performance data were subsequently analysed before moving onto the ultimate module: free driving on the racetrack.

An official start including driving in a group of cars was also on the agenda – the avowed motorsport fan was absolutely thrilled: "A unique experience – that was pure adrenaline. I am pleased and grateful that my partner Mercedes-Benz enabled me to experience this highlight. And of course I am also a bit proud to now be the official holder of a national A racing licence."

Mercedes-Benz accompanied Martin Kaymer during the whole weekend on the way to his Perfect Drive. For exclusive pictures and videos visit Facebook.com/MercedesBenzGolf , YouTube.com/MercedesBenzTV and Instagram.com/MercedesBenzGolf.
