The AMG Driving Academy instructors: Learning from the fastest
If there’s one thing the instructors at the AMG Driving Academyall have in common it’s the ability to drive cars fast. However, a range of other skills are also required to give the participants on the various AMG Training courses an understanding of fast driving and safe car control. Technical know-how is equally as important as teaching skills, the ability to empathise and sporting fitness.
AMG Chief Instructor and active racing driver Reinhold Renger is the man in overall charge of conveying the various elements of the training courses to the participants and accompanying the groups during the multi-day events. The latest addition to his team is Bernd Schneider: with his five DTM titles and another in the ITC and FIA GT Championship, the 44-year-old is one of the most successful German race drivers of all time. The AMG Driving Academy also includes former DTM driver Thomas Jäger, plus racing drivers and instructors Hari Proczyk, Roland Rehfeld, Bernd Mayländer (also the current Formula One Safety Car driver), Dieter Glemser, Ruben Zeltner, Klaus Graf and Peter Ebner.
