Training venue: the BMW and MINI Driving Academy.

A former airport near Maisach, about 30 kilometres west of Munich, has been home to the Driving Academy since September 2012. The location, where military and subsequently civil aircraft took off in the past, is now home to one of the largest road-safety training sites in Southern Germany – the ultimate in driver training for passionate petrol heads over a total area of 130 hectares. This is where both experienced drivers and novices learn how it feels to have total control of a car in extreme and dangerous situations.
