The School, which sees in Enzo and Paolo Coloni its promoters, proposes personalized theoretical driving courses, with the possibility to use a sophisticated simulator. Courses are completed in the track on the nearby Magione Circuit (Perugia-Italy) with the possibility to improve the driving style at the wheel of single seaters F.4 (for youngsat entry level) and more powerful 550 hp Auto GP cars (for more experienced drivers), on which it is now possible also use new carbon brakes produced by Brembo.

The “Scuola Piloti Coloni Motorsport” started collaborating with Rasheed Khan’s Momentum Motorsport Indian team, which brought 15-year-old Arya Singh driver to Umbria, who in the end of June at Magione drove a F.4. There are other Indian drivers waited in Passignano, as well as a Frenchman and an Italian. On the occasion, in Magione was present also Mahaveer Raghunathan, another Indian driver.

Raghunathan tested the new Brembo carbon brakes, which he will use on his Auto GP from the upcoming Boss GP races.

Carbon brakes on Auto GP cars
The Auto GP, a Lola single seater car with a 550 hp Gibson Technology engine, can now also mount Brembo’s carbon brakes. There are obvious improvements, both in terms of weight reduction and braking efficiency. This modification will allow young drivers who want to have experience with carbon brake braking, with low costs, to learn the braking type they will find in the higher categories.
