The first Motor Sport Academy in the world
Giancarlo Fisichella is delighted to announce today that, together with Enrico Zanarini and his management team, he is launching the Fisichella Motor Sport Academy - the first academy in the world totally dedicated to motor sport.
The new school will be the prominent part of a new and advanced architecture project, the Fisichella Motor Sport Technopole, designed by DAA+Nema Architecture. The Academy, located inside the FMS technopole in an area inside the Vallelunga circuit near Rome, includes a series of activities linked to Fisichella's motor racing success and it has been created to satisfy the many requests from individuals who seek a career in the world of motor sport.
Through a series of courses, with lectures by the Academy staff and by some of the biggest names of the sport, FMS Academy will teach its students how to become a professional in many motor racing fields. The lessons will help students to become expert mechanics or telemetrists, race engineers or aerodynamicists, technical directors or team managers. A specialized series of courses will also be aimed at people with an ambition to work closely with drivers, such as managers or personal trainers and everyone else who works behind the scenes, such as commercial executives, new business officers, public relations officers and catering managers.
At the end of the courses, all students will receive a diploma of merit and lists will be available to all teams and structures who seek new staff for their new or current motor racing ventures.
FMS Academy is just one part of the new Fisichella Motor Sport Technopole, an innovative structure which will use solar panels and advanced technology to make the building completely bio-compatible. FMST also includes FMShape, a new personal training centre open to the academy's students, drivers and the general public, FMStory, a permanent museum with race cars and images of Giancarlo Fisichella's career, FMShopping, a shopping arcade with sports shops and a bio-restaurant and FMSport, the headquarters of Fisichella Motor Sport's current and future motor racing teams.
