Fiat Announces 2015 Abarth Expanded Track Experience Program

The Fiat 500 Abarth is a neat little runabout to dart with in urban areas. Of course, some owners would like to make more of it and go past the speed limit for a bit more thrill. But that’s a thing to do on a track, using safety equipment and proper driving techniques. This is where the Abarth Track Experience comes to the scene and Fiat just announced an expansion for the 2015 edition.

The Abarth Track Experience allows owners to take it up a few notches and explore the buffed 500’s limits in a controlled environment at no additional costs. The fees for such events is already included in the cost of each car you get from a dealership, so you got no excuse for not showing up and join the fun.

Where do I sign?

All you need to do is show up at the certain track, grab one of Fiat Abarth’s fleet cars and hone your skills in one of the offered driving modules - autocross, head-to-head challenge, driving dynamics and performance drive. At the end of the day, you get to ride shotgun with a professional behind the wheel to show you how it’s done if you want.

The 2015 Abarth Track Experience will begin February 16th at the renowned Laguna Seca track in California, following to roll in other locations such as Ft. Worth, Texas; Fontana, Calif.; Angleton, Texas; Daytona Beach, Fla.; Englishtown, N.J.; Brooklyn, Mich.; and Joliet, Ill.

Fear about driving a manual transmission to the limit? Worry not, as the 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth can now be had with a track-tuned 6-speed automatic transmission, reinforced with extra clutch plates and more robust materials to better use the 157 hp / 183 lb-ft the 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine cranks.
