Huracans Pulling Drift Battles at Lamborghini’s Winter Academy. Dear Santa...

Last month saw the motorsport world being swept off its feet by a scene coming from drifting, a discipline many refused to call a sport until recently. We’re referring to the drift battle between a Lamborghini Murcielago and a Lexus LFA.
As we’ve seen during the Japanese event that hosted the fight between the two drift-modded supercars, things in the sideways universe don’t get more exquisite than that. Or do they?

It seems Lamborghini has a thing or two to say about the claim above, especially since its Winter Accademia (Italians don’t spell “academy” all that differently from us, do they?) includes such drift battles.

Since the people behind the wheel of Huracans and Aventadors used for the automaker’s low grip training program are customers, don’t expect the inches-apart dogfights we see in the competition world.

Still, as you’ll be able to see in the video below, which is a piece of unofficial footage, two Huracans sliding relatively close to each other make for a memorable experience.

If you wish to become educated in taming Raging Bulls on snow and ice, you’ll have to travel to Livigno, a small town in the proximity of the Swiss-Italian border. The town was famous for its skiing possibilities long before Sant’Agata Bolognese settlers arrived, so you'll also be able to slide without the car, if that's what you're looking for.

For the 2016 season, Lamborghini lets you play with the Huracan Coupe, the Aventador Coupe and Roadster, as well as the Superveloce incarnation of the V12 supercar. When we’re dealing with a vehicle that can lap the Nurburgring in under seven minutes (read: just three seconds behind the Porsche 918 Spyder), that sounds like quite a privilege.

As long as you’re prepared to pay the entry fee, the company will provide naturally aspirated tuition, whether you’re a Lamborghini owner or not. All in the name of driving science, of course.
