MELBOURNE - Lamborghini Esperienza 2014 @ Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit

MELBOURNE - Lamborghini Esperienza 2014 @ Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit - It was a great privilege to be specially invited by Autosports Lamborghini Sydney to attend this exciting event - The Lamborghini Esperienza 2014 which was held at Phillip Island famously known for their penguins. The last time I visited Phillip Island was to take a look at the penguin parade. This time is entirely for a different experience! This event was highly exclusive as everyone was looking forward to take a look at the new release 2014 Lamborghini Aventador models.

Lamborghini Esperienza 2014 - It was a beautiful day with sunny skies and light winds. I woke up super early at 645am, had a quick hotel buffet breakfast then rushed down to the circuit filled with excitement. I've always wanted to experience the feeling of being in a Lamborghini Aventador and it was like a dream come true :) It was great catching up with Brand Manager - Yvonne Buchreiter from Autosports Lamborghini Sydney as well as meeting Michelle Yow from Singapore who is the Marketing and PR Manager for Southeast Asia & Pacific for Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A.

Upon arrival at the circuit, all guests were greeted by the magnificent sight of 5 beautiful Lamborghini Aventador - 4 Coupes and 1 Roadster (Convertible). Everyone was in awe as the Lamborghini Aventador is a beautiful machine and each car costs approximately AUD800,000 to AUD1 million dollars depending on what options are included. After all, it was really rare to see or find Lamborghini Aventadors in Australia as they are pretty new and very expensive. The VIP guests invited were existing Lamborghini owners or new owners who have placed orders for the newly launched Lamborghini Huracan. It was a huge event and guests have took time to fly down from Sydney, Queensland, Perth, New Zealand etc. to Melbourne just to attend this special event. It was a unique and special event created for guests to experience the 2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 up close and personal.

Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit - Home to massive motor racing events such as the MotoGP, World Superbike Championship, V8 Supercar series etc. this circuit is renowned to motor enthusiasts all around the world. More info at their website

Lamborghini Squadra Course - A specialist team within Lamborghini's R&D department dedicated to motorsport which includes the GT3, the super Trofeo series and a customer driving program. Lamborghini has booked the circuit exclusively for the Lamborghini Esperienza 2014 event where world renowned racing instructors which includes the Lamborghini Factory Drivers from Italy were specially flown down to teach guests unique Lamborghini Driving Experiences. Before we hit the tracks, we attended a presentation and briefing by the highly skilled Lamborghini driving instructors.

While being adventurous is the key ingredient to achieve great driving experiences, safety is of utmost importance and we were advised to put on the cool-looking Lamborghini Helmets and to wear covered shoes. We were advised to keep within the speed limits and not to over steer too much.

Putting on the Lamborghini Helmets 

Driving in the circuit in a Lamborghini Aventador - Believe it or not, the driving instructor Marco specially flown down from Italy was able to drive above the speeds of 240 km/h only using 1 hand on the steering wheel, while his other hand was holding on to the radio to communicate with the guests following behind him. Everyone thought Marco's driving skills were impressive if not incredible! He was extremely calm and professional! Talk about grappling the "beast", Marco was the man!

Marco took the lead in the front in a silver Lamborghini Aventador with 2 other cars who followed closely behind. Guests were invited to take turns to sit beside Marco as a passenger while he provided clear instructions on how to drive on the racing tracks. Other guests were also invited to drive in a Lamborghini Aventador alone in the circuit following Marco's lead.

The Lamborghini Aventador is an incredible super car which is undoubtedly one of the very best in the super car hall of fame. Guests took turns to drive on the tracks to experience the true wonder of the Lamborghini Aventador in full action on the Corsa mode. I love how the interiors felt like an airplane's cockpit with its stunning control console and how the START/STOP button was hidden underneath a red flip cover. With a V12 engine, the Aventador is able to reach 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph) which highlights its aerodynamic strength. It also has an intelligent rear wing which extends only when needed at mid-range to high speeds. I learned that when driving on the racing track, it is important to identify the exact right time to hit the brakes (braking point) when taking sharp corners then to accelerate in a straight line at an angle to speed up (apex point).

Guests were also encouraged and invited to take part in a variety of driving exercises which includes full track laps, lane changing, dynamic handling, slalom, turning sharp bends, driving through obstacle courses which includes wet road surfaces. I was screaming in the car when I was invited to be the passenger while the instructor demonstrated his drifting skills. We were spinning in circles on the wet and slippery road surfaces. Very thrilling and exhilarating indeed! What an experience!

Overall, I was delighted and overwhelmed by the adrenalin-pumping racing experience. Nothing defines power, beauty and speed quite like a Lamborghini Aventador as it is my ultimate dream car. Drivers of the Aventador will be impressed by its superbly powerful engine, accurate steering, excellent stability, overall balance, performance and handling.  I wish to conclude that the Lamborghini Aventador is a masterpiece of sheer magnificence and driving pleasure. Thank you Autosports Lamborghini Sydney for this amazing experience!
