WORLD LEADER IN ICE DRIVING - THE VERY BEST
This slightly madcap idea was made real by Eric GALLARDO in 2005 from a notion already formed in 1989 whilst teaching ice driving to professional test drivers which he did until 1997.
During the winter of 2006, Eric conducted the first Laponie Ice Driving session. In 2009 the first significant investment was made in a set of private circuits equipped with a scale replica of the Paul Ricard Formula 1 circuit (a world first).
Automobile Engineer (ESTACA), Vehicle Dynamics expert, authorized by Lotus Engineering to train Professional Test Drivers (chassis specialist), former No.1 Test Driver of the European branch of the first World Car Assemblers, Vice-Chairman France GT (1998), founder of the Cap MAITRISE driving school in 1999, chosen by the French Federation of Car Sports for the “initial session” of 20 professional driving instructors- Eric Gallardo has built his entire professional career around his passion- the car.
