Mercedes-Benz Drive Day

Chamber members were in ‘full gear’ in late June 2017 with a Best Practice event hosted by Mercedes-Benz Australia at Sandown Park.

They were met with an ultra-professionally run event – a sentiment reinforced by the line-up of drivers (many well-known on the professional circuit) who would be our instructors.

Racing personality, Peter Hackett started the session with a presentation on Mercedes-Benz Australia's current and future automotive technology. The presentation explained the benefits of autonomous driving and how such technology is steadily being introduced into the market.

Following this, members were let loose on the track and, in small groups, got behind the wheel for a range of exercises. The rainy conditions only further highlighted the quality and safety of these vehicles, as well as adding to the thrill!
