If you love fast cars and want to learn how to drive them, we have great news for you as Lamborghini has just announced that it will host the first-ever North American performance driving school from September 14-17, at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

As expected, this year’s Lamborghini Accademia will focus on the brand new Huracan LP 610-4. Only 24 participants will be able to receive a certificate form Lamborghini Squadra Corse after completing morning exercises such as slalom, acceleration, braking, drifting and section training at Laguna Seca’s key corners such as the famous Corkscrew.

In the afternoon, the participants will be able to learn full-course lapping. In October, the Lamborghini Accademia returns to Hockenheim, Germany on October 1-2. The Winter Accademia event dates for the 2014-2015 season will be announced shortly.

For those who don’t know, the new Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 is powered by a 5.2-liter V10 engine that delivers 610 hp (448 kW) at 8,250 rpm and 560 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.

As a result, the Lamborghini Huracan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.9 seconds and offers a top speed in excess of 320 km/h or 200 mph.
