The goal of the course? Getting comfortable in the epic 488 Challenge race car.

The course takes place at the Thermal Club, just outside Palm Springs, Calif.

It's a private club out in the desert, where you can get yourself a condo and park your trackday toy right there.

The course began with a little skidpad action...

The Ferrari 488 Challenge is an outrageous machine, and if you attend the course, you can drive one, too.

The cost for this kind of treatment? $20,500. Insane? Yes, but if you're a Ferrari owner, consider it money well spent.
