Jaguar has announced its 2013 schedule for its Performance Driving Academy, which will make five stops throughout the U.S. this year.

Promising one-on-one time with professional drivers and substantial on-track time, the Jaguar Performance Driving Academy will offer basic and advanced courses to Jaguar owners and racing enthusiasts. Customers will be able to get behind the wheel of the XFR, XKR, and XJ Supersport in a full-day driving curriculum.

The advanced course builds on the basic course by adding maximum braking exercises, individual corner practice, skidpad manuevers, handling oval, and low-speed handling course.

The Jaguar Performance Driving Academy will make its first stop on February 14 through 17 at Circuit of the Americas in Texas, before it heads off to Las Vegas Motor Speedway on April 24 through 28.
