Ford Octane Academy Driving School Returning for 2016

Ford ST shoppers can look forward to the return of the Ford Octane Academy driving school.

Those purchasing a Ford Focus or Fiesta ST will be eligible to attend the American automaker’s Octane Academy driving school, which is hosted alongside the GT350 Track Attack at the Utah Motorsports Campus. The Ford Octane Academy driving school aims to introduce ST owners on how to maximize their new sports cars and the cost of the driving school is already included in the vehicle. Owners will still have to pay for transportation to the event and lodging in Utah.

The experience includes visiting Ken Block’s Hoonigan Racing headquarters in Park City, Utah, skidding workshops, forward and reverse 180s, stunt parking, autocross practice and competition against other classmates. Also included are three on-track sessions.

If you want an extra day on the track behind the wheel of a Ford Mustang GT as well as a vehicle-dynamics class that teaches racing fundamentals, Ford offers an additional upgrade package for $1,495.

Program dates for this year’s Ford Octane Academy driving school are available from April through October.
