Miller Motorsports near Park City, Utah is no stranger to Ford driver training, and now you can go wild in the new Ford ST models there for free. That’s right, the ST Octane Academy offers a free day of training for Ford Fiesta ST and Focus ST Hatchback owners.
As long as you take care of your travel to Utah, you get to spend an entire day with professional racers as instructors. To get started, a quick classroom session briefs you on safety and outlines the track as well as the day’s program. After that students are quickly placed in bright red Fiestas and maize yellow Focuses to learn the ins and outs of car control.
Have you always wanted to drive like they do in the movies? The next session would be your favorite! You get to go through a stunt-man-like exercise that allows you to drive in reverse and then throw the car into a 180 degree spin. We’re not sure about you, but this sounds pretty awesome to us! An autocross course is the next adventure before heading to lunch.
They definitely save the best for last at the Octane Academy. Students get to hit the big boy race track in their Ford ST of choice. After getting familiar with the track you get to take some laps with your pro riding shotgun to give you tips. A few laps of that and you’re off on your own! Finally, students get to ride along as the pros show them how it’s done.
Would you head to Utah in your Ford ST to take advantage of this free day of driving school? Stop by Gurley Motor Company and take one for a test drive and get on your way to racing with the pros!
