I went. I was probably the worst driver there.

I learned a lot.

Its ok ... the whole point of the program is to initiate new drivers and give them the confidence to continue learning about performance driving (aka buy more sporty cars from Ford)...

When I went to Utah Motorsports / FP school for the GT350 Track attack last year I had never driven on a real track before then now I've done a total of 5 track events, 2 after getting the bug last year and 3 this year, already planning which events I'm going to save for in 2019. Going back to the Mecca of Ford Performance in Tooele again this year after I got my ST only confirmed my growth and what I want to achieve driving wise. The program is 100% priceless marketing value wise and has made me a Ford Perf fan for life.

Same here, had a great time and would highly recommend it to all ST/RS owners.
wasn't able to go the year i bought my car because I was in a cast :(

I've been to Mazda's track school, Dodge's SRT experience, skip barber a long time ago, but I really wanted to try out gymkhana in a focus :p

SRT experience was a blast, trying to autocross in a ram SRT10 was hilarious.
Also, when Mazda let us take *every* mazda vehicle around the autocross course, the minivan was easily the most fun :p

many tires gave their lives that day...

I'm torn about wanting to take advantage of this offer. I'm not nerdy enough to take my nomex suit there but a flight out would need to be cheap enough or I'll probably miss out
Flight, food and lodging for me was around $500. It's definitely worth it.

Seriously, the most fun you will have behind the wheel. What is not to love about beating someone else's car? Really had fun and learned a thing or two about handling.
