Free Ford Focus RS driving school will stop you from becoming a #DriftModeFail

Ford, perhaps recognizing that a few Focus RS owners have more money than talent, will start offering a free version of its ST Octane Academy for its most powerful hatchback. Think of the RS Adrenaline Academy as a practical guide to not becoming a YouTube laughingstock.

Like the ST Octane Academy, Ford hosts the RS-specific course at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. The one-day course leans heavily towards practical exercises. According to Ford, the day starts with about 30 minutes of classroom time, after which students set out on the track for exercises including, Motor Trend reports, using each of the RS’ four driving modes.

Like a number of driving schools, the Adrenaline Academy operates a fleet of high-performance Foci, each outfitted with appropriate safety equipment. But while the cars and education are free, owners are stuck shouldering some expense – each student is responsible for their own transportation and lodging.

Ford hasn’t announced a schedule for the Adrenaline Academy yet, but since it’s free with every 2016 and 2017 Focus RS, you should go register for updates at the school’s website.
