The Ford Performance Racing School has been offering a variety of courses since moving to its current home at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina back in 2019, including one- and two-day courses, as well as night-time classes. The school also offers specialized courses like the Ford Mustang Mach 1 Track Attack class for owners, and recently created a heavily-modified Ford Explorer ST to add to its ever-changing fleet as well. Now, the Ford Performance Racing School has also added a new fall date for its one-day program that gives interested customers yet another option in that regard.
Due to high demand, the racing school has added yet another one-day high-performance driving school class at Charlotte Motor Speedway on October 21st, 2022, though there are also still 10 seats remaining (as of this writing) for the same course on September 30th. Those interested in attending one of the school’s two-day courses have a couple of options as well, as there is one seat left for the class taking place on October 29th-30th, as well as 18 seats for the November 13th-14th class.
Both one- and two-day Ford Performance Racing School classes are designed for anyone that wants to hone their high-performance driving skills or even possibly start a career as a race car driver. Participants first learn some key information from highly-trained and experienced instructors in the classroom before heading out on the track to test that new knowledge in a specially-prepared vehicle.
Participants will learn all the fundamentals of track driving, including control, cornering, downshift braking, and various other skills like proper posture and seat position, vehicle dynamics, heel and toe braking techniques, and setting a proper line. Drivers also receive continuous feedback from instructors while out on the track via the car’s onboard communications system, so they can make adjustments on the fly.
Attendees will participate in lead and follow sessions and instructor ride-alongs on the infield road course during day one. On day two, they’ll spend time on the Hairpin Road Course and FPRS Roval track, which offers a 35-foot elevation change from its lowest point to its highest point. Those interested in registering for any upcoming 2022 Ford Performance class can do so by heading over here.
