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. 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. The classes offered by the Ford Performance Racing School have changed quite a bit in recent years, but those wishing to get one in before the end of the year only have a few chances left to do so.

FoMoCo has announced that the very last Ford Performance Racing School dates for this year are September 30th, October 21st, and November 13th-14th, giving interested parties a few chances to hone their skills before winter sets in.
Over the past year or so, the Ford Performance Racing School has added both nighttime and one-day courses to its itinerary, giving enthusiasts a bit more flexibility in terms of the type of experience they’re looking for. All of these classes are designed for those looking to hone their 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.
From there, participants 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. Those interested in registering for any upcoming 2022 Ford Performance class can do so by heading over here.
