Ford Wants Focus RS Owners To Drive The Way They Should

Driving School

Drift Mode fails should become a thing of the past.

Driver training courses seem to be a trend that's slowly gathering pace as of late. Dodge already has a system in place at the Bondurant Racing School, and we recently discovered that Fiat is also (and perhaps unsurprisingly, considering it's a stablemate of Dodge in the FCA Group) doing the same thing at the exact same location for the folks who buy the Abarth iterations of the 500 and 124. And now we know Ford will also be offering a similar program for owners of the Focus RS hot hatchback.

Located at the Ford Performance Racing School in Utah, a one-day 'RS Adrenaline Academy' training course is being offered to those who bought a brand new 2016 or 2017 Ford Focus RS. Those who wish to be enrolled in the driver training school will have to pay for their own travel and (if necessary) accommodation, though Ford offers the course itself for free for Focus RS owners. And a fair bit is covered in the one-day course: along with teaching the students on how to brake, accelerate and change gears, Ford instructors will also run the RS owners through each of the car's four driving modes. Which, yes, involves a tutorial on how to ace the 'Drift Mode'.

If that weren't enough, Ford is also offering interested RS owners the chance to have a similar one-day course at a later date in a Ford Mustang. The Blue Oval won't cover the costs for this particular training lesson, though, and we don't know how much it'll set you back as Ford hasn't revealed prices yet. In fact, we don't know when the 'RS Adrenaline Academy' will begin in earnest, as Ford has only just opened the registration process. For those of you who are interested in the scheme, you can find out more and register your interest at the website.
