There's a Ford Racing High Performance Driving School

There are lots of commercial outfits, somewhat dependent on where you live, often specializing in particular makes of car.

And then there are places that teach you about various sorts of special purpose race cars (dragsters, Formula, karts, etc., as opposed to street cars).
Awesome! Thanks for all the info!

Yeah I just did some more research on the event and it was apparently only right before the car came out. Bummer. Anyone know of any other type of "performance" driving schools? I know BMW has an owners club where they take you to a closed course and teach you things. I consider myself a good driver but I've never been but through the paces like one of these courses would teach me. You can never have too much car control...

It's basically a timed lapped event where you go out and try to get the best time on the course in your ST. I assume they teach you a thing or two about the cars performance too. If anyone has heard of this and has more info it would be appreciated.
