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.

http://www.bondurant.com/
http://www.faasst.com/
http://www.jimrussellusa.com/programs/driving-schools
http://www.springmountainmotorsports...riving-schools

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!
