The 4.5-mile circuit is claimed to be the longest in North America, with 23 turns and several potential configurations.
Participants will start in the classroom before heading to the track. Instructors will cover a broad range of topics, from shifting to cornering, according to Motor Trend. Part of the day will be dedicated to the Focus RS' specialized drive settings, including the Drift Mode that is prominently featured in many of Ford's advertisements.
The first day will be free for owners of the 2016 and 2017 RS, though attendees must find their own way to the track. They can stick around and pay extra for a second day of training, providing track time with a Mustang GT.
The program could help attract more buyers to the high-performance hatchback, while potentially avoiding a few Cars and Coffee mishaps.
