Ford Focus ST Performance Academy

Finally! After a seemingly endless drought where free manufacturer driving events were either killed by the economy or very private, exclusive and narrowly targeted comes word of a seemingly open and public one (although, as always, these are first come-first served). I'm talking about the Ford Focus ST Performance Academy for Ford's new hot hatch. As WardsAuto describes it, "The driving events will take place on Saturdays in June, July and August in each market on closed courses. They will feature a fleet of Focus STs for professional performance driver training, timed autocross competition and pre-event racing instruction".

Here's the precise schedule:

Saturday 30 June - IZOD Center in New York

Saturday 14 July - FedEx Field in Washington, D.C.

Saturday 21 July - Gillette Stadium in Boston

Saturday 4 August - Candlestick Park in San Francisco

Saturday 11 August - Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles

To register: Focus ST Performance Academy

And, if you're bummed out like I am that this event isn't coming to your area, here's a link to lobby for a stop near you:

No Detroit location? Really? Fail.

The irrational part of me loves to think that my favorite vices (mnt dew, red meat and beer) have helped me build a super brain.
