Ford to Host Five-City Focus ST Performance Academy

Source: Ford | Published: Thu May 31, 2012

For some sport compact fans, the only thing better than driving the new Ford Focus ST is driving the Focus ST on a course with professional instruction and timed autocross hot laps.

That, and more, is what Ford is bringing to driving enthusiasts in New York; Washington, D.C.; Boston; San Francisco and Los Angeles this summer, beginning June 30 in New York.

The events will happen on Saturdays in June, July and August in each market. Events will include 48-foot race trailers, a fleet of Focus STs for training, timed competition, as well as pre-event racing instruction.

Events will open at 9 a.m. and run all day through 6 p.m. Locations and dates are:

New York, IZOD Center, June 30
Washington, D.C., FedEx Field, July 14
Boston, Gillette Stadium, July 21
San Francisco, Candlestick Park, Aug. 4
Los Angeles, Dodgers Stadium, Aug. 11

Pre-registration is live at http://www.drivefocusst.com/. Participation will be limited and will be honored on a first-registered, first-served basis.

"Our fans have expressed extremely high interest in this car, but we know the proof is in the pudding," said Lisa Schoder, Ford Focus ST Marketing manager. "We want ST fans, as well as drivers of competitive vehicles, to be able to taste this car firsthand.

"What better way to do it," she added, "than to bring the car to the people with the help of professional driver instruction on closed courses."

Ford Focus ST

Focus ST, Ford's first global performance car, will integrate a collection of advanced and sport-oriented technologies previously unavailable to North American customers. The combination of these technologies into a refined, yet high-performance sport compact will elevate the category and further cement Focus as the most complete compact car range sold in North America.

Among the more visible options will be the Tangerine Scream metallic color that will be offered exclusively on Focus ST, as well as race-inspired Recaro seats with matching color accents.
