TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH — The Ford Racing School, based at Miller Motorsports Park, has released its schedule for the 2014 season.
For 2014, the Ford Racing School, the Official Driving School of the National Auto Sport Association (NASA), will offer nine two-day schools.
The two-day Ford Racing School is ideal for those who want to sharpen their high-performance driving skills or take the first step towards competitive racing. Highly-focused classroom sessions are combined with behind-the-wheel exercises to give you the basics of driving quickly and safely. Training subjects include basic vehicle dynamics, proper posture, heel/toe braking technique, proper racing line identification and driving in traffic. Students will drive a track-prepped Mustang GT and receive personalized instruction from our staff of professional instructors, all of whom have extensive racing experience in such diverse racing series as the FIA World Endurance Championship, American Le Mans Series, Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, SCCA Pro Racing Pirelli World Challenge, IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama, NASCAR and NHRA, as well as legendary events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Baja 1000.
In conjunction with the announcement of the 2014 schedule, the Ford Racing School is also launching a new, dedicated, state-of-the-art website, www.FordRacingSchool.com. Previously housed within Miller Motorsports Park's website, the new site utilizes "Responsive Web Design Technology," which delivers an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices from smartphones and tablets to laptops and desktop computers. An elegant, minimalist style and clean typeface not only makes information easier to find and read, but allows web pages to load faster on mobile devices.
"We are very excited to announce our 2014 dates for the Ford Racing School," said Cindi Lux, director of the Ford Racing School. "We have trained hundreds of drivers since the school began in 2007, many of whom are now professional racing drivers and all of whom are putting their new high-performance driving skills to use on public roads and racetracks around the country. Whether you own a high-performance car and want to maximize your driving skills, if you want to start a racing career or you're an experienced racer who wants to brush up on your technique, we can help you realize your goals. Our new website makes it easy for anyone to get information or sign up for one of our programs."
The dates for 2014 are as follows:
March 20-21 April 24-25 May 22-23 June 26-27 July 16-17 August 14-15 September 9-10 September 25-26 October 16-17
