Ford has announced that owners of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor have an opportunity to get exclusive training from Ford Performance Racing School instructors about the features that make the 2017 Ford Raptor the best performing Raptor yet.
Raptor Assault, what Ford is deeming this academy, will be free of charge for initial owners of the new 2017 Ford Raptor, and will be challenge drivers both in the classroom and in the off-road terrain in the desert of Utah. The program adds the popular GT350 Track Attack, ST Octane Academy and recently announced RS Adrenaline Academy, and builds on previous off-road courses including tire testing and training for owners of previous generation Raptors.
Owners will be immersed in performance and handling characteristics of Ford’s high-performance off-road truck. From the classroom, owners will explore the 2017 Ford Raptor’s industry leading features, followed up by extensive off-road course time testing the limits of the truck’s capabilities over challenging desert terrain. With a focus on the 2017 Ford Raptor’s dynamic driving modes, owners can expect to be rock crawling, climbing, side-hilling, descending, and doing Baja runs to test out the 2017 Raptor’s features. The goal for the Raptor Assault course is is for F-150 Raptor owners to understand the performance capabilities of their new trucks and improve driving skills.
The off-road terrain near Ford Performance Racing School offers a diversity of challenges and is perfectly suited to showcase the high-performance capabilities of Raptor. The Ford Performance owner programs that have come before are a strong indication that this experience will be outstanding – a big hit with Raptor owners.
Safety gear and F-150 Raptor trucks will be provided for all participants. Owners will be responsible for their travel and hotel costs, but all other program features, including breakfast and lunch, are covered once participants arrive at the school.
