Ford Performance Racing School is offering initial owners of the automaker’s Focus RS classes in a complimentary clinic on a track in Utah.

Owners of 2016 and 2017 Focus RS models are eligible for free instruction from the school’s teachers, using Utah Motorsports Campus in Grantsville as their classroom.

The school will even supply owners with Focus RSes already fitted with necessary safety equipment and, yes, you can bring guests.

Participant have to shell out for their own hotel and travel, but the entire one-day course is free. An optional second day in a Mustang GT is available for a fee.

“The RS Adrenaline Academy provides owners with a full immersion into the performance and handling characteristics of the Focus RS, in a safe environment with professional instruction,” the company said in a release.

“The extensive course time teaches skills including braking, shifting and cornering techniques, and also focuses on the particular dynamics of the Focus RS, such as the car’s four driving modes.”
