How do you sign up for the ford performance school? I Took delivery today on my 2020 gt500 and there's no paperwork that explains this.

YES! The lady you will speak with on the phone is Jill. All you need is the car in your possession. I spent all day there doing this yesterday. @TomLake and @fletchffletch were there and will attest this is an absolute MUST! 🤟🤟

The day was a bit different from the first time I went in May (for the better). I hope to have a video up of the day sometime in the next week or two. I have a crap ton of footage to work through and edit.

Thank you sir.

Many of the instructors were talking about my videos. One said that the first video I made really help "sell the school." Apparently they have been sending links to prospective students. I also had a student stop me in the hall when he heard me talk (I was wearing a mask). He said he recognized my voice and has been enjoying my videos.

When I made the video of the first time I attended the event, I was an editing white belt. I now am maybe a brown belt. Hopefully version 2.0 is mo-betta! I have days of editing ahead of me...

The school is Free to you, the owner. To attend, the purchase of the car must be final and you have taken delivery. A guest is allowed for a cost of $179. You can find the details at the site at this link: Info / Register – GT500 Track Attack
As you can see from @Goose17 first visit at the school, it is a blast.

The school is free, but there are a couple up-charges I recommend. I bought the video package and the insurance coverage both times. If you wreck one of their cars, the insurance limits your liability and the video package records in car and out front. Of course getting there and lodging + rental car is all on you as well.

I have not. I believe the second day is in the school’s white 5.0 fleet. The serious drop in power will make you focus on different aspects of racing, but I suspect it will be a bit of a letdown coming off a full day in the beast!

I was Tim's ( @Goose17 ) guest and it was an awesome experience! I'd highly recommend it to anyone. Definitely do not waste the opportunity to take a guest -- take a relative, invite a friend, invite a fellow fordgt500 forum member!!! For $179 they will have a grand time, learn a few things, can help take tons of pics and videos, etc. to name a few things -- not to mention get the ride of their life at the end of the day w/ the professional driver!!!!!! :p:p:p

You are going to have a blast!

Make sure to watch the video I just posted today. Look at the beginning of the drag race part regarding discussion on the lights/launching. Also watch the full lap section on the Roval to learn the track. Holler if you have any questions.
