Just thought I would throw this one out there to discuss.

The Octane Academy was a great chance for FoST and FiST owners to learn the true abilities of their platform while being in a controlled environment.

I loved getting out on the track and pushing the FoST and FiST in the curves and straightaways out in Tooele, UT.

Please Ford, let the new RS owners have the opportunity to attend this driving experience.

I was actually thinking about this on the way to work this morning. I really enjoyed my time at TOA but would almost like to see an advanced level class for the RS. Coming from an aggressive driving background, I didn't really learn anything at TOA. This car should be getting a class similar to the Boss Track Attack where you can experiment with drifting and higher level stuff.

I hope they do something for it. Seems like they would. Octane wasn't announced until well after people had cars in their driveways, so I wouldn't expect to know anytime soon.

Absolutely, especially given that I wasn't able to go to the ST Octane Academy. You can be damn sure I wont miss the RS one if they have it. But I think that if they were willing to do something special like that for someone who buys an ST, I'm pretty sure they would be willing to do even more for someone who is willing to buy an RS.

Last I read the Tech Center doesn't have its own track but it is close to Lowes Speedway. Mostly simulations going on for track testing. Would be nice to get some laps at Lowes, but no twisties. Eco Boost Challenge has had small tracks set for the event at the Speedway. Would be interesting.

Octane Academy

No details yet on whether Ford will offer another program similar to The Octane Academy. Hoping to drum up interest and show Ford we want it!

So how many of you would attend if it were offered to new RS owners?

For those that don't know what that is

ST Octane Academy

Oh, and I would definitely be up for going!

Octane Academy

I called 1 (435) 277-7333 in Tooele, UT to ask about STOA yesterday and left a message but have yet to hear anything back.

Looks like STOA is shutdown until April 2016 and may re-open again and run until October 2016 like it has before. Waiting for a response from STOA.

It would be nice since I purchased a FiST at the end of May 2015 and would love to get my daughter in before the year from delivery is up.

My session was June 2014 on Father's Day after the purchase of my FoST at the end of 2013.

Is this a single location thing, or do they travel?
It's in Tooele, UT (west of SLC) and you travel to there.

You also get access to Ken Block's HQ which is in Park City.
