The 2017 Ford Raptor is a performance is very good deal. You’re not only getting 450 horsepower to make you rocketing through traffic, but there’s enough suspension travel to also run the desert at extra-legal speeds— of course, if there would be speed limits in the middle of the desert. But, considering that not everyone has the skill for piloting a machine with so high capabilities, Ford is launching the new Raptor Assault program at its Ford Performance Racing School in Utah.

They are adding to Ford’s successful GT350 Track Attack, ST Octane Academy, and RS Adrenaline Academy. Raptor Assault is taking it’s part at the Utah Motorsports Campus — the same location where Ford’s previous Raptor training was. The program is searching for the Raptor’s features through classroom sessions, rock crawling, side-hilling, time trials, Baja-style runs,and hill descent and braking procedures.
“The all-new F-150 Raptor was designed to be the ultimate, no-compromise off-road pickup with its cutting edge internal bypass suspension, six-mode Terrain Management System and 450 horsepower EcoBoost engine with massive amounts of torque,” said Henry Ford III. “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 the Raptor.”
The Ford Performance Racing School will ensure buyers with school Raptors from accidentally ruining their personal cars, so as safety gear like for example helmets and gloves. New Raptor owners will have free school, but travel and hotel costs will be buyers responsability. Buyers can also choose second day of driving performance with Ford’s Mustang GT, but that will be as well in additional cost .
“We’re looking forward to the excitement, training and thrills Raptor Assault will deliver to owners of the 2017 truck,” said Dan McKeever, president of Ford’s Performance Racing School. “The new Raptor is an incredible truck, and our facility is the perfect venue to demonstrate just what it can do off-road.” Those who wish for participating in Raptor Assault program can go and check Raptorassault.com and register for the some future classes.
