Ford recently launched the Octane Academy, a new consumer-focused program aimed at a younger, more diverse generation of action sports and race enthusiasts. The Ford Octane Academy will unite ultimate fans with their favorite Ford action sports driver — Ken Block, Brian Deegan, Tanner Foust and Vaughn Gittin Jr. — for the unique opportunity to get behind the wheel and experience the extreme excitement of performance driving.
We’ve been invited to Ford’s Proving Grounds next week to compete against other journalists in the following driving competitions:
- Drifting with 2010 Formula D champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. in a 5.0-liter Mustang
- SuperRally with 2011 Global RallyCross Champion Tanner Foust in a 2012 Ford Focus
- Stage Rally with WRC driver and Gymkhana ace Ken Block in a rally-prepared Ford Fiesta
- Off Road Truck Racing with 2009 Lucas Oil off-road truck champ Brian Deegan in a SVT F-150 Raptor
Be sure you’re following us on Twitter, as we’ll be posting live updates from the event!
This is going to be fun! 😀
