Saturday, June 30th 2013 Ford hosted a 2013 Focus ST Performance Academy Event at the Izod Center in NJ. Participants got to test drive and experience the all-new 2013 Ford Focus ST before anyone else.
Approximately six 2013 Ford Focus ST models were available for test drives. With instructors nearby, drivers hit max speeds to experience the feel of the new 2013 Ford Focus ST.
Drivers were permitted to test-drive alone, the 2013 Focus ST event had two unique driving courses:
Warm-up Track: The practice track was used so participants could become more familiar with the drive of the 2013 Focus ST – participants were given two warm-up laps.
Test Track: The Test Track was set up Autocross style with a lap time system in place. Drivers were able to experience the performance and speed capabilities of a 2013 Focus ST by driving another warm-up lap and two timed laps.
