If you’re a fan of Ford motorsports, the chance to learn performance driving techniques from Ken Block, Brian Deegan, Tanner Foust or Vaughn Gittin Jr. probably sounds like experience of a lifetime. And that’s exactly what participants in the Ford Octane Academy receive.
Four camps will be hosted over the course of the year, one by each founding member of Octane Academy. In each camp, contestants will go head-to-head in a battery of creative challenges and daunting dares over one long weekend.
To give you an inside look of what the camps are like, we interviewed Greg Emmerson, the editor of Eurotuner magazine, at a special media program. He got to sample a bit of each of the four camps to get a taste of what the actual program is like. You can read more from Greg’s point of view on the Eurotuner blog.
If you’re ready to pack your bags and hit the track with one of these hero drivers, the first place you need to visit is octaneacademy.com. Put together a video submission, telling your story of why you have what it takes to survive a weekend of on- and-off road challenges. Casting will take place nationwide, calling all enthusiasts of action and adventure and all levels of skill and ability.
Participants will be pushed to the limit and their experiences shared with the world through the Octane Academy series. Drivers who perform up to the standards of the pros will win prizes, and the overall winner of each camp will be awarded a one-of-a-kind vehicle created by Block, Foust, Deegan or Gittin Jr.
