“Our fans have expressed extremely high interest in this car, but we know the proof is in the pudding,” said Lisa Schoder, Ford Focus ST Marketing manager. “We want ST fans, as well as drivers of competitive vehicles, to be able to taste this car firsthand.

“What better way to do it,” she added, “than to bring the car to the people with the help of professional driver instruction on closed courses.”
