Ford Racing and Miller Motorsports Park, which is just outside Salt Lake City, have teamed up to offer a unique SVT Raptor driving school for people looking to improve or create their rock-crawling, ramp-jumping or high-speed desert-racing skills with one of the most capable four-wheel drive pickup trucks sold.
Sure, that might seem like a tall order. But remember, this is the Ford SVT Raptor, and the team at MMP is top-notch. Much of the training, called the Raptor Assault Program, will come from pros such as Dan McKeever, John Williams and Melanie Snow. We also recommend watching the video that pro off-road racer Brian Deegan did for the program as well.
The school is open to anyone and will offer both morning and afternoon sessions twice a month from April to October. Individual sessions (morning or afternoon) cost $300. Advanced multiple-day, multiple-terrain packages top out over $1,200.
Because the facility has almost 1,200 acres of custom-designed off-road terrain, the Assault program will allow participants to experience everything serious and extreme low-range crawling over several nasty rock trails. Participants will use the actual pro racecourse where the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series takes place. MMP offers a wide-open desert course around the facility to replicate a more Baja-like higher-speed experience, too.
