Ranger Raptor is fast, comfortable, and packed with top-shelf, purposeful technology that’s designed to perform. This is the baddest Ranger we’ve ever made.”

    -Carl Widmann -- Chief Engineer, Ford Performance

    Raptor Assault takes place in the classroom and off-road with terrain and majestic views commonplace in Utah.

    Raptor Assault takes place at the Ford Performance Racing School in the Tooele Valley, Utah. The School is surrounded by beautiful views thanks to the majestic Stansbury mountains to the west, the beautiful Qquirrh mountains to the east and the Great Salt Lake to the north.

    The off-road course is located in the Tooele Valley and travels over wide open high-desert terrain commonplace to northern Utah. The soil is comprised of rock, clay and sand. This surface has been deposited in the valley from the mountains, and the lake, over the millennia. These natural features create a mix of challenges suitable for drivers of all ability levels. The off-road course is a controlled environment — it’s ideal for learning and practicing basic skills — it’s a course where participants can have a fun exciting experience!

  • Founded in 2006, Ford Performance Racing School is the only school of its type supported by Ford Motor Company and has become one of America’s top training programs for those wanting to sharpen their driving skills while becoming better and safer drivers.  The school employs a fleet of modified Mustang GTs, GT500s, Mach 1s, Fiesta STs, F-150 Raptors, Ranger Raptors, Edge STs, and Explorer STs… all steered by a team of experienced instructors comprised of championship-winning drivers.
