Blindfolded Thrills at Ford Performance Racing School



Quote:
Imagine the thrill of piloting a brand new, $50,000 ($68,000 in Canada) truck at highway speeds across a vast desert landscape.

The all-terrain tires below you are simultaneously clawing at – and hurling – rocks, sagebrush and probably more than a few small lizards as the suspension plunges up and down furiously, trying its damnedest to keep 5,700 pounds of truck in contact with the earth.

Now imagine doing it blindfolded.

With the amount of dust the Ford F-150 Raptor ahead of me is kicking up, that’s essentially what I’m doing, driving blind. My heart is pounding and my white knuckles are sawing back and forth in front of my face while I try not to death-grip the wheel. If I get too close to the truck in front of me in the hope of maintaining visual contact, there’s a serious chance of a crash since traction is often limited and the path changes directions without much warning causing the equally inexperienced driver ahead to brake hard frequently.
