I get a complimentary day of instruction at ST OCTANE ACADEMY

driving

Because I bought a Focus ST before 2015 (12/27/14  cool), I am eligible for a free day of instruction with option to purchase a second day. Approx. 20% of the day will be classroom instruction which includes lunch and 80% will be wheel time!

STOCTANEACADEMY.COM

I requested more info and imagine I will be trying to schedule for spring break or immediately following spring semester end. It's in Salt Lake City, Utah (not far from me).

Can you bring a buddy?  Because I will happily drive down, bring beer, and cover the hotel if you can bring a buddy.

I only took a cursory glance at the FAQ but I do believe I can bring a buddy... let's see here...

Yes, you may bring a paying Guest.

If you purchase a Guest Experience your guest does not drive the Ford Focus or Fiesta ST cars.

During your registration, you may purchase a Guest seat for the "Guest Experience."

If you are staying for the optional second day, you may sign up a Guest for the "Intro to Racing Upgrade" on this second day.

If you selected not to bring a Guest to the Hoonigan Reception / Day 1 [referred to as the 'Guest Experience'] during your registration, you clearly understand that you are not allowed to bring any guest to the evening Hoonigan reception, or to the next day's activities which includes classroom sessions, on-track experience, karting, and meals at the racetrack.

What I am unclear on is the distinction if any between "paying guest" and "purchased guest experience."

I'll have to get the low down on that when I am ready to register, but in either case I am getting the feeling that I can bring a guest, but not at a complimentary or even discounted rate, and that the guest will not be able to drive unless we both purchase the 2nd day instruction. Unfortunately, I don't think you have any advantage showing up with me as guest.  hmm

Never know though. Let me look into it further... this page has a lot more info as far what a guest can expect to experience: http://stoctaneacademy.com/register-now.html

No pricing though. Of course.  roll

The homepage video looks like a lot of instructional autocross. They refer to it as UrbanX on that link I pasted.
