Ford and Ford Performance Racing School are joining forces to offer a complimentary program exclusively for owners of the all-new Shelby GT500.
GT500 Track Attack, the latest in a long line of similar owner programs offered by Ford Performance, will be the first one introduced at the new Ford Performance Racing School location, Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. Much like sibling owner programs put on by the school, owners are given a unique opportunity to learn firsthand the capabilities of their cars with professional training from instructors. Training will happen in the classroom as well as on one of America’s best road courses and its first four-wide drag strip.
Owners of the all-new Shelby GT500 will be immersed into the performance and handling characteristics of their new cars in a controlled environment. Extensive course time teaches cornering, braking and launch techniques with a focus on the dynamics of the Shelby GT500, including its drive modes and launch control feature. Owners will have fun learning all about the performance attributes of this thrilling car and have the opportunity to improve their driving skills.
Ford Performance Racing School will provide Shelby GT500s for participants to use in all exercises. An optional second day of on-track instruction will be conducted in Ford Mustang GTs equipped with upgraded Ford Performance suspensions and brakes.
Ford will cover costs of the driving school in its entirety, while owners will be responsible for their travel, hotel and optional-day Mustang GT program costs. While not yet finalized, options for owners to bring guests are being considered. Those interested in learning more about this program should sign up here to receive additional details as they become available.
