In case you missed our earlier report, owners of the Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang models are being offered an exclusive chance to receive first-rate instruction on how to push their cars to the limit, in the form of a complimentary performance driving course.
It’s called the Shelby GT350 Track Attack program, and it’s being offered at the Utah Motorsports Campus (formerly Miller Motorsports Park) starting in April.
“GT350 is a car that needs to be experienced on a closed road course,” says Ford Performance Marketing Manager Jim Owens. “The program is designed for owners to learn how to get the most out of their car so they can appreciate the unique performance Shelby GT350 delivers, while also gaining driving skills and experience. It’s going to be a ton of fun.”
The Track Attack program includes an evening reception, followed by classroom and on-track tutorials focusing on the art of going fast, administered by Ford Performance Racing School instructors. It’s included with the purchase of any 2015 or 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang, although buyers needn’t bring their own cars to the track; they are only responsible for airfare and lodging. Participants can even opt to get a second day of performance driving instruction, for a cost.
“Regardless of a person’s driving ability, this will be an unbelievable experience,” says Ford Performance Racing School President Dan McKeever. “From the weekend track warrior to the car collector, this program provides the skills needed to really enjoy Shelby GT350 Mustang in the environment for which it is designed.”
