The debut of the 2024 Ford Mustang brought about at least one big surprise – the arrival of a new range-topping variant of the iconic pony car dubbed the Dark Horse, which is also the face of a new, rather expansive motorsports push. Thus far, we’ve seen several new Ford Mustang Dark Horse based racers debut, including the Dark Horse R and the newest NASCAR model, the latter of which employs a number of unique aero tweaks. As Ford Authority reported back in September, the Ford Mustang Dark Horse will also be the subject of a new post-purchase experience at the Ford Performance Racing School in Charlotte, North Carolina, and that same entity just released more details on this brand new outing.
The all-new 2024 Ford Performance Racing School Mustang Dark Horse will welcome drivers joining us for 1-Day, 2-Day and Advance Driving Schools at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The Ford Mustang Dark Horse Track Attack experience will be offered in one- and two-day guise, plus an advanced driving school for those that have already tackled the basic stuff and are ready to further hone their skills. At the moment, one-day classes will be offered on three different days in April, May, and June, as we can see in the post above, while two-day classes will be offered in April and June, with more set to be added soon.
The Ford Mustang Dark Horse Track Attack experience caters specifically to the new range-topping variant and is complimentary for owners – minus transportation and lodging – giving them the chance to spend some time learning in the classroom and on the track, as well as the skid pad and autocross. There, they’ll learn how to use features like no-lift shift, take on some lead-follow laps with three 20-minute sessions, and ride shotgun with an instructor as they complete hot laps at the track. Dark Horse owners interested in registering for this new Track Attack experience can do so by heading over here.
Meanwhile, 2024 Ford Mustang EcoBoost and GT owners will soon be able to take advantage of a new destination driving event at the Ford Performance Racing School at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is similar to the existing Track Attack program. Ford notes that this new offering will give owners something of a “choose-your-own-adventure” type of experience, as they’ll be able to pick from things like on-track driving, drifting, line-lock/burnout classes, and more.
