If you’re in the market for a high-performance muscle car, the Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustangs are hard to beat. These cars are designed to deliver an adrenaline-packed driving experience that is sure to get your heart racing. However, with great power comes great responsibility, and the reality is that driving these cars requires skill and experience.
Fortunately, Ford has announced a program that will give new Shelby GT350 and GT350R owners the opportunity to hone their driving skills in a safe and controlled environment. The GT350 Track Attack program is a complimentary performance driving school that takes place at the Ford Performance Racing School in Tooele, Utah.
Hands-On Instruction with Professional Instructors
The GT350 Track Attack program is an intensive, hands-on course that is designed to teach new GT350 owners the skills they need to safely and effectively operate their vehicles on the track. Participants will receive one-on-one instruction from professional Ford Performance Racing School instructors, who will help them learn how to handle the car’s immense power and take full advantage of its advanced performance features.
The program is available to owners of both the 2015 and 2016 Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustangs, and is completely complimentary. The only cost to participants is their own travel expenses to get to Utah. However, given that these cars start at $63,000, the cost of travel is a small price to pay for the skills and experience that participants will gain.
The GT350 Track Attack program begins in April and is open to Canadian consumers as well as those in the United States. This is in contrast to General Motors’ similar program for Corvette buyers, which is not available to Canadian consumers due to sales laws.
If you’re the proud owner of a new Shelby GT350 or GT350R Mustang, the GT350 Track Attack program is an opportunity you won’t want to miss. This complimentary performance driving school will give you the skills and experience you need to safely and confidently push your new car to its limits on the track. So why wait? Sign up for the GT350 Track Attack program today and take your driving to the next level!
DEARBORN, Mich., March 9, 2016 – It’s one thing to buy a fire-breathing, 526-horsepower Shelby GT350® Mustang, and it’s another thing to understand how to really drive it.
Owners of 2015 and 2016 Shelby GT350 and Shelby® GT350R Mustang are invited to learn the capabilities of their car as part of the complimentary GT350 Track Attack program offered by Ford Performance Racing School, located at Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah.
The program is designed to help drivers at all skill levels understand the nuances of their car’s performance and handling in a safe environment under professional supervision. The experience not only teaches high-performance driving skills, including braking, shifting and cornering techniques, but also focuses on the particular dynamics of the GT350 and GT350R.
“GT350 is a car that needs to be experienced on a closed road course,” said Jim Owens, Ford Performance marketing manager. “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 GT350 Track Attack program begins with an evening reception followed by a one-day performance driving school. Students will participate in both classroom and on-track driving tutorials with Ford Performance Racing School instructors.
The program is included with the purchase of a 2015 or 2016 Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang, on sale now in the U.S. and Canada. While the one-day drive event is complimentary and owners do not need to bring their own car, they are responsible for their airfare and lodging. For a cost, participants can opt for a second track day, as well as additional driving and non-driving programs.
“Regardless of a person’s driving ability, this will be an unbelievable experience,” said Dan McKeever, president, Ford Performance Racing School. 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.”
Participants are encouraged to bring a guest along to watch. For an additional cost, they can get behind the wheel of one of the school’s race-prepared 2015 Mustangs, or extend their experience another day to drive a race-prepared Boss 302 or Mustang GT.
