Ford and Ford Performance Racing School Introduce GT500 Track Attack Program

Owners to the all new GT-500 are in for a real treat as Ford and the Ford Performance Racing School offer a unique experience. Ford and the Ford Performance Racing School announced recently their collaborative efforts to offer an exclusive complimentary racing school program, GT500 Track Attack, to all new GT-500 owners.

The GT500 Track Attack will be the first complementary driving program to take place at the new Ford Performance Racing School location, Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. Through this program, GT-500 owners will learn first-hand from professional instructors the capabilities of their cars through classroom learning and driving on road courses. Instructors will cover techniques such as cornering and braking and launching. Participants will also learn the driving modes on their cars and the launch control feature.

“With its supercar-level powertrain, the all-new Shelby GT500 takes Mustang to a performance level once reserved only for exotics,” said Dave Pericak, Ford director of enterprise product line management. “We’ve set a new standard among American performance cars with our most powerful street-legal V8 to date, plus the quickest-shifting transmission ever in a Mustang for all-out precision and speed. GT500 Track Attack is absolutely essential in helping owners understand how to get the most out of their cars. This promises to be an exciting experience – one that owners will never forget.”

Ford will cover the costs for the program and the Ford Performance Racing School will provide GT500’s to use for the course. Participants are responsible for covering their travel and hotel costs as well as if they’d like to stay for the extra day of course material.

“We are looking forward to the first season of GT500 Track Attack, especially as this will be among the first programs conducted at our new facility in Concord,” said Dan McKeever, president, Ford Performance Racing School. “Shelby GT500 is an exceptional car and delivers an exhilarating driving experience. Our school is the perfect venue to demonstrate just what it can do, both on the track and on the strip. Our professional instructors can help anyone take their driving expertise to the next level, whether they are beginners or experienced drivers.”
