Ford is Getting Shelby GT350 Mustang Owners Ready to Attack the Track

Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R Driver School 1

Owners of the Shelby GT350 and GT350R twins have power – 526 horsepower, to be exact – but some of them might not have the control needed to fully exploit the capabilities of their high-performance machines. Luckily for them, Ford has a course designed to give them that control.

As part of Ford Performance Racing School’s GT350 Track Attack program at Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah, owners of 2015 or 2016 Shelby GT350s and GT350Rs get professional driving training on a closed course. Ford says, “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.”

The program is included with the purchase of a 2015 or 2016 GT350 and GT350R and includes a reception dinner the first night and a following day of performance driving training, both in a classroom and, of course, on the UMC track with Ford Performance Racing School instructors.

Although the course is free and participants don’t have to bring their own cars, they have to pay their ways to get there and for their hotel rooms. A second track day can be reserved for a charge.
