All-New GT500 Owners Get to Experience Complementary GT500 Track Attack



On December 12, 2019 Ford and Ford Performance Racing School announced their collaboration to offer a complimentary driving program exclusively to owners of the all-new Shelby GT500. This will be the first owner program offered by Ford Performance to take place at the new Ford Performance Racing School, Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina. Through this opportunity, Shelby GT500 owners will learn firsthand the capabilities of their cars through classroom and on the road courses with professional training from instructors. 


“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.”


Shelby GT500 owners will dive right in and learn all about the performance and handling characteristics of their new cars in a controlled environment. Through this extensive complementary course, participants will learn cornering, braking and launch techniques while focusing on the dynamics of the shelby GT500 including its drive modes and launch control feature.


“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.”


Ford will cover the program’s costs in its entirety and Ford Performance Racing School will provide Shelby GT500s for participants to use. Owners will be responsible for their travel and hotel costs as well as the optional-day for the Mustang GT program. Ford has not finalized anything yet, but is currently considering letting participants bring guests. Those interested in learning more about the program should visit GT500TrackAttack.com
