Driving Day: Lots of seat time!

A high-performance driving experience for owners of the Shelby GT500

Included with the purchase of every 2022 Shelby GT500 is a complimentary one-day track/classroom experience. This experience will provide you the opportunity to participate in both classroom and on-track instruction by the Ford Performance Racing School and will prepare you to get the most out of your new GT500.

The GT500 Track Attack program delivers excitement, training, and thrills to Shelby GT500 owners. The new GT500 is the pinnacle of any pony car ever engineered by Ford Performance and our facility is the perfect venue to demonstrate just what it can do both on the track and on the strip.  Our professional instructors help anyone take their driving expertise to the next level, whether a beginner or experienced racer.

The GT500 Track Attack provides you with a full immersion into the performance and technological features of the Shelby GT500, in a controlled environment with professional instruction. The extensive course time includes classroom instruction and plenty of time behind the wheel – starting with exercises that teach the fundamental performance driving skills required to wring the most out of the new GT500 on track and strip.  These skills are taught and reinforced to share with the owners how best to use the many advanced technological attributes of the car while focusing on the particular dynamics of the GT500 and the goals of establishing the performance capabilities of the owners’ car and improving their driving skills – all while having fun.
