So you’ve plunked the required cash into the dealer’s hand. You’ve signed the paperwork. You’ve got the keys, and you’re ready to get more closely acquainted with your new beastly baby. And get acquainted you should, as you’re now behind the wheel of a Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Mustang Shelby GT350 which has a 526-horsepower 5.2-liter V-8 engine mounted up front. It’s ready to rock… but are you?
If you want to make sure you’re prepped for this sort of power, then perhaps you should sign up for a track day event with your new ride. Ford’s got you covered there, because a Track Attack program is in the works. Any customer who purchases the latest Mustang Shelby GT350 and more hardcore GT350R will be able to attend a one-day driving school.
It’s something Ford has done in the past with it’s higher-spec Mustang variants. Those who bought a 2012 Boss 302 were able to attend the Boss Track Attack program, which took place at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah. This is also where Ford held its Octane Academy for customers who purchased Focus and Fiesta ST hatchbacks.
The Mustang Shelby GT350 Track Attack will begin taking customer registrations sometime in February, according to the folks at Mustang6G. Track Attack classes will then begin in April, and they’re set to take place in Utah. Miller Motorsports Park is now called the Utah Motorsports Campus but the action should be just as high as it has been in the past. Actually, it should be even more fun now that Ford has its most heavily track-focused variant to date in the GT350 and GT350R.
