Buyers of the mighty new Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 now benefit from a complimentary driving instruction day at the new Ford Racing School based at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Concord, North Carolina.

Called GT500 Track Attack, the new Ford Performance owner program gives owners training and insight from professionals into exactly what their new car is capable of.

Tuition takes place in the classroom, on one of America’s finest road courses, and a unique four-wide drag strip.

Lessons include cornering, braking and launch techniques, all tailored specifically to the Shelby GT500. The professional instructors will also advise owners on how to use the various drive modes and launch control feature.

Those who are particularly keen can buy an optional second day of track tuition, on Ford Mustang GTs fitted with upgraded suspension and brakes.

“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.”

Owners won’t have to pay a penny to attend the session, but will have to sort their own travel and hotel to North Carolina. Ford is investigating a system allowing owners to bring guests along, too.
