Team Shelby is at it again and you’re not going to want to miss this trip! Once again Team Shelby is planning a European tour that will encompass 11 days through four different countries where you’ll see some unbelievable venues. This Grand tour of Europe Experience is Team Shelby’s way of celebrating Carroll Shelby’s world championships, as Europe is where many of Carroll’s most important racing victories were earned. The Grand Tour dates are July 4-15, 2018.

Bookending the 11 day excursion is the Le Mans Classic in France and the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK—both bucket list items for any self-respecting gear head, or petrol head if you prefer, and can be attended separately with Team Shelby specific packages. You’ll enjoy driving experiences, exclusive access and Team Shelby parties, along with some of the most spectacular driving roads and food venues the world has to offer! While the 11 day tour is certainly the best way to experience all that Team Shelby has planned, the good folks at Team Shelby have certainly placed into consideration those that wish to participate in key days/events or a specific segment of the Grand tour via Team Shelby’s package offerings and an “a la carte” menu on The Carroll Shelby Store website. Simply visit the Grand Tour page HERE and select the event or events you wish to participate in. Tickets are limited, so if you’re considering this once in a lifetime experience get your tickets now and don’t wait!

Travel accommodations are not included in the package pricing (though scheduled meals and activities are) but Team Shelby has selected ARTA Travel to aid in travel booking, and has already negotiated some great hotel rates. Lastly, you can ship your vehicle to Europe for the Grand Tour or rent a fun vehicle to drive for the length of your stay. Both options are being coordinated via Team Shelby with more information found on the Grand Tour package page at The Carroll Shelby Store link above. You can also see the full schedule of events and their locations on that page as well.
