2016 Dates for the Ford Shelby GT350 North American Track Tour Announced
Four locations chosen for the second year of Ford and Shelby fun and education
As we explained back in October 2015 when we visited the Sebring, Florida, stop of the GT350 North American Track Tour (you can read it here: mustang-360.com/news/1510-ford-delivers-track-side-with-new-consumer-focused-event), the Track Tour events are a way for Ford not only to get consumers behind the wheel of a GT350 but to educate them via technical and performance seminars on site. Last year invites went out to past Ford performance vehicle owners (Shelby products, Boss 302, and so on), and we can assume the same is happening this year. You can learn more about the event at reg.attendeenet.com/profile/web/index.cfm?PKwebID=0x49035c1a&varPage=home. As a Shelby or Boss 302 owner, you can email Ford about possibly attending if you didn’t get an invitation in the mail.
Ford is once again hitting the road for four new track locations throughout the United States where special invitees, dealers, and media can experience the GT350’s performance, handling, and braking on track with Ford instructors. The technical portion of the event includes overviews of the vehicle’s drivetrain, suspension, aero, cooling, specific body panels, and more. Ford also has a performance “garage” on site with all of the latest Ford performance offerings, including Focus ST, Fiesta ST, Focus RS, and more. Who knows, you might even catch a glimpse of the new Ford GT and Raptor models coming out later this year. The first event just blew by and is already in the books, but the remaining three events are listed below.
