How many of you guys are going to take advantage of the GT500 track attack program? Besides the car itself it is one of the things I look most forward too. I did the Raptor Assault program at the same location. Can't wait.


Couple of pictures from my Raptor Assault experience.

I will. However I don't think it will happen soon enough before my December track event which I plan to bring the new 500 to. I would have liked to spend some time in Tooele with some feel before I go nuts at Daytona.

I was at the first GT350 track attack and hope to be at the first GT500 track attack. This September will be my 4th GT350 Track Attack. I wish there was a track only option. I don't get much out of the rest of the stuff. Don't get me wrong, the program is great, but geared towards a beginner. However the instructors there will always find something for you to improve upon. A class operation.

I like to disassemble things.
Did it with my '16 and really enjoyed it. Top notch instruction. Really looking forward to doing again but this time in the 500.

I'm in, but not familiar with the program? Where is it held? Is it included with the purchase of the car or something you still pay to attend/participate in?

Best Regards,
Dave

The program is free when you purchase the car. You have to enroll in a class within one year of purchase. The ford racing school is located near Salt Lake City. You have to pay for your hotel and travel to Salt Lake. Here is a link to the current schools. (GT500 not listed yet). https://performance.ford.com/enthusiasts/drivingschool.html

Got it, ok thanks! Yes, I have a few friends that coach for them. Didn't know the Miller Ford Performance School was the GT500 Track Attack, thank you!

Best Regards,
Dave

Dave, it'll be interesting to hear your thoughts after tracking the GT500 and your GT3RS.

The consumer doesn't use their car, do they?
The Viper Experience had something similar.

Nope. It's arrive and drive. They supply everything. They even do dinner the night before.

Since I have asked, as others have, about a GT500 track tour, and no one has said yes or no, Im planning on setting one up for us. and all Ford Fun Day, at Pocono next year. Road course and straightline stuff.

Im thinking if i talk to enough shops to sponsor, it would be a good day.

But yes, ill be partaking in the track package day
