Talked to Tom today to get info on the GT 350 Driving school. It is a 1 day with a second day that you can purchase. Most are Sundays and Mondays. The first day is in a 2016 GT 350, the second are in a race preped boss 302. should be fun. i am planning on doing the class in late April or early May.
Has anyone been to the school yet?

I actually just received a letter about it in the mail today. I'm considering.
I believe you are talking about a different track event than cdmudd is, the letter I believe you received is the North American Track Tour, and the event he is speaking of is the GT 350Track Attack, the Track Attack can be one or two days Ford is paying for the first, and you can option to have a second day that you can pay for, this is only done in Utah at their track. The North American Track Tour that you received the letter about (I think this is the letter you mentioned) is being done at four tracks across the US and is only for one day, and I think only for a few hours, maybe four or something like that. I know both track on the eastern side of the states are full, unless something has changed.

Yes, the Atlanta and Pocono track tours are full. Received my letter two days ago, immediately tried to sign up for Pocono, and they were full. Was able to get on a wait list.

Signed up for the 1 day school in August. Very much looking forward to it. My biggest fear is that I've never driven a manual trans on a track. Only automatics. I don't know how to 'heel and toe' and it's not coming naturally as I practice while driving around the neighborhood...

I attended the event when I had my 2012 Boss 302. The facility is quite awesome. There is a museum with well, I can't even remember how many GT40's there were. A very fun event and lots to do and learn. I've been into racing for years and I still had a blast tearing around the track in the Boss. I think this event will be even better because as much as I loved the Boss, this car is more track capable. Lots of really cool freebies as well.

Hawkeye,

They will teach you all about heel and toe, as well as everything you need to know. If they don't then ask. They are there to help, and the instructors are great. Plus you won't be doing heel and tow if you aren't comfortable with it. Just relax ans enjoy the day.

I was there in 2014 and it was loaded with cars. The owner of then Miller Motorsport Park had a very nice collection. I didn't know the name had changed so not sure what happened. Sad for sure if all of those cars are gone. So much history in that one building.

I just did the School May 10th. We had guys that have no intentions of tracking their basic 350 to those of us with track cars and will track them. Most with no track time to some with many days. You are there to learn what your car is capable of doing. That dose not mean you will push it that far. Everyone should have it at the top of their to do list. Where else can you go and have Ford pay for the BRAKES and TIRES you burn up. The staff made sure those that had a friend or wife with them attended every class and drove them to each station to experience and see what the drivers were learning and doing. At the end of the day they were given hot laps just as the drivers were. Fly to Vegas and drive up or fly direct to Salt Lake City and make a vacation out of it you will not regret it.

JUST DO IT

regarding the museum cars: The Miller family still owns them, some were moved to Colorado and others are in SLC.

Just completed the Track Attack program in Utah. Great fun and great instructors. Very little classroom time, but just enough. Plenty of track time. Don't worry about driving a manual, you will get to third gear and stay there for every turn, every lap, no shifting. Go in humble and follow the progression and you will learn the most.
We had a small class and had our own car for the entire day. Skid car was a hoot.
Makes me want to start doing track days, but I don't have the time.

Sounds similar to the Boss Track Attack, however we were able to race around the track and pass as well. I love the track so it was a great experience in the Boss. These cars were put through hell so brakes were well-used. You just had to feel the car and know the limits. I hope with these cars aren't quite as beat up yet.

I was there more at the end of the Boss event so it's understandable. Looking forward to the Shelby. This is the only Shelby I've ever considered owning as I've always wanted a track car. Hoping this is the one.
