Hey, are you the proud owner of a shiny new 2015 or 2016 Shelby GT350 or Shelby GT350R Mustang? Well, we have good news for you. Yes, even better than simply being able to brag about owning a 2015 or 2016 Shelby GT350 or Shelby GT350R Mustang.

If you own one of those fancy pony cars, you will be able to participate in the GT350 Track Attack program, which kicks off in April at the Ford Performance Racing School at Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah. The program will teach Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R Mustang owners general performance driving staples like braking, shifting, and cornering, and it will focus in particular on teaching these drivers how to get the most out of their beasts.

“GT350 is a car that needs to be experienced on a closed road course,” said Jim Owens, Ford Performance marketing manager. “The program is designed for owners to learn how to get the most out of their car so they can appreciate the unique performance Shelby GT350 delivers, while also gaining driving skills and experience. It’s going to be a ton of fun.”

This one-day event is complimentary with the purchase of the 2015-2016 Shelby GT350 or Shelby GT350R Mustang, and the availability of Mustangs at the school means that owners do not need to drive their vehicles out to Utah—though you could always rent a 2016 Shelby GT-H to get out there, because why not. Airfare and lodging are not included, and a second day on the track is available for purchase at additional cost. Guests are permitted to come along to watch (or take photos, naturally), and they can be included in the course for additional cost.
