Ford Giving Dark Horse Owners Free On-Track Instruction at Charlotte Motor Speedway

Ford offering new experiences for Mustang owners at speed and online

  • Dark Horse Track Attack a two-day instruction event

  • Ford will have similar events for GT and EcoBoost drivers

Ford must be getting tired of the Mustang-does-burnout-and-crashes meme. The Blue Oval is offering Mustang owners a new track school experience that can be done in person at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Plus more Mustang events across the country and online.

The Ford Mustang Dark Horse Track Attack at the Charlotte Motor Speedway is a chance for Dark Horse owners to get personal instruction and attention. The two-night event puts drivers on the skidpad, autocross, and the full Roval (a mix of the full high-bank oval and inner road course. All Dark Horse owners are eligible for the experience, and it’s free. Well, free minus getting there and your hotel.

Ford will teach you how to use the no-lift-shift system and there will be lead-follow and a hot lap. It has a 3:1 ratio of attendees to instructors, a good ratio for a course like this.

A destination driving event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway will let EcoBoost and GT owners experience similar on-track instruction. It will be run through the Ford Performance racing school and lets drivers learn drifting, track driving, and even has line-lock burnout classes. See, only the essentials for pony car owners.

Lastly, Ford is launching a new online portal to help owners engage and interact. A series of events in 10 markets will include lifestyle and motorsports events for those who can’t make it to Charlotte.

“Ford Mustang fans make this car what it is – a global icon for performance and excitement. And now, we’re giving owners a chance to connect regardless of distance and share their passion,” Mustang Brand Manager Joe Bellino said.
