I'm getting ready to book my gt500 track attack. My question is , is the second day really worth the $. 1700.00 seems pricey but if its worth it , I'm in. Any body do it yet? Any feed back would be great. Thanks

I went in Aug on a week when they didn't offer the second day. In hindsight, I think a second day would have been awesome after getting the feel of the car and the track on day 1 (was my first track experience). They really run the driving school very well. I have to imagine day 2 would be fewer students too.

I went with the second day in the Mustang gt. I dare say I think I had more fun the second day. I would book a second day and third day all day long!!!! Just my.02 worth. Plus I had so much fun with my group. Great people. Another day of hanging out and drinking/dinner afterwords!!! I doubt you would regret spending the $$$coin. More track time and just plain fun!!!!

I did the one day twice. The second time through was double the fun… I knew the track and was placed in the “fast group.”

I’ll be arriving in Charlotte at 10am on Saturday, and track attacking on Monday. I didn’t do the 2nd day because I have to be back in Minnesota on Wednesday AM for a Sporting Clay event.

I am rolling solo, I think I’m gonna hit the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Saturday, and the Mustang Museum on Sunday before the banquet. Probably find a steak and some beer

If you like barbecue would highly recommend Midwood Smokehouse: 5/5.

You guys can take your own cameras/phones and mount them anywhere inside the car. It’s a good backup for their video system, which doesn’t always work.

Just joined the forum and will also be attending the Track Attack. Haven't figured out flight and rental yet but am doing the 2nd day and got signed up today. Once I figure out my arrangements, I'll come back and hopefully we'll have more people involved in the discussion.

Not sure why I’m even driving a GT500, Alamo hooked me up with a Hyundai Elantra and that baby has sport mode

A word of caution… I left the track and drove my rental car to the airport to fly back home the first time through… you just might feel the car shaking and about to come apart after leaving the track. That’s when you look down and see the car giving everything it has at about 120. 😬 :cool::LOL:

Your internal speed calibration will be skewed after a day at the track.🤟

I was thinking that, kinda like the brake dynamics of driving my truck after a weekend of running the GT500....I’ve experienced some sketchy moments there

Funny and YES! I’ve gone into tighter turns at “Mustang speeds” more than once when driving my truck!
