“We are delighted to announce that the 2018 Mustang offers an available Performance Pack that will be among the first vehicles on the road to offer the Y-rated Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires."

"What I wanted to do was create new solutions, break away from the tried and true.  In racing there are very few opportunities to do that.  Also, racing requires huge budgets relative to simply doing trackdays.  But most importantly, I’m a trackday driver and not a racer.  I wanted to design cars that I myself would want to own and drive."

 

"Blake put his hand on my shoulder and said, “Don’t worry dad. That’s not a rock chip. That’s a memory mark.

It’s the adventures, not the things that count.  I’ll never forget that moment."

After looking at minimizing the number of shifts at some of our favorite tracks, the team selected a combination that would allow our customers to get out of the hole without breaking the tires loose and continue on down the track, taking full advantage of all 662HP."
