We spent the past couple of days participating in Ford’s Boss Track Attack at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. If you don’t own a ’12-’13 Boss 302 Mustang, this program alone is reason enough to purchase one.
Offered free to owners of ’12-’13 Boss 302s, the Boss Track Attack is a one-day driving school that provides driving instruction so owners will know how to get the most out of their cars, especially on the track. The school even provides the cars, including a number of Laguna Secas.
The course includes classroom instruction, heel-and-toe exercises, time in a skid car to understand oversteer, and a walk-through at tricky turns to help students understand the braking and apexes. Classes incorporate 12 students and six qualified instructors, so there’s plenty of one-on-one time.
After follow-the-instructor drives and instructor ride-alongs, students are finally let loose on the track alone to explore the capabilities of the new Boss 302.
And for those who want to take it to yet another level, Boss owners can participate, at a cost, in a second-day, driving either MMP school cars or FR500C race cars. We highly recommend the additional instruction to get the most out of the program and to improve driving skills, especially if you plan participate in track days or even more serious racing.
Watch for a full report on our Boss Track Attack experience in a future issue of Mustang Monthly.
