'Speed' Mustang | Cars
The great Pony Car War has been raging longer than many of us have been alive, with countless skirmishes between Chevrolet and Ford over the last 40-plus years. The latest battle began with the arrival of Chevy‘s new 580-hp Camaro ZL1. But Ford has quickly regained the high ground with its all-new 2013 Shelby GT500. Boasting 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft of torque, the GT500 is the most powerful production car made in America at the time and a fitting tribute to the late Carroll Shelby — one of the leading generals in Ford’s decades-long war against Chevy.
Carroll Shelby was a legendary American car racer in the late 1950s, but his true skill shined as a gifted car designer who created some of the best performance-based American cars beginning in the mid-'60s. He continued to design until the day he passed away in 2012. In fact, he had been working on the 50th anniversary edition of the Ford Mustang when he died. His car designs are as beautiful as they are powerful and factory stock versions of his cars will blow the doors off most of the competition.
Just like Tobey Marshall, you now have the chance to take to the track in this thrilling car. Liveried just like his car from the 2014 hit film 'Need for Speed', unleash the power for the V8 monster and leave everyone in your wake!
"When a carmaker shuts half a racetrack and fills the other half with cones and warnings of impending doom, to stop you from extending the car to its limits, you know those limits are just too high. For the health and safety people, at least."... Pat Devereux

Fantastic experience At Blyton today, highly recommend this. Great staff, really look after you. I had a great instructor unfortunately I forgot his name that’s because I was buzzing. Will definitely go and do it again. Thanks guys.Steve Chambers
Had a fabulous time in the Barricade Mustang at Tockwith. Barry the instructor was a brilliant. Didn't think I could drive that fast. ThanksSteve Clarke
Offered at fantastic price of £5 per lap!! Really great as complimented my choice of the Mustang 350, a real classic! Car was lhd and automatic so not the same driving experience as 350 but great comparison Loved the look and theatrics of 'Baricade' although like Transformers it is the trucks that I love (enjoyed experience in Maximus Prime) But great experience with well organised and pleasant staff, nice instructionPeter Davies
