GPMC NEWS – November 2020Mark Bedel reports on the Penn’s Cave Cruise held September 26.A few Saturdays back, we did a wonderful cruise out to Penn's Cave just beyond State College. We had elevenMustangs and close to 30 club members made the trip. We all met at Dick's Diner on Route 22 before starting the tripat 10:00 am.We made a couple of stops for petrol, refreshments and other necessities along the way. Upon arrival, the Penn'sCave staff had provided a "special" Mustang Club only parking area. Two boats took us all on a tour of theunderground cavern as well as Lake Nittany. We finished the afternoon off with dinner at the US Hotel inHollidaysburg and then departed heading for home.Special thanks to Jerry and Pat Smith and Tim and Theresa Senich for planning and doing a reconnaissance trip. Agood time was had by all!November 2020Page 6 of 15

GPMC NEWS – November 2020* * * * * * * * *A First Person Report from your newsletter editorYour Newsletter Editor was in Charlotte in September as a participant in the GT350 Track Attack programconducted by Ford Performance Racing School and facilitated by professional instructors with several yearsof racing involvement.The program is a high-performance driving experience free of charge to owners of new Shelby GT350 and 350RMustangs, with classroom and on-track instruction to leverage the cars’ full track capability. The program, scheduledthroughout the year was previously held in Salt Lake City, Utah but beginning this year was held at Charlotte MotorSpeedway venues including the speedway oval, the infield road track and Zmax Dragway. I was originally scheduledfor early May but I was pushed to September due to NASCAR taking over the speedway for the month leading up toone of their racing events. I had chosen the complimentary 1 day program, and paid a fee to bring my wife along as anon-driving guest. Other options included bringing a driving guest, and a day 2 program, both options requiring theuse of Mustang GTs.November 2020Page 7 of 15

GPMC NEWS – November 2020Due to restrictions imposed by COVID-19 the Welcome Reception event scheduled for the evening prior was cancelledso we started right in with classes and driving the following morning. Some of the major points we discussed werevehicle dynamics including traction, understeer/oversteer, weight transfer and managing tire contact patches. Alsodiscussed was braking including defining the braking zone, straight line braking, pedal pressure and heel-toetechnique, and cornering including turn-in, apex, corner exit speed and use of all of the track. These classes wereinterspersed with significant in-car track sessions to apply and experience first-hand what we learned.The school assigned us GT350s that were basically stock with the exception of a rollbar and racing harness. We wereissued racing suits, full face racing helmets with a headset, and a HANS “head and neck support” device to attach tothe helmet and secure under the shoulder straps. Somewhat restrictive but you cannot compromise safety, especiallyif you spin out and hit the wall when going over 110 mph!My first in-car session involved using the shutdown area and return road of Zmax for the braking exercises like pedalpressures and ABS tolerance, and to practice the heel-toe throttle blip downshifting technique. This was not easy byany means. Next I moved on to the Skid Car, an everyday sedan with an outrigger contraption with small tires at eachcorner that the instructor can through remote control raise and lower the outrigger wheels which lower and raise howmuch car is in contact with the pavement to give me the sense of oversteer and understeer. Unintentionally, I did acouple 360s, no lie!Moving on, I was back in the yellow/black striped #2 GT350 to experience on a slalom course the differences of the3 out of the 5 selectable driving modes: Normal, Sport, and Track (Weather and Drag Strip were not utilized). Eachmode has preselected settings for suspension, steering and exhaust. After lunch I spent the afternoon in severalsessions driving the speedway oval/infield road track circuit. This was arranged as a lead/follow, the instructor wasalone in the front of my group of 3 cars following him. We began with a casual drive around the entire circuit tobecome somewhat familiar with the course. Driving at a rather slow speed when on the speedway turns with bankingof 24% is quite unnerving, I had the sensation that I was going to fall out the window. My wife was with me for the “getto know the course” drive and let me say she got to know me!My group pulled into the Xfinity garage paddock area so I could let my wife out and we then reentered the infield trackto begin our first session. We began moving quite quickly to warm up the Michelins then the instructor energeticallypicked up the pace. We drove through the first segment of the road course then out onto the speedway oval justbefore the first turn and let ’er rip. We would pass through turn #2 and come full throttle down the backstretch beforehard braking deep and throttle blip downshift to make the short deviation down off the straight and back up on to it. Ithink they put this piece in to keep us from losing control at a very high speed and killing ourselves. At least I boughtthe extra car damage insurance for 220 to limit my out of pocket expense to 7,000!Next we headed into turn #3, and on subsequent laps here is where our group of followers would reorder our positionsto allow each driver to have an opportunity to be behind the instructor. This provides an opportunity not only for theinstructor to assess your performance but if you think he should pick up the pace you could in effect “push him” byclosing your distance. To execute the reorder the first position driver would reduce speed a bit and drop down to thetrack edge while the others increase speed and pull up to fill in the empty spots. By then you have increased yourspeed to their pace and pulled into the end of the line. The reorder has to be completed by the end of turn #4 prior tothe group dropping down off the oval again to head back into the infield road course. This was repeated in each 20minute session, 3 sessions in all. In between sessions we relaxed in the garage area while receiving driving pointers,and at one break they topped of the gas tanks. After the track sessions were over the instructors were providing ridea-longs to all guests and drivers .hang on for dear life!!!!!Afterwards, we drove slowly back to the school building using the access roads that are throughout the back of therace complex. At the building we had an informal graduation ceremony, receiving a certificate of completion, a jumpdrive of our cars in action, a Track Attack T-shirt, a personalized metallic “trophy” that resembles the front fender areawhere the heat extractor resides and a few tchotchkes. I had a really great time and learned a lot. Thank you Ford forthe fantastic program.November 2020Page 8 of 15
