‘Team Shelby Bash’ to Shine in Vegas

Feb 9, 2016

Team Shelby, the official car club for Shelby enthusiasts worldwide, is celebrating the ninth Team Shelby Bash on Thursday, March 3, through Sunday, March 6 in Las Vegas.

The four-day event will feature track days and hot-laps at Spring Mountain Ranch, parties at the Shelby American headquarters, exclusive tours, car cruises and more.

The four-day event will kicks off March 3 with a reception at the Silverton Hotel in Las Vegas. Hot laps in the latest Shelby American vehicles will begin March 4 at Spring Mountain Ranch and a barbecue will be held that night with live entertainment at Shelby American.

For those who opt out of a track experience, Team Shelby will take guests on a tour through the Valley of Fire on March 4 and a Poker Run on March 5. That evening, Shelby American will host a banquet with high profile speakers, VIP guests, Shelby legends and video presentations, according to the group. The 50th anniversaries of the Shelby American and Ford victory at Le Mans in the Ford GT40, as well as the Ford Shelby G.T.350H will be honored.

“We put an emphasis on getting behind the wheel with as many interactive activities as possible this year,” said Tracey Smith, Team Shelby national director. “Carroll believed that driving should be an adventure, so he wanted the Bash to become much more than just looking at cool cars and cruising the Las Vegas strip. The best way to enjoy the high octane Shelby lifestyle is from the driver’s seat. “
