2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 first drive: A more approachable track star
The track at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Michigan, is a challenging and tight road course. OK, shoehorning in a miniature Laguna Seca within the city limits of the Detroit suburb is an unrealistic expectation. But the M1's narrow width, sharp turns, ridiculously tight hairpin, and short, 1.5-mile layout seems ideally suited for something small and lightweight, like a Mazda MX-5 Miata or hot hatchback.
Yet the M1 Concourse is where I'm getting my first stint behind the wheel of the 526-horsepower 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. It's the most track-focused 'Stang you can buy today. But is it too much to handle on a tight track like this?
