Photos From Ford Proving Grounds Mustang Alley Friday

What this is all about:About two weeks before woodward, we got an email because we were registered for Mustang Alley. The offer? A day at Ford's Dearborn proving grounds. We meet, caravan up with a police escort, then make a parade lap on the low speed track. Then we park and take a van over to the conference center. Then, a meet and greet with some Ford folks, a track tour, a chance to drive some of their cars (Fiesta, 2010 Mustangs and an AWD Fusion) on the steering track. Finally, the ultimate. HOT LAPS on the suspenion and steering track with pro drivers. Cars? Ford GT's, Mustangs and a Fiesta (the one guy broke the V8 Focus). The Fiesta was very surprising, it really handled. The GT was everything they are meant to be. SO much fun!
