The 50th anniversaries of the Shelby American and Ford’s victory at Le Mans in the Ford GT40, as well as the Ford Shelby G.T.350H, will be the focus of  the 9th annual “Team Shelby Bash,” scheduled for March 3-6 in Las Vegas.

The four-day event kicks off at the Silverton Hotel, followed by either a track day at Spring Mountain Ranch or a tour through the Valley of Fire.

“Each year, we find new ways to give Team Shelby club members an action-packed weekend of motoring excitement,” said Tracey Smith, Team Shelby national director.

“We put an emphasis on getting behind the wheel with as many interactive activities as possible this year,” Smith said, adding, “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. ”

Participants can register and purchase event tickets from the Team Shelby website.
