Steeda and Track Guys take over Sebring for high-performance hot laps

By Steve Turner

For 15 years the crew at Track Guys have traveled to the historic pavement of Sebring International Raceway to host a high-performance driving event. These events offer the opportunity for drivers of all skill levels to learn how to drive faster on a real racetrack with assistance from professional instructors. Better yet, participants get to do it in their own cars.

Naturally Steeda was on hand testing several of its project cars, including this Triple Yellow GT, which is destined for a transformation into an SCCA T1 racer. The company was also out testing a new damper and spring package in its EcoBoost Mustang and the stock-turbo four-banger was eating up GT350s on the track. “Today we worked on the EcoBoost and we are just totally flattered on its performance. We are validating the final steps of our CARB-certified calibration in that vehicle,” Steeda’s Dario Orlando said. “The performance of the EcoBoost has added a lot of excitement to Steeda because it’s a great bang for the buck.”

For several years in its Sebring tenure, the Track Guys event was sponsored by Steeda Autosports and dubbed Camp Steeda. This year that sponsorship and the Camp Steeda moniker returned to the event held over the Memorial Day weekend and the combination once again proved successful. While the event is open to all makes and models, Steeda’s presence definitely attracted the performance Ford crowd.
