It was a busy weekend for the Ford Performance Shelby GT350R. While the former Stig, Ben Collins, was ripping a prototype up the Goodwood hill across the pond, the competition version made its racing debut in IMSA’s Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge. Backed by Multimatic Motorsports, two Shelby GT350R-Cs saw their first racing action at Watkins Glen International raceway.
