Courtesy of Automobile Magazine: Curse you, Mother Nature, for cutting short our stint in the most track-focused modern GT to date.
The skies are threatening as we pull up to the Monticello Motor Club, a picturesque private circuit carved out of a slice of the Catskills region of upstate New York. It’s not looking good. We’re here to drive a 2018 Ford Mustang GT dialed up to 2—a car that’s been tuned for track day duty but one that’s also tame enough to saddle up and drive every day. We’ll drive it if Mother Nature cooperates, that is.
As we wait for the tarmac to dry out and pray to the track gods that it doesn’t start raining again, we hop in for a short road loop in a GT fitted with Ford’s new Performance Pack Level 2 option. Officially announced at last year’s SEMA show, the PP2 is only available for the Mustang GT and serves as a further countermeasure to Chevy’s potent 1LE package for the Camaro.
