Be a part of one of the largest gatherings in Shelby history as Team Shelby Northeast & Shelby American celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Shelby American in Carlisle, PA.

 

This is the year for Shelby owners to attend the Carlisle Ford Nationals for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Celebrate a historic milestone as we honor the company and the man that started it all, Carroll Shelby.

 

Carlisle Events is providing Team Shelby with a premium location to park 400 cars just steps from the Midway and grandstands. This prime real estate at the Ford Nationals is a highly sought after location not shared by many. Team Shelby Northeast will put you in the center of all the excitement that is Carlisle. Imagine having Times Square, NYC for you to entertain you and your friends for a private event that lasts 3 days; that will be the feeling for Shelby owners at the 50th Anniversary Celebration in Carlisle, PA.

 

Your Shelby will join hundreds of other Shelby vehicles from the last 50 years. This year we will make it official and let the world know that Carlisle, PA is the undisputed largest gathering of Shelbys in the world. Guinness World Record officials will be on hand to verify and document the 2012 Carlisle Ford Nationals / 50th Anniversary Celebration as the official largest assembly of Shelby automobiles on the planet! This event is sure to go down as a notable milestone in Shelby history.

 

From a world class track event to a VIP entrance unlike anything you have ever witnessed before. An event so big it took 50 years to plan! Your event begins at Summit Point, West Virginia and its famous road course. Drive your Shelby the way Carroll Shelby designed it to be driven: Hard and fast! This course is perfect for track novices and experts alike, with its long straights and winding s-curves. This event will give you the chance to learn how to achieve maximum performance from your vehicle while allowing bragging rights as you put your Shelby through the paces. The track event is open to all vehicles provided they meet the minimum safety requirements. We welcome all Shelby inspired and Ford cars, Bosses, Ford GTs, Vipers, Shelby Dodge etc. You will spend two days at the course and enjoy lunch on us both days. Receive pointers and advice from experienced Team Shelby owners as you dial in your beast to enjoy the finest American made performance cars ever built. (Professional driver instruction will be available for an additional charge for those who would like to learn how to squeeze even more performance out of their cars.) First class accommodations will be available for participants in downtown colonial Winchester, VA.

 

Shelby American’s display trailer will join VP of Sales and Operations, Gary Patterson along with other Shelby VIP’s to demo some of their new cars and answer any of your technical questions. Be a part of the “track the truck live” through the 50th tour as the display rig travels from Summit Point to Carlisle, all live via Shelby American’s official 50th tour website.

 

Once you have satisfied your track addiction, prepare for a winding drive from Summit Point through the mountains of Virginia and West Virginia. We’ll depart Friday morning on a poker run to the Carlisle Ford Nationals. Put your windows down, blast some great music and drive “Team Shelby Northeast style” in a caravan to the greatest Ford event in the world! But before we get to the Ford Nationals, we’ll be making a stop just minutes from Carlisle at Quarter Aces Drag-O-Way for a little straight line action. We’ll have the track all to ourselves for a two hour non-stop assault on this beautiful 1/8 mile drag strip. Bragging rights are up for grabs. Or perhaps you would like to challenge your buddy? Either way, a little track time for those who like to drag race. And only $20 per car, no matter how many fans and enthusiasts you have crammed in your Shelby!

 

When you arrive at Carlisle you will be entering the grounds and driving to the middle of the showfield via a grand entrance. Relax on Friday at the show because Friday night the Shelby American midway location will be open exclusively to the limited ticket holders for the VIP event. Prepare yourself for a grand entrance of special guests unlike anything you have ever experienced. You will then enjoy the finest food and beverage while meeting fellow Shelby owners and taking photos with our special guests. The best live band we can present will be playing while you take in this private event and meet legends of the automotive world. This event is exclusive and LIMITED providing you with a very intimate feel. A truly unbelievable list of special guests is scheduled to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of one of the most famous performance car manufacturers in the world. This is an event worthy of the Shelby 50th Anniversary Tour Celebration.

 

Team Shelby Northeast has also worked with Shelby American and Shelby owners across North America to assemble an awe inspiring collection of the rarest of rare Shelby Automobiles. We have created a collection of 26 vehicles to represent the best of Shelby over the last 50 years. Original Cobras? We have them! Early production 1965 GT350? We have it! One of the very few original owner GT350s with a Paxton supercharger. No problem! Vintage GT500s. GT500KRs and GT350 Hertzs? Check, check and check! Let's not forget about the rare Series one or the ultra rare F-150 Supersnake because we have them too. Terlinguas, a GT500KR pace car, the Supersnake prototype? No problem, we have those covered. A Don Prudhomme Supersnake, one of only 7 built? Come on, this is the 50th Anniversary Celebration and we are bringing you a collection of the rarest cars in one place at one time worthy of a 50 year collection!

 

Saturday morning starts with the official recording of the largest gathering of Shelbys ever assembled. Join the 50th Celebration and be a part of world history as we certify with Guinness World Records and Shelby once again takes another record. You and your Shelby will make the record as a documented part of Shelby history. Enjoy a fantastic BBQ lunch prepared exclusively for Team Shelby owners. Relax in the club's tent as a DJ spins great tunes from the past 50 years.

 

Team Shelby Northeast will once again host its own award ceremony featuring the Top 20 Best of Show awards. Even the most discriminating collector will want to be part of the silent action featuring banners, die casts and other memorabilia to benefit the Carroll Shelby foundation. Be in the front row to watch this year’s burnout contest and the Ms. Carlisle Ford Nationals/Shelby Girl Beauty Contest.

 

Saturday night means the Ford Parade & Street Party in downtown Carlisle. Not just any parade though; you can be a part of a 400 vehicle parade with a police escort as Shelby American and five decades of Shelbys lead you through historic downtown Carlisle, PA. Thousands of spectators will cheer you on as the streets are closed off for all but parade participants. You will park downtown and enjoy an old fashioned street party complete with hors d’ oeuvres. Local establishments will be open for you to enjoy the best that Carlisle merchants have to offer.

 

Sunday wraps up the event with Carlisle’s awards presentation. Will your Shelby take home a big prize?

 

Carlisle Ford Nationals, Shelby American and Team Shelby Northeast bring you an event 50 years in the making.

 

Buckle up! Team Shelby’s 50th Celebration East, it's going to be a wild of a ride!

Hey! Now you can see what all the excitement is about!

 

Thanks Doug 3 months of hype and you beat me posting on the official thread lol. Just for that i'm letting GP drive your car at the track. Better bring an extra set of tires.it's all good though because Team Shelby northeast will need all the help we can muster to make the official world record. But remember I'm just one small part of the team. John is the big man for the 50th events in the northeast :)

 

Now I wonder what this grand entrance is all about with these "special VIP celebrities" Hmmm any ideas?? LOL

Well I guess I'll start all the questions.....

what if you don't want to track or race your car, and you just want to show up at Carlisle and be part of everything there.... oh yeah, let's just say you want to bring your wife along.... what's the charge for an extra person?

I think that is the 3rd package John describes. Looks like $300 plus the $40 Carlisle registration fee.

:woohoo:

 

You just got this announced in time for me to make my vacation sked! I'm in! :dance:

 

And I'm tracking here. I bagged tracking at the 50th. But this is too close to refuse!

 

Andy let me know what you need from me. I'm willing and able to help you get things going.

Please refrain from booking a hotel room just yet. We have secured an entire hotel at a fantastic rate close by to the Carlisle event. I can assure you that it took quite a bit of higher ups to book this entire hotel for the weekend as Ford weekend in Carlisle sells out many months ahead of time for the entire area. The Team Shelby official hotel info and rate will be released as soon as tickets go on sale in December. In fact we have negitiated to have 24 hour security for the Shelbys at the hotel as we will have the entire property with PLENTY of parking for cars and trailers.

 

This will be "base camp" for Team Shelby members and we want all to be a part of it so please don't book a room until the official hotel info has been made available.

Just trying to figure out the logistics and travel for this event... But is the Track 90+ miles (each way) from Carlisle :shift:

 

If so, then where do most people stay? Nearer the track or the event grounds?

 

 

Yes the track portion is about 90 miles away from Carlisle. There will be an official track hotel close by to the track and an official Carlisle hotel close by the Carlisle portion of it. So logistically you would stay at the track hotel and then Friday AM drive the poker run to the Carlisle Hotel to check in and then go to either the reserved drag strip or straight to the show grounds.

 

Both hotels will be announced in December when tickets go on sale. I can assure you though that we have secured fantastic rates at both hotels and have reserved the ENTIRE Carlisle area hotel so no worries about rooms or rates.

 

I just need to figure out where to get a 2 mile long red carpet for the grand entrance at Carlisle LOL

Peter,

 

Thanks for the offer. We will definitely need some assistance pulling off an event of this magnitude - especially on the track portion. Summit Point is a great course with plenty to challenge novice and seasoned driver alike. I'm looking forward to this event.

might be a dumb question,but those that werent parked with yall last summer, going to say about 50 cars, if they dont pick the TS dropdown option when they register, are they going to be parked with Shelby display this upcoming summer or they going to be in the area where they were last year?

 

 

 

 

Also with the rarest cars, are any Concept cars coming? Would be nice to see the GR-1 (although some reason, im thinking this car was destroyed a little bit ago :shrug: - did see at the 08 Carlisle) Would be cool to see the 04 Cobra Concept if that is still around.

All Shelbys will be in a single area at the midway. The reason it is so important to select the team Shelby drop down when registering is to get an accurate count to lay the area out properly. Don't worry though one area for ALL Shelbys regardless.

 

The display will feature the rarest of rare Shelbys from the Past 50 years.

As far as any special cars, concepts or passengers in those cars well you will just have to attend the VIP event to find out :)

I only want to do the Carlisle events and I will have my wife and son. How would I add an additional person to the package?

 

The packages have been updated for additional person pricing that can be added to each package as needed (track or non track).

 

Please remember though that these tickets are limited so if you are certain you want to add an additional person please do it when you purchase your tickets as they most likely will not be available later.
