LAS VEGAS – Jan. 7, 2015 – Team Shelby and Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., have planned to make its 8th Annual Shelby Bash the ultimate performance event in 2015 with celebrities and activities in Gardena, Calif., and Las Vegas. From March 5-8, Shelby will honor the 50th anniversary of its 427 Shelby Cobra, Ford Shelby GT350 and FIA World Championship.

 

“Our goal is to make this year’s Shelby Bash the best in its eight year history as we celebrate such monumental anniversaries,” said Tracey Smith, Team Shelby National Director. “Carroll Shelby’s vision for Team Shelby was to create a community where people could enjoy their cars together the way he and Shelby American intended. We’ll continue to foster this comradery at the Shelby Bash as we honor the heritage and move forward with new high performance vehicles and programs.”

 

The Bash will begin on March 5 with a “Snake Pitt Gathering” in Gardena, followed by the Kick-Off Run to Las Vegas on the 6th with a World Championship party at Shelby American’s Heritage Center upon arrival. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with track opportunities in Shelby’s, car shows, poker runs and special exhibits. Activities will be at the Mandalay Bay Resort, Shelby American’s Las Vegas facility and the Spring Mountain Ranch track.

 

The event will also include road racing, parties, a rally and factory tours. Attendees will be invited to listen to speakers from Ford Motor Company and Shelby American, as well as luminaries such as Bob Bondurant, Allen Grant, Peter Brock, John Morton, Charlie Agapiou, Ted Sutton, Rick Titus and Chuck Cantwell, who was instrumental in the design and production of 1960 era Shelby cars.

 

The first Team Shelby Bash in 2008 was a celebration of Mr. Shelby’s 85th birthday. Since then, this annual event has grown in scope and popularity.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for enthusiasts to enjoy a weekend with some of the most prominent names in the automobile industry,” said Smith. “We’re packing these three days with spectacular activities. From track events to parties, this Bash will be unforgettable. This is an opportunity to enjoy some fun, Shelby Style!”

 

Carroll Shelby founded Team Shelby in 2008 to give everyone the opportunity to live the same high octane lifestyle that he enjoyed. Ownership of a Shelby vehicle is not required, only an enthusiasm for the brand and ‘living large.” With eight regions in the United States and chapters overseas, the officially sanctioned club provides a number of key benefits including:

 

• Exclusive access to “Members Only” areas of the club web site (www.teamshelby.com)

• Official Team Shelby Membership Kit (T-shirt, hat, travel mug, club sticker, lanyard, pen and more)

• First news on all Shelby products and vehicles

• Invitations to special events

• Annual Shelby publication

• Monthly discounts on Shelby products

 

Registration for the Shelby Bash will open on January 16, 2015, on teamshelby.com. Updates will be released on the website as they become available. Space is limited to the first 200 registrants.

If you are thinking of flying get tickets early as NASCAR weekend in Vegas will be hard to work around-also for hotels. I just looked and airline tickets are quite a bit more than usual to Vegas so that's why. what a weekend for car people!

Yes those are the correct dates.

 

More detailed Bash info will be coming in a press release. Michael just wanted to get the dates out there for the folks that have to schedule vacation days from work.

The only reason I questioned it was because it seemed odd with things ending on a Monday.

This way no one is fighting the traffic back on southbound I-15 on a Sunday afternoon (plus add a Nascar race).

 

Monday = no traffic,

 

Wed to Sun or Thurs to Mon, same amount of days off...

Traffic, yeah I remember that. We don't have to deal with things like that out here in Kansas.
