Hook up with the Mustang Club down there and also check in with Orlando Mustang.  Hit some of the Local Cruise Ins to as someone will surely know when the Track Events take place.

There's a popular performance driving group  here in FL called PDG - Performance Driving Group.

Their next event is at Sebring, June 17. http://performancedrivinggroup.com/product/june-17th-2018-sebring-international-raceway/

This is a good way to get introduced to driving on a race track. I race a 1965 GT350R clone with SCCA, HSR, and SVRA. I'm an instructor for PDG. Sebring is the closest dedicated racetrack to Tampa.

There is also The Firm, up north of Gainesville.

Been there a few times, planning to go with a group of gt350 and Gt350R's around Sept 1, not sure of detail yet as their schedule is not published yet

Wish I would have seen this post sooner. We are in Orlando but put on a fantastic event at Daytona every year in December. Unfortunately it was 2 weeks ago. I also attend Sebring and hope to make the Firm soon. Check out Motorsports Reg.com if you have not already. A great resource.

That is funny. I used to live in Tampa,  and yeah,  certain sections of Fowler Ave are places that if you are cruising your Shelby then some Honda Civic or Subaru will pull up beside you and start revving ........
