BRASELTON, Georgia, March, 17, 2021 --- Bobby Krug has completed his fourth school with Skip Barber Racing School. In the latest program, Krug got behind the wheel of the Ford Mustang GT at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia.
The 3-Day Mustang GT program follows a similar timeline as the 3-Day Formula. Since the Mustang utilizes a 5-speed manual transmission, there are exercises added to teach students the art of heel-toe downshifting.
On the first day, Krug was behind the wheel of one of Skip Barber's Roush Performance Stage 3 Mustangs instead of the traditional school car. With the first day being only lead-follow sessions, there was no benefit to the difference in cars. Krug was quick to learn the layout, having spent hours on the sim prior to the program.
The second and third days were completed in the traditional, 325HP Mustang GT. Krug showed impressive car control and speed especially with changing conditions as rain would come and go throughout the week.
"Road Atlanta was a bucket list track for me," Krug said. "The track is so fast and flowy yet technical enough to keep you on your toes, I'd love to come back in the dry to run it with more speed."
