Las Vegas, Nevada – The Team Shelby Club, a new club for all vehicles built by Shelby, has announced it has signed up over 2,000 members in just three months. The club, which is authorized by Shelby Automobiles Inc. and recognizes vehicles including 2006 and newer Shelby-based Mustangs, was officially launched on January 11, 2008, Carroll Shelby’s 85th birthday.
Team Shelby Club becomes the only club officially recognized by Shelby Automobiles, following Shelby’s termination of its license with the Shelby American Automobile Club.
“Shelby Autos supports Team Shelby because it gives real enthusiasts real ways to employ their cars,” said Carroll Shelby. “I’m pleased, but not surprised by the strong response to this exciting new club. While the club was originally designed for owners and fans of 2005 and newer Shelbys based on the Ford Mustang, the influx of members who own and love vintage Shelby vehicles is proof that the concept was long overdue.”
The club distributes newsletters and is planning numerous events, including Ford and Shelby tours, a 40th anniversary GT500KR reunion, track days and other events. For more information, visit TeamShelby.com.
