In addition to allowing journos to take solo hot laps in the GT500, Ford brought professional driver Billy Johnson to Las Vegas Motor Speedway to show us how things get done.

In the hands of a professional driver, the GT500 — in Track mode with both the traction control and stability control switched off — is just as balanced and controllable as it is for those of us using the additional electronic help. The GT500 still puts the power down smoothly out of corners, and Johnson drifted through several in intentionally-induced slides, maintaining balance and control.
