FordFest, which is now in its second year, saw very strong attendance and over 1,700 club cars on display, and looks set to be even bigger and better in 2016.
Taking place on Sunday September 18th, next year’s event will feature a huge display area, with a focus on Fords both classic and modern.
Organised by the team behind Fast Ford and Classic Ford magazines, the season closer, which has a theme of Classic v Modern, is set to feature thousands of Fords with a following, from Anglias to RS’s, Cortinas to Capris and Mondeos to Mustangs.
On top of the traditional static and club displays, the drag strip itself will be active, with a Ford-themed ‘Run what Ya Brung’ event taking place for show visitors – tickets to take part are just £10 for camping visitors, or £20 for four runs on the day.
As well as the ‘Run What Ya Brung’, the drag strip will also play host to Fireforce 3, Santa Pod’s very own Jet Car, capable of a sub-six second quarter mile and speeds in excess of 300mph.
A substantial retail village, full of new and used parts, clothing and souvenirs is also a major highlight, as is the party atmosphere of the event itself, with camping available from midday on Saturday September 17, plus a bar and live entertainment.
More details on the show, including some as-yet undisclosed highlights, will be announced nearer the time, or via the event’s website, Facebook and Twitter streams.
FordFest is part of a family of Ford events celebrating Europe’s love for the famous blue oval brand. Its sister shows are the International Ford Show at Sandown Park (April 30th-May 1st), Classic Ford Show at Santa Pod (June 5th) and the big one, Ford Fair, which takes place at Silverstone Circuit on August 7th.
Tickets are now available to book online via the official FordFest website, with a range of camping and advanced purchase options available.
