The biggest and best event in the Ford calendar is this weekend at Silverstone, and for 2018 it promises to be even more action-packed than ever before!
From concours Cortinas to Feisty Fiestas there’s an awesome line up of blue oval action so read on for the top 10 reasons you need to be at Silverstone this weekend for Ford Fair 2018 sponsored by mountune.
1. FORD CLUB CAR DISPLAY SPONSORED BY MOUNTUNE
Car Clubs have been at the heart of Ford Fair, and 2018 will be no different. You can expect to see hundreds of different clubs on show at this year’s show, including various model-specific clubs, regional and national branches, online clubs and many more!
2. UK’S FASTEST FORDS
Invited as special guest by the Fast Ford team, these very special Blue Ovals are, quite simply, some of the fastest Fords you’ll find in the UK! They’ll be strutting their stuff around the Silverstone circuit in their very own track sessions and when they’re not, you’ll be able to get up close and personal with these amazing machines on the Fast Ford stand.
3. 50 YEARS OF THE RS
Over the last 50 years, the legendary RS stable has gone on to produce some of the most successful motorsport machines and the most desirable road cars the world has ever seen. At Ford Fair 2018 visitors will be transported through a 50-year timeline showing the evolution of the famous Rallye Sport brand.
4. THE TURBOSMART SPRINT TEST
Have you got the speed? The TurboSmart Sprint Test returns to 2018 and promises to be one of the most heated competitions of the day. It’s a simple test of flat line speed against fellow enthusiasts with the quickest on the day winning the 2018 Sprint Test trophy. With the option of either three runs at £10, or if you want to keep trying your luck you can go for unlimited runs for just £20!
5. MERCHANDISE AND SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS
Make sure you visit the official Ford Fair retail stand where they’ll be some magazine deals, special show only subscription offers to Fast Car, Fast Ford and Classic Ford as well as a whole host of Ford Fair merchandise including backpacks, keyrings, baseballs caps, mugs and t-shirts to name just a few!
6. SILVERSTONE TRACK TIME
This is your chance to take to the newly resurfaced asphalt of Silverstone National Circuit, the home of British Motorsport and take your own car out on track in our 20 minute ‘Ford Only’ sessions. We have sessions to suit all abilities, so anyone can get out on the tarmac (subject to availability). The 2018 Track Time has been kindly sponsored by Nankang Tyres.
7. RETAIL VILLAGE
Ford Fair has one of the largest congregation of Ford traders, specialists, exhibitors and autojumblers in Europe! If you need that upgrade, that exhaust or those rims the retail village is bound to have what you’re looking for. Headline sponsors mountune will also be bringing along special show offers, the mountune garage and a selection of test cars showcasing the latest and greatest products available for each of them
8. #ASK THEBOSS
Chairman and Managing Director of Ford UK Andy Barratt will return to Ford Fair 2018 and visitors will be able to ask him their pressing Ford questions. He will be taking part in Q&A sessions throughout the day in the Live Action Arena and well as open “meet the boss” sessions. To ask Andy a question tweet @fordfair using the #asktheboss.
9. FORD AT FORD FAIR
Ford will be bringing the very latest members of the Ford Performance range, including the mighty Mustang Bullitt and the New Transit Custom from MS-RT. No Ford presence at FordFair would be complete without the Live Action Arena and the high-octane Ford Live shows from Paul Swift and his team. Plus visitors can take on “The Leap”, where visitors can jump from a four-metre high platform into thin air and free-fall into a giant airbag!
10. MAGAZINE DISPLAYS
The biggest magazines in the Ford tuning scene, Fast Ford and Classic Ford, will be out in force at Ford Fair 2018… the stands will be packed full of past, present, and future magazine feature cars as well as anniversary display, home-built heroes and more.
There’ll be plenty of other features as well, so if you love Fords make sure you join the army of Blue Oval fans hitting Silverstone for Ford Fair on 5th August.
