FordFest 2018 is pretty close now and if you’re still making your mind up whether to go or not, check out the list below. It’s going to be a good one!
Get your hands on some VERY cool stuff
FordFest is THE place to be to get your hands on pretty much anything you need for your blue-oval beauty. The Retail Village is a haven for all things Ford, whether it’s some brand new tech or some tiny trim to complete your build, and we’d recommend setting aside some time to have a wander round.
Get on track
It’s always cool to take your car onto a race track but with Santa Pod having a brand new strip surface, there’s no better time to get involved.
The iconic drag strip has been re-surfaced and if you’ve never experienced the thrill of charging up the ¼ mile strip at full throttle then we strongly recommend you do. Nothing beats the thrill of putting your foot to the floor in front of thousands of people and with the new surface, you’ll see some pretty damn quick times posted.
See the weird and wonderful
Okay, this might sounds obvious but if you want to feast your eyes on Ford’s then there really is no better place. From the downright wacky to the jaw-droppingly cool, there is pretty much everything you can imagine.
There’s thousands of cars on display and if it’s got a Ford badge, you’ll find it somewhere!
Celebrate the Cosworth
The Saphire Cosworth may not be the most heralded Ford known to man but it is still a very cool car and one worth celebrating. To commemorate 30 years since its inception, the guys at FordFest have gathered 30 of the most interesting Cosworth’s over the years for a special display.
If you’re a Ford buff then it’s one to visit.
If you find yourself at one of Europe’s biggest Ford events the chances are that you are a fan of the brand, so why not head over to the magazine stands and check out some of the offers for Classic Ford and Fast Ford?
They’re offering 13 issues for just £26 and there’s loads of merchandise too, so it’s worth checking it out and seeing what bargains you can pick up.
Show and Shine
A car show staple but always worth your time. The Show and Shine paddock sees 20 downright beautiful cars displayed together with their owners on hand to chat about their pride and joy, and the FordFest judges have the unenviable task of choosing an overall winner.
Pop along, take a look and have a chat!
See Fast Ford and Classic Ford come to life
Both Fast Ford and Classic Ford sit right at the heart of FordFest and they bring the heat every year. Their display stands are always a show highlight, bringing some of the finest old school cars alongside a selection of up and coming feature cars for you to take a good look at.
You can win a car – really!
You turn up with one car and leave with two, that doesn’t sound too bad does it? At FordFest 2018 you could be leaving as the proud owner of a Mk1 2.0-litre GLX 3-speed automatic Ford Mondeo and all it’s going to cost is you a whopping £1.
The Mondeo recently completed a trek across Europe and came back in perfect working order, so it’d be a pretty cool addition to any garage.
Ford Fest, at Santa Pod on September 30th and tickets are now available to book online via the official website, at Ford Fest, with a range of camping and advanced purchase options available.
