Ford Fest 2015
13/09/2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Ford Fest 2015 is a brand new event for lovers of Ford cars, taking place on Sunday September 13th at Santa Pod Raceway in Northamptonshire.
Ford Fest promises a celebration of Fords of all ages, classic or new, standard or modified, and from all corners of the Ford Scene, with club displays and private entries welcome in the show and shine competition.
Ford Fest 2015 – What’s on?
Some of the star cars from two of the UK’s biggest Ford car enthusiast magazines, Fast Ford and Classic Ford, will be among the exhibits, from immaculately restored classics through to the fastest and most extremely modified examples.
The organisers are aiming for a festival atmosphere, boasting a substantial retail village in the paddock, plus kids’ entertainment and a funfair creating an environment that will be fun for all of the family.
The world-famous Santa Pod drag strip will be open throughout the day, with visitors encouraged to enter their favourite Fords into a ‘Run What Ya Brung’ competition. For a cost of just £20, showgoers will be able to compete against each other, with four runs on the famous US-style quarter–mile drag strip.
It won’t just be Ford cars on the strip, Santa Pod will be wheeling out its amazing Fireforce 3 Jet Car. The famous dragster has a Pratt and Whitney engine from a Sikorsky CH-54A Skycrane Helicopter, developing approximately 10,000bhp, as it guzzles its way through around 120 litres of aviation fuel per appearance on track, which lasts only 6 seconds. With 5,500lb/ft of torque to fire down the quarter-mile strip, don’t blink or you’ll miss it.
