What Can You See At The International Ford Show?

There will be a variety of things available to see and do at the event. A host of standard, restored, and modified Fords will be on show as well as a series of new and exciting Fords including the new right-hand drive V8 Mustang and the Focus RS. The show will include a wide array of Fiestas to mark the 40th anniversary of the famous Ford. To celebrate the golden anniversary of the Essex V6 engine, a display of Fords that hosted the engine will also be on show.

Who Will Be At The International Ford Show?

Fifth Gear presenter and former Formula One, Le Mans and Touring Car driver Tiff Needell will be at the Show on Saturday the 30th. The former Top Gear presenter will be on stage talking about his motoring life and his Ford memories. On Sunday the 1st of May show goers will get a chance to hear from Ant Anstead, the restoration expert from Channel 4’s ‘For the Love of Cars’. The renowned designer will be talking about the MK1 Escort that was restored on the show, as well answering questions from the audience.

You Can Take Part!

There are a number of ways you can get involved in the International Ford Show 2016. Show goers are able to park in an exclusive Ford Only Parking area, although it’s on a first come, first served basis. In addition the International Ford Show and Wheel Whores have partnered up and will be awarding a Wheel Whores trophy and £60 goodie bag to the car with the best wheels - a team of judges will be scouting the event throughout the day to find their winner. You can even sell a classic Ford at the Barons Ford only auction. For all of those either attending or exhibiting, we’re sure you’ll have a fantastic day.
