The 2017 FordFair sees mountune as the headline sponsor for the fifth consecutive year and as the biggest Ford show in Europe, it’s one that the whole team look forward to, almost as much as the 20,000 visitors that typically attend. mountune’s stand will be bigger and better than ever for 2017 – we’ve got loads planned, but here’s a small taster of what you can expect.
Followers of the 2017 TOCA British Touring Car Championship will no doubt be familiar with the name Mat Jackson. Mat is campaigning the Team Shredded Wheat Motorbase Performance-prepared Ford Focus in this year’s championship, powered by the somewhat more potent mountune version of Ford’s EcoBoost engine. Mat will be on hand to sign autographs, pose for pictures, and will be out on track in some mountune powered Ford’s throughout the day.
The mountune Fleet
The mountune engineering team have built up quite a collection of development/test cars over the past few years, and as always there will be a selection of them on the show stand to showcase the latest and greatest products available for each of them. As well our mighty Mk3 Focus RS sporting the latest power upgrades (amongst other new additions), we’ll also be bringing along our MR410 Focus ST, MR265 Fiesta ST and Mustang RTR.
Exclusive Track Session
For those of you that have booked track time, you will have the chance to tackle the awesome curves of the famous Silverstone circuit in your own car, along with dozens of other mountune owners. Out on the race track, you’ll be able to put your Ford through its paces without the worry of sticking to the speed limits, and with everything from the little MP135 Fiesta Zetec-S, right up to the hugely powerful Focus RS M380 welcome to take part, you’ll be in very good company. There may even be a BTCC driver out there enjoying some of the mountune fleet of test cars…
If you fancy picking up some nicely discounted official mountune parts for your beloved Blue Oval, or just a cool new T-Shirt and baseball cap, then Ford Fair is definitely the place to be! In previous years there have been some huge discounts off most of the mountune product range, with everything from hoodies, beanies and Smug Mugs, all the way up to exhaust systems and even upgrade kits heavily discounted. The queues seem to get longer every year, so but don’t panic, we’ll be bringing more tills, more staff and more stock than ever before!
As previously mentioned, not only is the famous mountune Garage back for another year, it has doubled in size to meet the huge demand for the free fitting service. The team of mountune technicians have wheeled their tool boxes all the way to Silverstone loaded with everything they need to transform your car with selected mountune goodies that you can buy on the day. Not only that, they won’t even charge you for the privilege… Yep, that’s right, FREE fitting of all pre-selected products on the day – subject to availability and workshop space. See you on the mountune stand at 9am, Sunday August 6th!
The weather was LA perfect and enthusiasts had their car's spotless for the Tony Harmer photo studio. The event was action packed with RC cars, video games, food trucks, custom T Shirt studio, and just people generally hanging out. Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin JR were also out signing autographs and checking out the rides.
mountune USA were invited to display our RS and the crowd pleasing 250bhp 1968 mountune powered Escort. It was a great event promoting everything awesome about the ST line and we are looking forward to the next Ford Performance ST Meetup... hopefully sooner than later.
