Organised by the team behind Fast Ford and Classic Ford magazines, FordFest will return for the forth year in 2018 and is set to feature thousands of Fords with a following, from Anglias to RS’s, Cortinas to Capris and Mondeos to Mustangs. FordFest is fast becoming one of the highlights of the Ford calendar, as it’s a great opportunity for fans of the marque to interact, whether they’re into new Fords, old Fords or, quite often, both. It’s a truly interactive show, and one that is guaranteed to feature as a must-attend in any Ford fans diary.
FordFest takes place at Santa Pod Raceway, Airfield Road, Podington, Wellingborough, Northants NN29 7XA. As Santa Pod Raceway is in a rural location, there are no direct links to public transport. Wellingborough is the nearest town and taxis can be found outside the train station.
