Top 10 rosette at Ford Fair

Top Ten Rosettes

There’s always loads of cool cars on display at Ford Fair, and this year asked our expert team of editors to comb through all the cars on display at the show looking for their top ten fast Fords. They will be on the hunt for just ten of the very best cars to catch their eye, and each one will receive a rosette to commend their efforts.

Special Display

The club scene is a huge part of Ford Fair, but not all fantastic Fords are part of a club. Fear not, these stunning machines still get to show-off, forming the Special Display. Here, you’ll find a diverse mix of beautiful Blue Ovals on show, from Ford owners that belong to wider car clubs in general, members of groups that aren’t displaying elsewhere at the show, or simply mavericks who are happy doing their own thing and going solo. This display gives those owners a chance to show off their fast Fords that would otherwise be resigned to the general car park! And cars like these deserve to be a part of the show!

Drift Kings

At the renowned home of racing, you can watch these drift kings push their skills and vehicles in pursuit of greatness. They’ll be navigating through legendary corners such as Brooklands and Luffield – all whilst reaching speeds over 100mph on Wellington Straight. This is an event not just for petrolheads but anyone who appreciates awe-inspiring automotive skill – stay tuned for more news on driver lineups so that you don’t miss it!
