Fast Ford - - Intro - En­joy the mag! - Jamie King - Ed­i­tor

Wow! The sum­mer of 2018 has proved to be a real scorcher. And that's been fan­tas­tic news for the huge num­ber of ac­tion-packed shows and events the fast Ford scene en­joys through­out the sum­mer months. A car show al­ways feel bet­ter in the sun­shine.

And the Blue Oval gods were clearly smil­ing down on us as we headed to the big­gest event on the cal­en­dar, Ford Fair, this year. Luck­ily, Ford Fair al­ways seems to es­cape poor weather, but this year was real a bel­ter. It was like hav­ing a show abroad, but with all the fa­mil­iar­ity of home - no won­der it's many peo­ple's (mine in­cluded) favourite show of the year.

But as the sun­burn from Sil­ver­stone wears off, there's still plenty more events on the cal­en­dar to come! The next big one for us will be Ford Fest at Santa Pod on Septem­ber 30th - let's just hope the sum­mer sun­shine holds out for a few weeks longer.

Then, fol­low­ing Ford Fest, we will be head­ing back to Sil­ver­stone for TRAX on Oc­to­ber 7th. This is a new one for us, and we will be head­ing up a new 'Ford pad­dock' at the show. Other mag­a­zines spe­cial­is­ing in other (lesser!) mar­ques will also have sim­i­lar dis­plays, so we will need to be on top of our game to show the world that the Blue Oval is still king. And you can help us do that. For an ad­di­tional £3 on top of the ticket price, you can dis­play your fast Ford along­side the fea­ture cars from this very mag­a­zine. Keep your eyes peeled on the web­site and so­cial me­dia for fur­ther an­nounce­ments, but let's make it a show to re­mem­ber, and let the rest of the car world know who re­ally is the best! Not that they'd need any more con­vinc­ing than sim­ply pick­ing up a copy of this very is­sue. In­side this month we've got a bit of ev­ery­thing the Ford scene has to of­fer; stun­ning show cars, Cham­pi­onship-win­ning race cars, awe­some track builds, hugely-pow­er­ful road mon­sters, and even an in­trigu­ing RS Turbo with­out the turbo! Plus, all the show re­ports, club meets, tech guides and buy­ing ad­vice you've come to ex­pect!
