One Ford performance vehicle after another gathered at the back gate parking lot of the airport. Mustangs, Focus’, a Fiesta and even a Raptor filled the parking lot as the drivers registered with the VFR staff at the gate. Colored wrist bands allowed the drivers onto the active runway with their cars and the parade of Fords was led to the event. More than a dozen VFR vehicle owners and several prospective owners took to the autocross course Friday, August, 14th, 2015 at the Camarillo Airport in Camarillo, Calif.
A brand new VFR Focus ST, Mustang GT, Ecoboost Mustang, Fiesta ST, and Fusion were already staged for those that wanted to get behind the wheel of a new VFR vehicle around the track. The VFR booth had all new tees and lanyards, as well as goodie bags for all in attendance. The Wilwood display showcased their beautiful Wilwood equipped Classic mustang which led the first group around the cones on a parade lap with a backdrop of landing aircraft. So much horsepower, so much excitement! After a brief drivers meeting, the first group put their racing helmets on and the sounds of after-market exhausts filled the air.
After several groups had the opportunity to take to the track and put down their best times, the barbeque grill was ready and serving delicious burgers and sausages. Many in attendance compared their driving experiences around the course in the various VFR vehicles. Each had their favorites and took to the track again for a few more laps to finish out the day.
This was the first autocross event for VFR and proved to be so successful, VFR plans to hold these events several times per year. For more information on this VFR Owner’s perk, please contact Vista Ford today!
