Ford & Friends is having its 10th anniversary in 2020. This wonderful concept to celebrate motorsport by a group of like-minded enthusiasts, originated 10 years ago during discussions between Louis Powell from Cape Town and Graham Twiss (RIP) of Humansdorp, over a few liquid refreshments.
Over the years this event has been supported by some of the Top drivers in SA Motorsport such as Sarel vd Merwe, Mike Briggs, Willie Hepburn, Robbi Smith, Larry Wilford, Paulo Cavalieri, Marcel Angel and the late Koos Swanepoel and Peter Gough to name just a few.
The 2020 Ford & Friends will be hosted by Border Motorsport Club and is planned to take place at the Historic East London Grand Prix circuit on June 27. Based on our previous visit in 2015 this event promises to be even bigger and better than before. To show our support for East London and Border Motorsport Club we will be inviting various other clubs to be part of this Mega event.
The format of the event needs to be finalized, but at this stage is looking as follows:
1. Historics + Classics + KZN Retro’s
2. V8 Master Mustangs + Supercars
3. WPMC GTI Challenge
4. Sports@GT cars
5. BMW e36 Cup
6. Modified Saloons + Clubman’s
7. All Ford Race
8. All Comers Race
9. Fastest Pinto challenge
10. Fastest Kent challenge
Friday before the event will be open practice, with the necessary festivities and meet the drivers on Friday night.
Please be so kind as to present this invitation to your drivers/members and be part of this great event.
