Causeway Coast Ford Fair Huge Success

39 Replies

Over 400 of the finest examples of classic, performance and modern Fords descended on Portrush’s West Bay for another Causeway Coast Ford Fair.  With this on offer and temperatures in the mid 20s and clear blue skies it was no wonder that thousands of visitors turned up on the day.

There is a great range of owners clubs within the Ford fraternity here and they were all out in force, from the Capri Owners Club to the RS Owners it was a sight to behold.

It was great to see the manufacturer and franchises supporting the event.  The new Fiesta ST was unveiled during the show, and the dealers had brought along many new cars across the range including some stunning Mustangs and a special edition Focus RS.

It was great to see this show, now in its 14th year growing in size and popularity and long may it continue.   Congratulations to Lawrence Doherty who won Car of the show with his 1980 RS 2000 Mk2.

| I’m working in the afternoon, should it be well under way by lunchtime?
Not really generally. They say all cars to be there by noon but they still let cars in after that. Not really on the go properly until 1.00 at least.

No,cars can’t be moved in the show area until 16.00 for insurance reasons.
