The Creek becomes a Blue Oval

The Creek becomes a Blue Oval

Ford and FPV fans to descend on Eastern Creek this weekend.

For the first time the FPV All-Ford Day - something of a must-do for blue oval addicts - is heading to Sydney's Eastern Creek Raceway this Sunday, May 31.

It threatens to be massive. Lured by the tantalising prospect of what will probably be the biggest All-Ford Day this country has seen, 30,000 enthusiasts are expected to pack the raceway.

Supported and sponsored by Ford Performance Vehicles (FPV), the show will feature a display of more than 1000 vehicles, pulling a bigger crowd than the V8 supercars ever managed there. Holden fans are even welcome to check out the brand that has been doing all the winning in the V8 supercar championship series this year...

The only Ford-designated event (car show) in Sydney this year will be based around participation of no fewer than 20 Ford-aligned car clubs.

Of course FPV is on a roll at present, having moved ahead of HSV in short-wheelbase sedan sales. Year to date (to end of April), FPV has sold 425 Falcon-based sedans to HSV's 412 Commodore sedan models.

Admission for adults is hot-value $2 and kids under 12 are free. The family friendly FPV All Ford Day is an alcohol-free event. Gates open at 9am Sunday.
