They're planning a huge English Ford/Vintage race weekend.
They're trying to get all of the big names there - Bob Winklemann,
Peter Quenet,Alan Moffat,plus others.
This is a world-wide event - there's even people coming from
Austalia/New Zealand.
It sounds like,if there's enough interest,that we could have an
English Ford "car corral",with all the "usual suspects".
Who's up for this?

I'll post more details as it gets closer.

Howdy Gang,
Yes it is in fact 2015. We needed a big head start to make an event of this nature worthwhile. and yes, there is nothing on the website as of now.

Large kudos to Norm Murdock who stepped up after i told him of my intent to do this event, and has already helped out a great deal.

For those not in the know, Waterford Hills is a club owned and operated track founded in 1958. A 1.5 mile track full of twists, turns, hills etc. It offers 80% total track viewing from many vantage points, making it a great spectator track, not to mention the challenge for the drivers.

IF there was ever a time to make a gathering of Enfo fans this could be it.
Also in the area is the Woodward Dream Cruise. If you have never attended, the best time to visit the area is the 2-3 weeks BEFORE the cruise. The day of the cruise is actually the worst day to attend. Not to forget the Henry Ford Museum.

The event will take place the last full weekend in July.
We run the event like a slice of sports car racing in the sixties / seventies.

Cheap to get in, parking on the grounds. ( you can walk the whole grounds with ease ) National Anthems, Announcers, Victory laps, etc.
Free camping.

We would be thrilled and honored to have a parking lot full of ENFO, to match on what we feel will be a good paddock full to match.


So there is plenty of time. I need the time as well, as i have 2 races cars to overhaul / build. ( aka get off my ass )

Any questions feel free to ask.
Hope we see all there!

Cheers,
Joel Hershoren,
Waterford Hills Vintage Event Chair.

Bob,
I think that means i am storing the race car you sold me.
She is doing fine . Living in a dry garage,,,i started to take her apart, and stopped at the point of "common sense"
( Ha-ha. )

She is good, she has new shoes, and a new wardrobe on the way.
