Run What Ya Brung

You don’t just have to watch the show from the sidelines at FordFest; far from it – you can join in and be a fundamental part of the action! And the best way to do that is take part in the fearsome strip action that will dominate the centre of the show throughout the day.

That’s because FordFest hosts a non-stop Ford-only ‘Run What Ya Brung’ session throughout the day, starting at 9:00am and continuing until the show closes at 5:00pm! That means showgoers have plenty of time to jump in their own Blue Ovals and hit the drag strip to put them to the test on the iconic raceway.

The mission is simple: accelerate from a standing start and cover the quarter-mile in the shortest time possible. You will be awarded a full print out from each run showing your performance figures, including reaction time, a host of incremental times, the terminal speed, and the all-important elapsed time.

For £20 you’ll get four runs on the legendary drag strip, which you’ll need as it can become very addictive! You can use these runs at any time when the strip is open, and if once you’ve used all four runs you fancy another go, you can simply go and grab some more for another £20!

To book, head to the RWYB sign-on office from 09:00am onwards, along with a valid UK driving licence, and sign up for a day of strip action!
