SILVERSTONE, England - The legendary Mustang turns 50 this year – a milestone that’s being celebrated in style at this summer’s Silverstone Classic event in England (25-27 July).
The event has been chosen by the Mustang Owners Club for its official golden anniversary homage to the most celebrated of all American muscle cars.
Mustang will be in the spotlight with numerous displays, parades and demonstrations.
Highlight of the weekend festival will be two races on the full Silverstone Grand Prix circuit featuring a record number of competition-prepared Mustangs from round the globe.
“We are hoping to attract a total of around 25 racing Mustangs and that will be the biggest gathering ever assembled on one grid,” said Rachel Bailey, events manager at Masters Historic Racing. “News about the Mustang’s 50th birthday bash at Silverstone is stirring up interest worldwide. We already have cars being shipped from the States and are also expecting several other significant entries from overseas. To see so many amazing Mustangs in action is going to be a really fitting tribute to such an iconic car.”
The Mustang will not be the only eye-catching Ford model making an appearance at Silverstone, representing the golden era of saloon car racing will be several Ford Falcons and Galaxies.
