American SpeedFest, the greatest celebration of American motoring, music and racing this side of the Atlantic, was staged at Kent’s Brands Hatch for the third successive year on Sunday 7 June 2015.
SpeedFest has quickly established itself as a popular day out for all the family, and exciting new additions to the event ensured that it was bigger and better than ever in 2015.
American SpeedFest brings to Britain authentic US-style stock car racing with the only NASCAR race series sanctioned outside North America, theNASCAR Whelen Euro Series, plus the thunderous American classic muscle cars of Bernie’s V8s. There’s also displays of more than 1,000 American cars, bikes and trucks, including famous Hollywood movie cars; monster truck shows and passenger rides; stunt shows on the ground and in the air; live music, with bands and tribute acts performing favourite American pop and rock songs; food themed to delight with Tastes from the States; and a Children’s Playzone featuring bouncy castles, face-painting, and entertainers.
Haynes Ford took their newly restored 1965 Classic Mustang to the event, along with a Fiesta ST and some merchandise relating to Performance vehicles. A small team of staff manned the event trailer and mingled with passing visitors. There was a lot of interest in the restoration and every opportunity was shared to advertise the Mustang Revealed event which would be held at the dealership the following weekend. A lot of requests to see a UK Mustang were noted - with promises made that Haynes Ford would be at the same event in 2016 with a UK RHD Mustang.
