John Grose will be paying tribute to the fantastic range of fast Fords, past and present, at its Fast Ford event on Ransomes Europark on Sunday from 10am to 2pm.

Ford has a great heritage of performance vehicles, from the 120bhp Escort RS1600 of the 1970s, the Sierra RS Cosworth launched in 1986, the Focus RS Mark 1 in 2002, all the way up to the Focus RS Mark 3 available today.

This is alongside a number of ST, ST170, Zetec S, the latest ST Line models and, of course, the iconic Mustang GT.

Visitors to the state-of-the-art FordStore showroom in Ipswich on Sunday will be invited to view the very latest Ford performance range, including the Focus RS, Mustang GT, Focus ST and ST Line range, and have the rare opportunity to see a number of classic Ford Performance vehicles kindly displayed together by their owners.
