Mustang fever to grip the Silverstone Classic in 2014

| 6 Dec 2013

A massive celebration of the Ford Mustang is planned for next year's Silverstone Classic festival.

Marking the 50th anniversary of the pony car icon, there will be tributes on and off track from 25-27 July.

As well as being chosen by the Mustang Owners' Club as the venue for its official celebrations, there will be dedicated displays and parades  showcasing all five generations of the model.

Most exciting, though, will be a series of 50-car grids that, although not quite exclusively Mustang, do promise to be dedicated only to American big-bangers.

Event director Nick Wigley said: “The Mustang has been in continuous production for 50 years and has become a global icon among sports cars.

"We are thrilled that the Mustang Owners' Club will be holding its official birthday festivities at the Classic and, with what we expect to be a record number of Mustangs racing on the track, it’s going to be another fantastic celebration at Silverstone.”
