FEB. 20 SVRA Car Show At Sebring Draws Classics And Club Corrals

While the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association is all about getting vintage racecars back on the track, SVRA events often include a car show and car corrals for clubs as part of a high-octane race weekend. That’s exactly the case with the 2021 Sebring Speedtour set for February 18-21 at Florida’s Sebring International Raceway. The SVRA is hosting a car show on Saturday, February 20, open to all classic, vintage exotic and collectible cars as well as vintage motorcycles. What’s more, all car clubs are welcome and will receive their own car corral. Each $45 Car Show Registration will receive a pair of weekend passes (Saturday and Sunday) to the Vintage & Trans Am Auto Race, plus touring on the Sebring International raceway in your show car. Entrants will also get VIP parking and full access to the racecar paddock. Fans will enjoy the car show and hundreds of vintage and even historic racecars and the Trans Am series as they roar around the fabled 3.74-mile Sebring International Raceway.

Rumor has it that this year, Ford CEO Jim Farley will be on-track – so Ford Performance fans should have plenty to cheer about on race weekend. To register, visit https://speedtour.net/st/?lib=product&pid=608&cat=11. Or for more information, you can email tc@svra.com or call (863) 698-8620.

Time to Register your Club or Ford Fan Facebook Group with Ford Performance Club ConnectFord Performance Club Connect Homepage

By now you should have heard about a cool Ford Performance initiative called “Club Connect” that can help all Ford and Mustang enthusiasts get connected with both Ford Motor Company and each other. Only those clubs who register with the program are eligible for no-cost promotion and support from Ford Performance, so you owe it to members of your Mustang or Ford vehicle club or online forum to register and appear on our Ford enthusiast club map. All it takes is a visit to www.FordPerformanceClubConnect.com and a single click on the “Register Your Club” link. Once you fill out the form and hit “Submit,” you’ll be notified within just a few days of your acceptance in Ford Performance Club Connect -- it’s that simple, and it’s FREE!

The primary goal of our Ford Performance Club Connect program is to get everyone to register their club – at no cost – and get themselves on our Ford enthusiast group map so that we can all connect with each other. Once there, you’ll be able to see all of the other clubs and groups who have registered in your region – not just Mustang clubs, but ALL Ford vehicle organizations. And now we’d like to invite all of you who are part of any Ford vehicle Facebook Group to register with Club Connect, too. Why? Because connecting your Facebook Group with more owners and fans makes your group more worthwhile – and registering with Club Connect will link your online group with participants who may never have known that your group exists.

The value in all of this is that whenever you plan a club or group activity, you can see what other clubs and groups are in your area that you may wish to contact and ask to join you at a show or event. It also allows Ford Performance to see all the clubs and groups in a certain area, so that when we are coming to town or planning a special Ford event in your city or state, you and your club members can be contacted to participate.

It takes only a few minutes for a club principal or board member to register your club and establish a direct link for your members to Ford Performance. And now, you can also register your group and logo with Ford Brand Licensing all in the same process. Have a product or parts question that you want answered? Wish you could get some free club event promotion in our weekly “Fast News” e-blast that goes out to more than a quarter-million Ford fans each Thursday? Looking for event coverage for your show in the Enthusiasts section of FordPerformance.com? Hoping you could find a cool Ford goodie-bag or door-prize item, or a banquet guest speaker? How about requesting on-site show support with an appearance by our Ford Performance Meet & Greet tent, along with FREE Mustang poster giveaways for all show attendees? Individual requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, but they can ONLY be awarded to clubs who are registered.

So go to www.FordPerformanceClubConnect.com and click on the “Find Your Club” link to see if you are on the map. If not, then act now to register your Ford-based club or Facebook Group so that you can join this special program -- all backed and supported by a real enthusiast staff managed by Ford Performance. If you have questions or want more info, you and your members can always email us at ClubHub@Ford.com, or can simply call our Ford Performance Info Center, toll-free during regular business hours, at 1-800-FORD-788 (800-367-3788).

So what are you waiting for? Get online and make sure you’re connected. Then plan to enjoy your performance Ford later this year so that you can discover the fun and all of the friendly people involved in the world of Ford Performance. We’re sure that being connected with each other and with Ford will make your ownership experience even more enjoyable!
