      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Pop-ups

    Hi Freddy42 We just went into settings and checked that it shouldn't be showing. Sorry about this
  2. Only to the toilet after those long queues
  3. Great to meet all of you at the Ford Fair, and well worth the wait to get in, although not so sure if it had been raining all day! Never seen queue as bad as that before...almost on par with Le Mans on race day and they have queues that any Russian would be envious of. I totally believe the reason is that they opened the show an hour later as last year you could slip in early and set up before the majority rocked up at 7.00 and then stagger the queue throughout the morning...worked okay, don't know why they changed it? anyway, great day and great to chat to some FOC members....see you next year!
  4. Hi Trevor,

    I was informed that my posts were against the policies of the club. I totally understand that.But the reason i posted it is because of the age that we are in .where buglars enter your home take your keys and drive off with your car.This immobiliser stops that. I can appreciate its part of our business but i only want your members to keep and enjoy their cars.



  5. Found this info in the FAQs on the Ford Fair site.... Will the tickets and passes be sent to me? Both the tickets and vehicle passes will be print at home. On booking you will receive a confirmation email that will show the number of tickets and passes purchased. No later than one week prior to the event the e-ticket and Vehicle Pass will be emailed to you, these will need to be printed and displayed for entry.

  9. In 2016 Ford had a new car, a new team and a new challenge: to win at Le Mans 50 years after taking a 1-2-3 victory at the 1966 Le Mans race. The team delivered a historic victory and has since become even stronger, winning races all over the world, competing in both the FIA World Endurance Championship and the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. In just a few days time, the four Ford Chip Ganassi Racing GTs will line up at the Circuit de la Sarthe for the start of the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours and the defence of last year’s victory for the #68 Ford GT. The 2017 race also marks an important anniversary: 50 years since Dan Gurney (US) and AJ Foyt (US) won Le Mans, driving a Ford GT40. This, the second win in a run of four, cemented Ford’s dominance of the world’s biggest sports car race. VIDEO: Ford GT at Le Mans 24 Hours Bourdais out, Kanaan in for Le Mans The only piece of the puzzle that will be missing is Le Mans born Sébastien Bourdais, who is recovering from an accident during qualifying for the Indianapolis 500. It is a blow to the team, especially as Bourdais was in the winning #68 crew in 2016, but Joey Hand (US) and Dirk Müller (GER) have INDYCAR star Tony Kanaan (BRA) to help them fight for the top prize all over again. The crew of the #69 Ford GT remains as Ryan Briscoe (AUS), Richard Westbrook (GB) and Indianapolis 500 pole sitter, Scott Dixon (NZ). They made it to the podium last year and that has given them a great preview of what success feels like at Le Mans. The #66 Ford GT of Stefan Mücke (GER), Olivier Pla (FRA) and Billy Johnson (US) finished in fourth place last year after having to pit when penalised for a broken number panel light. Despite this, they were just one lap behind the winners at the finish and they are more motivated than ever this time around. The 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours was a tough race for the #67 Ford GT crew as the car developed a gearbox problem just before the start, which put paid to any challenge. This year Andy Priaulx (GB), Harry Tincknell (GB) and Pipo Derani (BRA) want to be at the heart of the battle. Le Mans participations for the Ford GT drivers: Stefan Mücke -– 10 times (2007-2016) Olivier Pla -– 9 times (2008-2016) Richard Westbrook -– 6 times (2010-2014, 2016) Dirk Müller -– 5 times (1999-2000, 2010-2011, 2016) Andy Priaulx -– 3 times (2010-2011, 2016) Harry Tincknell -– 3 times (2014-2016) Ryan Briscoe -– 3 times (2013, 2015-2016) Joey Hand –- 2 times (2011, 2016) Pipo Derani –- 2 times (2015-2016) Scott Dixon –- 1 time (2016) Billy Johnson -– 1 time (2016) Tony Kanaan – Le Mans rookie Which Ford GT is that? The Four Ford GTs will run at Le Mans in the same red, white and blue livery. In order to help the commentators and viewers differentiate between the cars they will all run brightly coloured windscreen strips, wing mirrors and an LED light strip down the middle of the windscreen using the following colours: #66 GREEN #67 BLUE #68 RED #69 YELLOW New for this year and especially striking at night, the wing mirrors will be coated in electroluminescent paint that will glow in each car's unique colour, making each car easily identifiable at all times while adding almost no weight. Did you know? When Dan Gurney decided to spray the Champagne he was given on the podium after his 1967 victory he started the tradition that continues all over the world today. It was Bruce McLaren who told Chris Amon to “Go Like Hell!” in 1966. Ford’s Le Mans results in the 1960s 1966 1st Bruce McLaren (NZ) / Chris Amon (NZ) 2nd Ken Miles (GB) / Denis Hulme (NZ) 3rd Ronnie Bucknum (US) / Dick Hutcherson (US) 1967 1st Dan Gurney (US) / AJ Foyt (US) 1968 1st Pedro Rodriguez (MEX) / Lucien Bianchi (BEL) 1969 1st Jacky Ickx (BEL) / Jackie Oliver (GB) 3rd David Hobbs (GB) / Mike Hailwood (GB)

  13. Ford Fair 2017 6th August 2017

    Here is a link to more information about attending with the FOC at this years Ford Fair http://www.fordownersclub.com/news/events/ford-fair-silverstone-6th-august-2017/
  14. The best way forward for this year is to allow members to book and pay directly with the organisers (Kelsey Publishers) as there is no financial benefit to booking centrally through the Club and it allows for greater flexibility for selection of options (camping, 1 day, 2 days, etc). However, as in previous years, we do have a Club Stand arranged and Ford Owners Club is listed to select in the drop-down menu when booking through the following link: http://www.fordfair.co.uk/club-tickets When a password is requested, enter FOC123 to proceed. Note: It is worth remembering to order the Vehicle Passes at the time as it is difficult to add afterwards. Vehicle Passes and Child Passes (2 free with adult) are free of charge If you need further assistance with booking space on the Club Stand then please contact either a Moderator or Admin.
