FORD UK IS 100 – AND COUNTING!

8th March, 2011 signified Ford of Britain's 100th birthday and this year also sees Ford marking 100 years of vehicle manufacturing in the UK.

Ford plans a year-long centenary celebration with themed marketing campaigns to flag up this special year. A Ford of Britain centenary logo has been created, which delivers its message as text on a keyless Ford Power starter button.

Historical displays will take place at various motoring events and a gala event will take place in the first half of 2011.

Ford-related events are being held around the country including the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Hampshire and the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon, Warwickshire. This year's Goodwood Revival, the country's premier historic motoring event, will see a significant number of classic Ford cars take to the circuit, in September.
