@FordSouthAfrica #FordGoFurther

This month I was sent up to JHB to represent @BakedTheBlog at the #FordGoFurther event.

You may recall me visiting PE this month where I went to watch the VW Rally (I visit every year to see this spectacular event) and supported my favourite driver Mark Cronje in the S2000 Ford Fiesta.

Although fashion is my passion in life I always feel that I was meant to be a rally driver (no jokes) and have had a secret love for speed, off road racing and 4x4ing. I was TOO excited to visit JHB and test drive the new Ford Ranger Odyssey as well as view their range of cars AND see the new Mustang being launched!

Day 1:

We arrived in JHB and were shuttled straight to the Sandton Convention centre where we viewed all of the Ford cars, were able to ask questions and learn more about each  model. We were then introduced to the Mustang after an interesting talk about the Ford business and it’s goals and achievements.

We then had lunch and caught up with all of the JHB media before being shuttled to our hotel – The Maslow Hotel- where we freshened up and prepared for the after party – The Mustang Party. Once again, we took tons of pics of the Mustang and caught up with industry friends.

Day 2:

We woke up bright and early for our Ford off-road driver training where we were divided into two groups. My group went for the off-road driver training first. We were walked through the course and given driving tips to complete it safely and then were able to drive the Odyssey through the course. Once each person had driven the course the two groups swapped and we were able to test drive any Ford car on the open road – I chose to drive the Ford Focus and was very sad when I realised I had to leave the car and come home to my  old Chico!

More importantly, follow this link to see more info on the Ford Mustang here , available in SA in 2015. I captured this video at the Mustang Party, have a watch:
