Mustang convention being sponsored by Ford


Mustang-50th-logoFord Motor Company of New Zealand will take the role as the primary sponsor of this year’s national Mustang convention being held in Christchurch over Labour Weekend, from Friday October 24 through Monday October 27.

“Being the global 50th anniversary for the Mustang, the 2014 event in Christchurch will be a very special occasion,” says Ford NZ managing director Corey Holter.

“Previous Mustang conventions have been superbly managed by the respective organising clubs with their local sponsorships. Accordingly we’re delighted to go further this year and provide direct support to the organising club, Canterbury, for this one-off opportunity in Christchurch.”

The Canterbury Mustang Owners’ Club president Jeff Waghorn says he recognises the impact and responsibility of Ford’s investment.

“Our club had already been humbled by the opportunity of hosting the 50th celebration convention. Now, with Ford’s direct support, we are even more motivated to create an event truly befitting the Mustang’s anniversary.”

Whilst registrations are not due to open until April, the Canterbury organisers expect more than 200 Mustangs to attend the 2014 event.

The conventions will feature a public show and exhibition, a “pony run” and a Ruapuna track day. It is expected to possibly be among the largest single brand events ever seen in NZ.
