Mustangs NW Ride and Drive!

The Mustang Roundup & All Ford Picnic is a show that we look forward to every year. Held in the Pacific Northwest, Ford enthusiasts of all ages from the Seattle & surrounding areas reaching all the way to California, Montana, and parts of Canada come together for 4 days of fun and camaraderie. A visit to Pacific Raceways for open track racing, then the Pony Trails cruise, dinner boat cruise, and a massive 2 day car show cap off the event.  See: [PHOTOS] from this event!



Vaughn Gittin Jr. tore things up all day long, and broke in his new Monster Mustang 2010 with a first place finish.  This was after a heart-pounding battle with Rhys Millen, who took second place. Seems like the Red Bull Genesis is for real this year.

The final spot on the podium went to Tanner Foust, who advanced from a tight third place battle with newcomer Fredric Aasbo.

We’ll have an onslaught of coverage from FD Long Beach coming soon, including JR’s own guest blog chronicling his win, but for now it’s time to celebrate!

Our congrats to Vaughn, Rhys, and Tanner for kicking of 2010 on a high note.

Mustang in FIA GT3?

When you think of the FIA GT3 racing series in Europe, the cars that comes to mind are the Audi R8 LMS, BMW Z4 GT3 like the Need for Speed from my last post, Porsche GT3 etc. Mostly Euro cars and maybe a Ford GT in there once in a while. But can you believe a Ford Mustang racing against these machines?

Yup, a race team who ran a Ford GT in previous season will be currently running the Ford Mustang GT3.
