Ford is bringing a touch of white-knuckle fun to the world's largest outdoor mobility event – the Mobility Roadshow 2004 at Donington Park between June 17 and 19.
Over the years, the roadshow at the legendary Derbyshire race track has earned a reputation as 'the Motor Show for disabled people', giving anyone with different mobility requirements the chance to try out the latest adapted cars. Thanks to Ford, however, this year's event will offer some even more thrilling rides.
The Ford-backed Fun-Zone offers the more adventurous visitor the chance to really let rip. Whether it's flinging a hand-controlled Ford Mondeo around a skidpan or taking on all-comers in a hand-operated Go-Kart, the zone certainly lives up to its name.
Those preferring a more sedate form of motoring can book a circuit around the race track in a range of adapted Ford vehicles, including Focus, Focus C-MAX, Mondeo and Galaxy. The automatic Fiesta – a new addition to the Motability scheme – will be making its Mobility Roadshow debut.
Meanwhile, over on the Ford stand, visitors will be able to take a detailed look at the Ford range, with specialist staff on hand to answer any questions.
Experts from a number of aftermarket adaptation companies will also be on the stand, demonstrating some of the extra modifications that can be made to Ford vehicles. They include:
And as if all that wasn't enough, Ford will even ferry visitors to the roadshow gate from various points around the car park. Just look out for one of the three Focus C-MAX vehicles with the Ford blue oval on the side.
