Team Shelby Dearborn 2014

Recommended Posts

The planning for Dearborn 2014 has already started with new partners last night! :clapping:

 

Our plans include changing Dearborn's venues up somewhat for 2014 - adding new visits, including one that we're not going to announce until we arrive at the destination. :sneaking:

 

We've also taken some feedback from members, like MSMAP (Sherri) who suggested that we move the Romeo Engine Plant tour after the Michigan Proving Ground Tour. This will insure that we get our laps in on the track and get the meet the engine builders after they being to leave work.

 

2014 will mark the 5th time that we'll have produced a Dearborn event! :shift:

We had our first meeting last night, yes Sunday, in west Dearborn. While we don't have dates yet, we're way ahead of schedule as to what we're going to submit to Ford.

Looking forward to it. Can we do it in February so we can drive in the snow?

We would like to join in as well. Please post dates as soon as possible so that we can plan for the travel from Minnesota.

 

Not sure if we would bring the Shelby, Taurus Sho or FX4 EcoBoost.

As a note, the 2014 track part of the event will be restricted to Shelby Mustangs/Mustangs, excluding rentals. We'll post more on this and the reasoning later.

You mean 2014, right?

I would like to know the reasoning behind no rentals :-(

It has to do with insurance/liability issues. Nothing really to do with Ford itself.

We are taking your advice in making the proving grounds tour occur before the engine plant. :flirt:

 

We're also adding four more stops.

just tell Sherri there will be a nice salad and she is ALL IN! :salute:

 

Sherri - there will be a nice salad there. :victory:

 

The rental car policy just went into effect, so that's new for 2014.
