With 2019 always to be a special year as we celebrate 50 years since the launch of our iconic marque, what more fitting venue to stage our National Day than Dunton Essex and the Ford Technical Centre where the story all began.
The date to add to your diary is SUNDAY 1st SEPTEMBER - the venue DUNTON, ESSEX.
For several years the good people of the Saint Francis Hospice at nearby Havering-atte-Bower (nr Romford) in Essex have run an event called "Frankie's Classic Car Fest" at Ford's Technical Centre at Dunton to generate some of the much needed funds to allow the hospice to run.  This event is a classic car show with a vintage market and it has a central theme each year. For 2019 the 50th Anniversary of the Launch of the Capri is to be the central theme.
Capris of all marques are being invited from not only the UK but Europe too.  Our Club, and the Mark 1s, though will take centre stage.  All the Capris in attendance will be located on the Test Track - arranged in year of registration order.  It's early days, but it is hoped that we may be allowed to take a slow cruise around the test track to present photo opportunities for all present.
Already two cars which cruised the test track back in 1987 - when Top Gear did a feature on the end of Capri production - have been secured to make a return visit - both Mk1s!

Watch out for this logo.
We're hoping for a massive turn out with this special chance to take our Capris "home".
And all in a good cause too!
