Ford Fair 2019 was a blast. One of many shows we attend throughout the year, this is without doubt the ultimate if you’re a fan of the blue oval. If you were there or not, you would be hard pushed to notice everything that was going on. That’s why we’ve put together some of the things that you might have missed, but you definitely need to know.
The new-look Revo Ford Fiesta ST is unveiled, along with some exciting new products.
Fitted with the worlds first set of RV018 lightweight wheels in a four stud set-up, we were really excited to show you how great these look on the car. The smaller size design means the dish is really emphasised and looks great wrapped in a set of Nankang AS-2+. We can’t wait to get them fitted with the more track focussed AR-1’s though to give the car a more aggressive look and more importantly, much more grip in the corners.
Whilst stock brakes are perfectly adequate for general driving, the braking system is often overlooked when enhancing a vehicle’s performance. For the Fiesta ST’s debut on track at Ford Fair, we fitted our Big Brake Kit for ultimate stopping power. How great do these look under the new RV018’s?!
The Revo Big Brake Kit comes complete with everything required to upgrade your stopping power. With Calipers and discs manufactured by industry leaders Alcon and a floating system designed by our in-house engineers, each kit includes everything you need in one box; brake lines, brake pads, floating discs, mono-bloc calipers, brackets and even brake fluid.
Along with the more visual changes to the car, including a full digital wrap fitted by 3sixtyWraps there were a few less obvious modifications. First up was a full set of springs supplied by our friends at Eibach to deliver aggressive looks and high performance handling. The new Revo rear torque mount, designed to reduce engine movement under load. And of-course a GPF-back performance exhaust from Milltek Sport to supplement the improved sound from Revo ECU Software. (Cerakote black tips FTW.)

Ford Fair wouldn’t be Ford Fair without some Silverstone track action.
Getting out on track is what it’s all about for us. As fun as it is on your own, it’s even better when you’re with your mates. That’s why every year we invite Revo customers heading to the show to take part in our competition and join us on the iconic Silverstone Circuit. We were so overwhelmed by the amount of people who entered this year that we decided to run two sessions.
With a wide range of power and experience, there really is no better way to learn than sharing experiences. With a whole host of Revo Authorised Dealer’s in attendance (and plenty of time in the pit lane due to oil spills), it was the perfect opportunity for everyone to chat about their cars, what they’ve done, and then demonstrate their capability on track.
You can check out the full gallery of all those that joined us here. What’s a track day without some pro photographs for the gram?!
#Onlythedriven competition winner gets a passenger lap to remember.
And if free track time wasn’t enough, we also gave one lucky person the chance to sit alongside our very own Time Attack Champion driver Alex Bones. Luke, who owns an RT330 powered Mk7 Fiesta ST was taken out in the Revo Mk8 Fiesta ST for a 20-minute session around the national circuit at Silverstone.
“Revo has once again taken it to another level, you can really feel the smooth power delivery through the rev range. Any average person like myself driving it would be one thing but having Alex behind the wheel really shows you what it’s capable of!”@lukuss_st
Revo roundup; Some team favourites from the day.
All the way from the Netherlands, Revo Authorised Dealers Kevin and Jeroen from Autobedrijf Mebu had pride of place on the Revo stand.
Essex based Auto Specialists had a race red edition Ford Focus RS tucked away that looked absolutely stunning. On a set of Revo RV019 wheels with a 6-Pot Big Brake Kit and sticky rubber for good measure.
CEUK arrived in style with an awesome convoy, and a stand to match. When it came to the track sessions, they didn’t hold back there either. If you’re struggling to make the decision to strip out and cage your Fiesta, or keep it a little more suited to road driving, then these are the people to ask. They couldn’t decide either, so they build both. Read the Full feature on both of these 330bhp ST’s.
Adam’s Focus RS really caught our attention, for obvious reasons. Running Revo Stage 2 ECU Software it was great to see this on track all day being used as it should be. Really nice touch with the Nitrous Blue Revo big brake kit fitted too.
Matt Lewis Motorsport had their Revo powered Mk2 Focus RS on display along with a whole load of Ford parts to spend your pocket-money on.
SCC Performance wasn’t messing around. With more of a focus on chilling out and catching up with the Revo family and customers, they had their impressive blue badged fleet on display. Their Mk8 Fiesta ST, which was used in the ‘between two cars’ episode we did a while back was sat next to its little brother, the awesome ST Line 1.0 EcoBoost.
Reunited at last. ‘Between two cars’ Fiesta ST’s together on the Revo Stand.
When we launched Revo ECU Software for the Mk8 Ford Fiesta ST. We shot a head to head drag race and invited Jonny, or JBCTR as you might know him to take part. There was only one difference between the two; Revo ECU Software. We invited Jonny to join us on our stand at Ford Fair, and to join us on track once again, this time both were running Revo ECU Software. You can find out Jonny’s thoughts on his Revo Powered ST here.
So that’s our round-up of Ford Fair 2019 complete, hopefully we’ve filled in a few gaps from such an action packed day! Thanks to everyone who came to say hello, joined us on track and made the day so great. See you next year!
We’d love to know what you think will be on our stand next year. Remember to tag us on any photo’s you’ve taken from the day and comment below if you spot anyones car on the post.
