All Ford Nationals, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Steve Saleen Signature Event

The Saleen Owners and Enthusiasts Club is pleased to announce that, for the 3rd year in a row, it will host the appearance of Steve Saleen at the 2015 All Ford Nationals, Carlisle, Pennsylvania on June 5-7, 2015. The Ford GT (made for Ford by Saleen) is the featured car. Carlisle Events will have all Saleen produced vehicles park together so that all owners can have time to spend with Steve Saleen. Last September 2014 Steve Saleen gave us a very early commitment to attend this event. This was reconfirmed in early April 2015.

Saleen Registration
The Carlisle Showfield has Saleen Mustang classes 385, 386, 387, & 388. An all Saleen Powered Class # 389 for other Saleen powered vehicles has been added. (It is listed slightly out of order in the middle of the 390s on the Carlisle website.) Carlisle also has Black, Red, and Yellow Mustang registration. These separate Mustang groups will not be part of the Saleen display area.

All the Saleen classes will be parked near the Ford GT special feature car area to allow for Saleen owners to be near Steve Saleen’s activities with the Ford GT group. This is the first time that all Saleen built vehicles will be displayed together. (This will not be in our usual area in the Mustang section.)

Friday Afternoon, June 5, 2015
On Friday afternoon, June 5, 2015, the Saleen Owners and Enthusiasts Club will host an exclusive Saleen and Ford GT owners autograph session with Steve Saleen. This exclusive Friday Saleen and Ford GT session is being offered to allow time for Steve Saleen to personally greet owners, sign Saleen memorabilia, and Saleen built vehicles (including Ford GTs). For Saleen and Ford GT owners who are unable to attend on Friday, time to sign vehicles will be offered on Saturday. Please try to attend on Friday to avoid the long lines on Saturday and assure that there is enough time to get your autographs and photos with Steve Saleen.

Friday Evening, June 5, 2015
Steve Saleen will attend the Carlisle Events Friday evening dinner for Ford GT owners. To avoid conflicts with Carlisle activities, the Saleen Owners and Enthusiasts Club will not be arranging a Friday dinner as has been done in the past. Saleen Owners can stay and hang out at the club tent Friday evening, but only owners who purchase a Ford GT package will be able to attend the Ford GT dinner and exclusive Ford GT activities. Those who want to stay and hang out at the club tent can eat at the food vendor area under the Grand Stands. Most of the food vendors are open until 5:00. Most area restaurants will have long lines at 5:00.

Ford GT Celebration Packages
The Ford GT packages are $200 for the Friday Night Ford GT Party with no Ford GT registered or $250 for the Full Ford GT celebration package including a Ford GT registration and Saturday Night Parade for a Ford GT. These events are being arranged by Carlisle Events, so we don’t have additional information about the Ford GT package. Here is the link to Carlisle’s Ford GT page.

Friday Night, June 5, 2015
The $200 Friday Night VIP GT Party gets you into the VIP party within Building T. Meet and chat with all the Ford GT celebrities in attendance, get them to sign your favorite GT model or your favorite GT book. Hear from the celebrities as the night goes on and see who they select as their special GT Celebrity Choice picks. After dinner and speeches the night will conclude with a special autograph signing opportunity with all the celebrities in attendance. Carlisle Events will be providing a limited edition poster for this celebration for you to have signed in addition to what you may have.

Saleen owners who register a car in their class and want to purchase the $200 Friday night VIP GT package will need to upgrade to the VIP package and get details by contacting Ken Appell at Carlisle Events: 717-243-7855.
