Saleen Automotive will unveil their 30-Year Championship Commemorative Edition Saleen Mustangs, both street and race versions, at the largest gathering of Mustangs in the Northwest — the Mustangs Northwest Roundup 2017. Activities set to start at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, July 12, at the Bill Pierre Ford dealership, a long-standing Saleen dealer, in Seattle, Washington. Event participants consist of Saleen CEO Steve Saleen and his team, representatives from General Tire, and Championship racers George Follmer, Rick Titus, Desiré Wilson and Lisa Caceres.
“I am proud and thrilled to be formally debuting our Championship Commemorative Edition Saleen Mustangs at the Bill Pierre Ford dealership, a great Saleen supporter for many, many years,” stated Steve Saleen. “Saleen Automotive, Inc., has always been warmly welcomed by the members of Mustangs Northwest at their yearly Roundups, so, it was a natural for us to participant in this year’s 2017 Event. It will be an outstanding weekend. Come on out and meet the Championship Team and get an up-close look at our newest Saleen Mustangs.”
Further plans surrounding the Roundup, consist of a track-drive event on Thursday, July 13, at Pacific Raceway in nearby Kent, Washington. Saleen drivers and the new Championship Edition Saleen Mustangs are going to be on the track for press ride-alongs. A Friday Night Meet and Greet is scheduled at the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue.
“We’re excited to partner with Saleen on this amazing new anniversary edition Mustang and we’re really pumped to have this opportunity to showcase our all-new summer performance G-MAX RS tire to the media,” stated director of marketing for General Tire, Travis Roffler. “There is no better way to experience a tire than to get behind the wheel of a great car and feel its performance.”
The Roundup car-show portion of the event continues Saturday and Sunday, July 15-16, at Bellevue College, located in Bellevue, Washington. The Championship Edition Saleen Mustangs will be on display at the show along with driver autograph signings at the Saleen Display.
The Wednesday night event is open to the public and along with the unveiling of these brand new Saleen Mustangs, the event includes food, goody bags (while they last), meet and greets and autograph signings with the members of the elite Saleen race teams as mentioned above.
