What is the Philly FaceOff?
As Carlisle Events embarks on its 2015 season, it's once again working with the Philadelphia Auto Show for the third offering of what is known as the Philly FaceOff. But what exactly is the FaceOff and its history? The concept of competition and the rivalries that exist within the automotive world spawned the first FaceOff in 2013. Then, in a pair of display halls adjacent to the main exhibits of the show itself, a group of Ford Mustangs took on an impressive array of Chevy Camaros. When the dust settled on that skirmish, the Mustang was victorious. Up next was the 2014 version and the Mustang attached itself to its parent company, Ford, to square off against a room of Mopars. In what could only be described as an upset of sorts, the Mopar brand defeated Ford. Now, as brand specific themes have come and gone, Carlisle Events is looking to showcase the automotive world with the new import vs. domestic theme. Best of luck to both teams, and we're looking forward to seeing you at the show!
