Ferman Proudly Sponsors the 2018 Gasparilla Distance Classic
 
For the 13th year running, Ferman Automotive is the Official Automotive Sponsor of the 2018 Gasparilla Distance Classic.

This year, a Mustang Convertible from Ferman Ford was used as an official pace car to carry dignitaries and race officials along the course route.

The Gasparilla Distance Classic has become one of the premier races in the country, but more than just a competition for runners, the Gasparilla Distance Classic is also an impactful community event. The race is a charity fundraiser, helping distinguished organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay, Metropolitan Ministires and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Local high school and university athletic programs have also benefited from the Gasparilla Distance Classic's generosity, such as Plant High School and the University of Tampa.

 
During the Gasparilla Health and Fitness Expo, visitors to the Ferman booth entered to win a number of great prizes and helped themselves to complimentary giveaway items like tote bags and koozies. A DJ provided music and and lightning to set the tone for a show-stopping display area that featured Ferman vehicles from our huge selection of cars, trucks and SUVs.

Allyson from Tampa was this year's lucky winner of tickets to the 2018 Gasparilla Music Festival. She and three friends got to take in this fun, local event courtesy of Ferman.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Gasparilla Distance Classic events. We hope to see you again next year!
