LIVE BLOG: Return to Le Mans

June 18, 2016

50 years ago, the Ford GT40 stunned Le Mans winning 1-2-3,  victorious in a clean sweep, creating history for Ford.


Today we race again.

 

Follow us as we provide live updates from Le Mans 24 Hours, 2016. Follow updates on social with #FordLeMans or stream on-board cameras from all four vehicles at www.fordperformance.tv

 

Morning we’re live from Le Mans!

There’s nothing like a little emotion to fire your passion. Watch the people that make the Ford Performance brand.

 

It’s race day! And, it’s raining. :(

Never fear we asked racing legend Chip Ganassi what he thought the rain meant for the race…

Momentarily we had a break from the rain – phew! GT owners clubs are a unique marriage of strangers from across the world with one passion. The Ford GT. We invited them all to come and take part in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, to drive their GT’s in a one lap prior to the race kick-off.

 

IT.WAS.SPECTACULAR.

This of course was followed by the newest star of the Ford Performance family, the Focus RS and Ford Mustang. SO MANY MUSTANG’S. Drool.
