On track to turn back the clock again in France?

June 30, 2016

We enjoyed two historic victories in France in 1966 – at Le Mans with the GT40 Mark II, and as part of the winning Tour de France team.

Earlier this month, Ford repeated its victory on four wheels when the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing team of Sébastien Bourdais, Joey Hand and Dirk Müller were overall GT winners at the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours.

Now, fifty years after Lucien Aimar rode to victory as part of the Ford France – Hutchinson cycle team, Ford is hoping to repeat that success on two wheels.

We are Team Sky’s exclusive supplier of cars and vans, and will be supporting the elite cycling team – led by two time winner Chris Froome. Over 21 stages and 3,519 kilometres, the distinctive blue and black liveried Ford Mondeo wagon cars will be at the heart of the action, with a Mustang, an Edge, S-MAX sports activity vehicles, Kuga SUVs and Transit vans also supporting.

Team Sky, which has won cycling’s premier race three times in the past four years with Chris Froome and Sir Bradley Wiggins, has been using our latest vehicles to support its racing programme since the start of 2016.
