We’re up four Le Mans!

February 5, 2016

Fifty years after our legendary one-two-three finish at the 1966 Le Mans 24 hour race we can reveal that FOUR Ford GT racing cars will compete at the iconic event this year.

Race organisers the Automobile Club de l’Ouest confirmed the four Ford GTs will wear numbers 66, 67, 68 and 69 – a nod to our four successive Le Mans victories between 1966 and 1969 – at the race on June 18-19.

Behind the wheel will be the drivers who are racing the Ford GT in the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship and the 2016 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, including Brits Marino Franchitti, Andy Priaulx and Richard Westbrook.
