Ford GT Returns to Le Mans

Ford GT Returns to Le Mans

Ford announced today it is returning to one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world with its new Ford GT race car, based on the all-new ultra-high-performance supercar that goes on sale next year.

The Ford GT race car will compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans – referred to by many as the Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency – starting next year. Revealed today at the famous circuit in Le Mans, France, Ford GT will compete in the Le Mans GT Endurance class for professional teams and drivers (LM GTE Pro).

The new race car – a further proof point of Ford innovation – is based on the all-new Ford GT supercar unveiled in January. Both the production car and race car will arrive in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of Ford GT race cars placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Ford went on to repeat its victory at Le Mans in 1967, 1968 and 1969.

    I’ve always been a bigger Chevrolet fan, because they have been more
    prominent and successful in sports car racing, open wheel, and oval track
    racing overall, and performance is all I’m about. With that said, I still
    like and respect Ford, and that was a great teaser for a great car and I’m
    eager to watch Ford compete in 2016. Good luck guys.

    I would like to be excited, but the sled that will be hitting the streets
    in the US is a 6 Cylinder. Theres no replacement for dsplacement. To honor
    the original the new version needs an 8!!

    I’m excited to see them joining WEC, as well as TUSSC. I’m assuming they
    should be pretty much full factory team. I love the way this car looks.
