Mission accomplished! Ford have celebrated the 50th anniversary of the historic Le Mans 24H 1-2-3 finish of the GT40 in 1966 with a win in the GTE Pro class in 2016 with the new GT racecar.
The event’s overall LMP1 winner after heartbreaking circumstances for Toyota (breaking down with 3 minutes to go) was the Porsche 919 with the Ford GT taking the GTE title ahead of the Ferrari 488s, Aston Martin Vantages, Corvette C7.Rs and Porsche 911 RSRs.
We go behind the scenes at the event to see a little of what’s happening, take a look at those legendary cars of old and catch some pit stops of each of the cars during the event where they placed 1st, 3rd, 4th and 9th.
Thanks for watching, Tim
