2016 #66 Ford GT Le Mans Race Car
Marking 50 years since Ford’s overall victory at Le Mans in 1966, the Ford GT brings the blue oval back to the highest level of sports car racing. In 2016, two Ford GTs are competing with Ford Chip Ganassi Racing in the IMSA Weathertech SportsCar Championship, and two more cars are running in the FIA World Endurance Championship with outstanding results in both series. Now, all four Ford GTs are together at Le Mans and ready to compete for glory. Upon the car’s debut at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, the red, white, and blue liveried car has been a crowd favorite. At Laguna Seca the #67 car driven by Richard Westbrook and Ryan Briscoe collected the team’s first win. In the WEC, the #67 scored a second place at the Six Hours of Spa. With its full aero kit sucking up downforce and the twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 delivering reliable, efficient power, this latest incarnation of the Ford GT is poised to make another historic run at the world’s most famous endurance race.
