Ford Wins LeMans

Ford had a case of Deja Vu this past weekend at LeMans. The No. 68 Ford GT took home the gold in the GTE pro class, beating their old time Italian nemesis Ferrari. Dirk Muller, Joey Hand, and Sebastien Bourdais were the men that drove the GT 24 hours through the checkered flag.

“This is a historic moment for the Ford Motor Company,” Bill Ford, executive chairman of Ford, said in a statement. “We dared to dream that we could return to Le Mans, 50 years after the incredible 1966 win and take on the toughest competition in the world. The pride we all felt when the Ford GT crossed the line at Le Mans is indescribable.”
