Thank Frankel it's Friday: The Ford GT is a racer for the road

Fifty years ago today, the Le Mans 24 Hours got underway, with everyone expecting the titanic battle that had raged between Ford and Ferrari for the previous three races to continue. Despite Ferrari’s 4-litre V12 engine being completely outgunned by the monster 7-litre V8 used by the Ford, the P4 has already not just won the curtain-raising 24-hour race at Daytona that year, but placed on every step of the podium while the Ford GT40 challenge simply collapsed.
