And what better way than to take another victory at Le Sarthe in the 50th anniversary year of that famous sticking-it-to-Ferrari win of 1966? OK, there was no chance of taking overall honours in the 24 hour – the classes don't allow for it. But in the WEC, the Ford GT did indeed take pole and the win.
It was just part of a very good year for the GT. In IMSA, it took six poles and four wins – plus another six podium positions. In WEC, it claimed two poles and the same number of wins – plus another three podium finishes. Ford itself reviews the season in this video.
