Ford win falls on the 50th anniversary of the GT40’s first world championship

A look back at why this year`s Ford class win was such a sweet victory



Well, they did it ... again. Despite troubles early in the season, Ford managed to win its class in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans. Joey Hand, Dirk Muller and Sebastien Bourdais led the Ford Chip Ganassi USA team across the finish line in the LMGTE Pro class. The Ford GT was more than a minute ahead of the other teams. The win conveniently falls on the 50th anniversary of the GT40’s first world championship.
