New Ford GT Race Car Testing – Video
Before Ford unveiled its return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans to us, it was already secretly testing the race car it would use to compete on the race track.
Ford Performance is giving all their fans around the world an exclusive look at the new Ford GT race car’s first shakedown test.
Four Ford GTs will participate next year under the Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates banner – two in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship (United States) and two in the FIA World Endurance Championship.
This first official test was performed off the “Road to Daytona” – the seven months Ford and partners Multimatic, CGR and Roush Yates Engines would have to prepare for the Ford GT’s first 24-hour race, the 24 Hours of Daytona.
