Ford to return to Le Mans with GT racer

50 years since its original victory, Ford reveals car to compete at La Sarthe in 2016

Welcome to the brand new Ford GT race car, set to make its competitive debut next year in both the TUDOR United SportsCar championship and the FIA World Endurance Championship.
