One hundred and fourteen years ago, Henry Ford entered a 10-lap, 10 mile race at the Detroit Driving Club in Grosse Point, Michigan in his self-built race car called “Sweepstakes”.
Going up against a heavily-favoured Alexander Winton, Henry Ford took a surprising win that ultimately changed automotive manufacturing forever. On the back of this win, Henry Ford was able to set up the Ford Motor Company just two years later.
Motorsport has long been a core component of Ford’s DNA. This year Ford has returned to the track with an all-new generation of GT race car, half a century after securing a 1-2-3 finish at this prestigious race with the iconic GT40 in 1966.
The Ford GT race car is a proof point of Ford innovation and is based on the all-new ultra-highperformance Ford GT supercar unveiled in January 2015.
After a long absence away from this prestigious motorsport event, Ford now returns in a four-car attack hoping to make history once again.
