Next year Ford will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company’s 3-year-in-a-row victory at the famous race in 1966, followed by another victory in 1967 and the other one in 1968.

The GT will run the full FIA World Endurance Championship and TUDOR United SportsCar Championship schedule next year beginning with the Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2016.
“As we developed the Ford GT, from the outset, we wanted to ensure we had a car that has what it takes to return Ford to the world of GT racing,” said Raj Nair, Ford’s Vice President of Global Product Development and chief technical officer. “We believe the Ford GT’s advances in aerodynamics, light-weighting and EcoBoost power will make for a compelling race car that can once again compete on a global stage.”
