In 1966 Ford competed at Le Mans and accomplished the amazing feat of scoring a 1-2-3 finish with the iconic Ford GT40. 50 Years later Ford set out to return to endurance racing in attempt to match their 1966 glory. Well his weekend the Ford team managed to finish 1st, 3rd and 4th in class.

The triumph for Ford has been a fairy tale dream come true. It was only January 2015 when the Ford GT was revealed to  the world at the Detroit Auto Show that Ford announced to the World that they would return to Le Mans after decades of absence in an attempt to relive their 1960s glory.

Once again in 2016 it was Ford and Ferrari battling it out for the podium; Ford narrowly missed  repeating their 1-2-3 victory with a Ferrari finishing in second  giving the Fords 1st, 3rd and 4th.
