Ford GT Sets Le Mans Pole Position, Gets Penalty for Being too Fast
This week has been memorable for the United States in non-mainstream sports. Not only did the U.S. national soccer team make it to quarter finals in the prestigious Copa America, but the heroic return of the Ford GT to Le Mans yielded them the pole position in qualifying.
With the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race around the corner, much of the discussion since last year has focused on the car, the engine, the tire supplier, the race itself, but hardly on the valiant drivers behind the wheel.
Few vehicles in the world are as charming and intricate as a good ‘ole Ford Woodie. I mean, just look at this prime example.
I’m not a U.S Mail post stamp collector at all, but you know what I’m a collector of? Cool things. And that includes everything with a Ford car or truck on it.
It is a week to remember for Ford Motor Company, but specially everyone involved with Ford Performance and the Chip Ganassi racing organization.
