Article Written by : Legendary Videos

It first happened way back in 1966 when original Ford GT40 defeated Enzo Ferrari’s seemingly unbeatable squad of Italian chariots. And now, in 2016, at a very same venue exactly 50 years later, it’s happened again. A new Ford GT No. 68 emerged victorious in the LM GTE Pro Category at 24 Hours of Le Mans. The No. 68 car, driven by Sebastian Bourdais, Joey Hand and Dirk Muller crossed a finish line at three o’clock on Sunday, while the Nos. 66 and 67 Ford GTs finished in fourth and ninth places, respectively. And the No. 68 GT went head-to-head with the No. 82 Ferrari, but it was the Ford that took the lead in 20th hour of the grueling endurance race. The No. 66 GT was also in the prime position earlier in the race but suffered the electric problem that made it fall behind.
