Marking the 50th Anniversary of the Ford GT40’s Development with a Unique One-Model Race
The Whitsun Trophy is the weekend’s fastest race and is always guaranteed to provide breathtaking entertainment and close racing. The legendary Ford GT40 will make a magnificent comeback in 2013 and this will be the first time in history that a dedicated competition has ever been held for these iconic Ford racers.
The Whitsun Trophy race will mark 50 years since the genesis of the Ford GT40 programme. Although the first GT40 wasn’t completed until early 1964, the Ford project actually began a year earlier in 1963, when Henry Ford II - snubbed by Enzo Ferrari over the sale of his company to the Michigan-based automotive giant - set out to beat ‘il Commendatore’ at his own game, with sights set firmly on victory in the Le Mans 24Hours race.
