Announcements

Ford Performance Le Mans Livestream Le Mans
As you likely know, Ford won the Le Mans 24 Hours race outright from 1966 to 1969 and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the win for the iconic JW-Automotive Gulf Ford GT40.

After our incredible win in 2016, we followed up with a second-place finish in 2017 in a remarkable GTE Pro race that saw the first three places change hands in the final couple of laps after 24 hours of hard-fought, wheel-to wheel-racing. This year, we're aiming again for the top spot on the podium, but the race will be more competitive than ever.

Through our Ford Live online broadcast, available at www.fordperformance.tv, you can get a live in-car feed from all four Ford cars, catch interviews with the team and check out the garage. The race begins at 9 a.m. Dearborn time on Saturday.
