Ford time again........... Here's the GT-40 Mk IV; actually a totally different car than the Mk 1, which came both before it and after it at Le Mans. Purpose built and it certainly lived up to its expectations, even though it's racing time was short.

This car will be well represented come October 1st; thanks to the NSR cars.

I've been consistently in the top of the bottom third with the 917 for years now. So I figured let's try to repeat with something a little different this year.

Thanks Chris. I still remember that painful (for some of us.....) finish, when the new factory 917's went out with clutch problems, leaving the lone 908 to run against Ickx's GT-40. It was a great finish and a very smart drive by Ickx!

....but I do remember that Ahrens put a 917 on the pole for that race..........
