The Ford GT has been invited to compete at the 24 hours of LeMans this year. Matech, a Swiss
Racing team has been campaigning the Ford GT in the European FIA GT3 class the last three years.
They kicked butt winning the FIA European Championship several years running. They have been developing a GT1 class Ford GT for the 24 Hours of LeMans and have finally earned an
invite. This is quite a feat and priviledge. They will be competing against the worlds best.

Check out the videos the Matech team have posted on Youtube. Symphony No.1 and the second vido called
Momentum.

I thought this would be of interest since Shelby and his team were instrumental in making the orignal Ford GT a winner back in the 60's.

:happy feet:
