The drama behind the Ford GT40 photo finish at Le Mans 1966
I’m sure that by now everyone knows this story as it’s the basis of a recent film release – Ford vs Ferrari. If you haven’t seen it, then I recommend that you do.
This short documentary below (from the Petersen Automotive Museum) contains plenty of actual footage from the Ford GT40 programme , the Le Mans race itself and interviews with many of the key people involved.
I don’t know if you need to give spoiler alerts on stories that are this well known, but if you don’t know it and you want to see the film you may want to save this until afterwards.
