In case you haven’t thought about it for some time, the world’s most storied endurance race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans – is coming up quick; it’s scheduled to take place from Saturday, June 17th to Sunday, June 18th.
And just like last year, Ford’s performance division will stream the entire event live, providing fans real-time access to camera feeds from each of its four Ford GT race cars plus its trackside garage.
The Ford Chip Ganassi Racing team has a decent shot at reliving last year’s victory in the GTE-Pro class, having taken first at the 6 Hours of Silverstone season opener, and third at the 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps. Still, as we reported last month, the team was hit with some harsh BoP (Balance of Performance) adjustments ahead of pre-race testing: 20 kg in ballast weight, and a reduced peak turbo pressure allowance.
