Meet The World Endurance Championship Ford GT Drivers: Video

We all know that the new Ford GT racing program produced a class win at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in France, but how well do you know the individuals at the forefront of making it happen?

As Le Mans was a “must-win” event for Ford this year, the automaker actually ran four Ford GT race cars – twice the usual number for a FIA World Endurance Championship event – and brought in its top IMSA drivers to have enough manpower on call. But in the video above, published to Ford Performance’s official YouTube channel, we only get acquainted with the Ford GT’s five regular WEC drivers as they answer a series of questions both trivial and personal: Andy Priaulx, Olivier Pla, Harry Tincknell, Stefan Mücke, and Marino Franchitti.

Next up on the FIA World Endurance calendar is the 6 Hours of Mexico on September 3rd. As in past races, two examples of the new Ford GT race car will take to the grid, battling it out with Aston Martin Racing’s Vantage V8s, AF Corse’s Ferrari 488 GTEs, and other GTE Pro-class contenders for a shot at a second season victory.

Best of luck.
