That's quite an assemblage. Beautiful!

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Race was awesome as always.......the 2 Ford GTs lead most of the race.......67 came in second behind a Ferrari and 66 dropped way back.

The 66 went off going into turn 1 and the safety crew took a while getting it back on track.
here is a link to Ganassi press release:

This was the last race for the factory backed team. The cars will be available to privateers in next years IMSA series. With the growing popularity of the series, plus the growing field of different marques (Mercedes, Audi, Acura, Lexus, Porsche and Corvette) I would hope Ford will reappear sooner than later.

I'm guessing technical support will be available to those fielding the GT's next year from Ford, either directly or indirectly.
