NGFGT 2016~2019 Race Results
« on: March 31, 2023, 03:39:08 PM »
I came across this data thought it should be compiled and archived.
Interesting chassis numbers similar to the prototype 1964 GT-40's that started the history!

A total of 8 racing GT chassis were built.

FP-GT01 : test and spare chassis in WEC for 2016 2017.
FP-GT02 : test and spare chassis in IMSA for 2016 2017, then car n67 in IMSA and n69 for Le Mans in 2018 2019.
FP-GT03 : car n66 in IMSA and n68 for Le Mans in 2016. Won the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LM GTE-Pro category and was then sent to the Henry Ford    Museum in Dearborn (Michigan) at the end of the IMSA season.
FP-GT04 : car n67 in IMSA and n69 for Le Mans in 2016 2017. Then became the test and rescue car in IMSA in 2018 before being sold to Ben Keating for    the 24 hours of Le Mans 2019 in LM GTE-Am class.
FP-GT05: car n67 for all seasons in WEC.
FP-GT06 : car n66 in WEC for 2016 2017, then test and rescue car in WEC for 2018 2019.
FP-GT07 : new chassis built in 2017, car n66 in IMSA and n68 for Le Mans 68 in 2017 2018 2019.
   2017 24hrs Daytona winner n66, Dirk Mueller, Joey Hand and Sbastien Bourdais
FP-GT08 : new chassis built in 2018, car n66 in WEC for 2018 2019.

Each of the two teams had two racing cars, plus a third to carry out tests and Use it as a replacement for one of the two racing cars entered, in the  event of excessive damage, for example.
After two seasons, the spare cars replaced one of the two racing cars because they were less worn and with a lower mileage.

Thank You for sharing this info!
Eight cars used over 4 seasons by two teams is impressive to me.

I recall one race (or practice) where one of the cars was wrecked.
I don't recall if it was rebuilt or not.
Based on info, it seems likely it was rebuilt for the next race.
