Sandbag Much? Ford GTs Gain Five Seconds to Take Provisional Pole at Le Mans

Sandbag Much? Ford GTs Gain Five Seconds to Take Provision Pole at Le Mans


Corvette Racing’s Doug Fehan is not all that happy after the first qualifying sessions which saw the Ford GTs make up five seconds between last weekend’s test day to take four of the top five spots in GTE-Pro.

In fact, the Ford GTs are so quick, they’ve eclipsed Aston Martin’s 2015 GTE-Pro Pole by 3.7 seconds.

Dirk Mueller put the No. 68 Ford GT on the provisional pole with a time of 3:51.185 while Ryan Briscoe was right behind him in the No. 69 Ford. The No. 51 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE was third in class and the only other manufacturer to compete with Ford on Wednesday.

One of the highlights for residents of Le Mans is the scrutineering process that happens in the middle of town. For the uninitiated, scrutineering is the inspection process that each racecar must undergo prior to the start of race week for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

One after another, each racecar is transported downtown and they are inspected by the ACO to insure they meet the standards for their class. It’s not just the cars that undergo inspection as crew members and drivers must show their safety equipment as well.

Following scrutineering, the race teams have their official team photos taken in the town square.
