This has been a magical year for Corvette Racing and the C7.R.

First they opened the season with a win at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and then followed that up with a win at the Twelve Hours of Sebring. Then it’s off to France for Corvette Racing’s most important race of the year. And when the odds looked stacked against them after losing the No.63 Corvette in a qualifying accident, the No.64 Corvette with drivers Gavin, Milner and Taylor stepped up and ran about the cleanest 24 hour race ever to win the GTE-Pro class at the 24 Hours at Le Mans.

Ford Motor Company has just announced an extensive racing program for their new Ford GT super car.

Their real target, however, is Le Mans in 2016, the fiftieth anniversary of the earlier Ford GT’s first win and podium sweep. To take a car that has yet to turn a wheel in anger and make it into a fast and reliable racer to compete at the top level of the sport is a prodigious undertaking, even for an organization as experienced as Chip Ganassi Racing. But, as more information comes out, it is apparent that Ford has been hard at work under the radar and may be further along in the car development than we know.
