    Ford GT Wins Le Mans 24H!
    Shmee150



    Published on Jun 20, 2016
    Mission accomplished! Ford have celebrated the 50th anniversary of the historic Le Mans 24H 1-2-3 finish of the GT40 in 1966 with a win in the GTE Pro class in 2016 with the new GT racecar.

    The event's overall LMP1 winner after heartbreaking circumstances for Toyota (breaking down with 3 minutes to go) was the Porsche 919 with the Ford GT taking the GTE title ahead of the Ferrari 488s, Aston Martin Vantages, Corvette C7.Rs and Porsche 911 RSRs.

    We go behind the scenes at the event to see a little of what's happening, take a look at those legendary cars of old and catch some pit stops of each of the cars during the event where they placed 1st, 3rd, 4th and 9th.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    24 Hours of Le Mans 2017 Last 15 Minutes

    The Last 15 Chaotic Minutes of the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans! Even if I don't support the Covfefe (see what I did there) Team, I was still pretty gutted for them. Anyway on some good news the #67 Ford GT got home 2nd with a tremendous effort by Harry Tincknell in the final stint. Great job Porsche, Aston, Ferrari and Jackie Chan DC Racing Oreca 07 on their victories today!

    Sorry for the quality of this being a bit meh, but I'll do...

    All credit goes to Eurosport for the coverage.

    Hope you enjoyed, and if you did please drop a like and maybe even subscribe!

    Closing driver of the Corvette is the son of the Haystacks better 1/2's good friend.
    They are the IMSA team we go and watch. Really good people.
    His dad has won Lemans which I think it a pretty cool thing to put on your resume ! :)
    Pretty incredible last 15 -20 minutes.
    The Aston Martin was on their ass and some really dicey racing.
    And all after 24 hours.
    They came back from being near 10 minutes down after another incident and plowed up through the ranks to 1st.

    I have watched the missed turn where he goes over the small rocky patch probably 12x this week
    and looks to me like he braked when he was going into that turn and he knew something happened.
    Also noticed when he turned into the pit after he struggled across the line and his left front wasn't even turning.
    Im not so convinced it was just a tire punture.

    Also I was watching some of the other stuff on youtube and the French version has dif video feed angles than the American one.
    I thought that was interesting.
    And just now typing this I am thinking it parallels a lot of what we are " fed " these days.
    Youtube is a good tool.

    Good stuff Search, good stuff.

    They are astonishing cars these days. Last one I heard sounded like beelzebub was living in the engine bay. Unholy powerful noise that shook you to the core close up. It was a benze that howled like nothing I have heard, made the V10 F1's sound limp dicked.

    Thought you were talking about the old Pontiac Lemans car, haven't seen one of those in many years.
