Why Ford Should Race The new Mustang At Le Mans - Motorsports Commentary - Road & Track

There’s a lot of backchannel chatter about Ford and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. R&T heard a P2 proposal is out there, just waiting to be approved. It actually makes sense. Previously, a GT campaign timed to to coincide with the Mustang’s 50th anniversary was a possibility as well, but it got shut down. Minds can be changed and here’s a few arguments for it:

  1. This would actually be a pretty amazing car.A GTE-class Mustang would be something to behold.
  2. Marketing – If ever there was a time, the year of the 50th anniversary and globalization of Mustang sales are imminent. That should be capitalized on.
  3. Rivalry – Between domestics like the Corvette and Viper or more exotic competitors like Porsche, Ferrari and Aston Martin, there’s plenty of combat to induce.
  4. Great history, but never here. With all of Fords history it has little to talk about with the Mustang at Le Mans. Time to add that chapter.
