FORD GT40 n.6

HISTORY

The Ford GT40 n.6 is the winning car of the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1969. The American car began to be in difficulty with the new prototypes, the regulation limited the development and the Team John Wyer Automotive Engineering showed up with the same Ford GT40 winning the year before.

Ickx and Oliver won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1969 with the Ford GT40 n.6 with a gap of four seconds on the Porsche 908 n.64 of Hermann and Larousse brought in the race by the Porsche team. The duel was very exciting and in the last hour the two cars surpassed themselves continuously, the highest speed of the German prototype was offset by the higher stability in the corners of American sport.

The race was remembered by the protest of Ickx against the type of departure, which included the race of the pilots on the opposite side where the cars were stopped and many drivers to anticipate the start did not fasten the belts, the Belgian rider did not run and calmly fastened the seat belts. Precisely because of the non-use of the belts at the start the British pilot John Wolfee died on the first lap.

FORD GT40 n.9

HISTORY

The Ford GT40 n.9 is the winning car of the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1968. With the change of rules the American manufacturer had to set aside the winning GT40 MK II of 1966 and the GT40 MK IV of 1967, while Enzo Ferrari did not participate in protest to the race with his official cars. The new rules forced Team John Wyer Automotive Engineering to bring the 4.9-liter MK I version with the Gulf sponsor to the race, but foregoing his Ickx driver injured at the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix.
The race was initially scheduled as usual in mid-June but due to the strikes in France was postponed to September.
