The two brands couldn’t be further apart in terms of a Le Mans returnNonetheless, the live hedge separating the racer from the horse is but a metaphor portraying the real world situation. There’s quite a distance between the two companies’ endurance racing intentions these days.
With Porsche having made its comeback and promising to go for the 1-2-3 any minute now, deciding to return to Le Mans means Ford is just as serious about this as Dave Pericak, the head of the Ford Performance division, was when he told us the Mustang Shelby GT350R is better than a 911 GT3.
On the other hand, Ferrari is currently busy sorting out its Formula One game, as well as reorganizing its internal affairs, from leadership to the expected stock market debut. And while the red assault on Le Mans has been a long time rumor, we don’t have any solid clues yet.
By the way, there’s still time to place your bets for this year’s race.
