What happens when you have the entire Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Team drivers, eight Ford Performance models and a 5.345 km Motorland race circuit near Barcelona, Spain together? Only one sensible thing to do – an all-out track showdown.
Andy Priaulx, Harry Tincknell, Olivier Pla and Stefan Mücke from the World Endurance Championship, and Dirk Müller, Joey Hand, Richard Westbrook and Ryan Briscoe from the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, each took the wheel of a Ford Performance model which includes the Ford F-150 Raptor, Fiesta ST, all-new Fiesta ST, Focus RS, Mustang GT, Mustang GT350R, Ford GT road car and Ford GT race car. Eight cars, one lap, in a no holds barred staggered time trial.
Each car set off at intervals starting from the most unconventional F-150 Raptor to the Le Mans-winning Ford GT race car. While the GT race car emerged as a clear winner, the driving pleasure behind the wheel of all the other vehicles simply cannot be denied. From pure-bred race cars to hilarious pick-up trucks, all the drivers had great fun behind the wheel of a Ford Performance model.
Harry Tincknell, Le Mans 24-Hours driver said, “It was a hilarious shoot. Eight racing drivers all given a car to go flat-out in a race. Anything could have happened, and it almost did! It was amazing to be one of the first people to drive the all-new Ford Fiesta ST, one of the most popular cars in the world and it handled like a dream.”
