Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Ford Returns to Le Mans in 2016 with an All-New GT

Posted June 18, 2015 9:01 AM by dstrohl

In 1966, Ford GT40s swept the podium at Le Mans, signaling to Ferrari that its era of dominance in endurance racing was officially over. GT40s delivered victories at the Circuit de la Sarthe from 1967-'69 as well, but by 1970 the cars were no longer competitive against Porsche's 917. To mark the 50th anniversary of its 1966 first-second-third finish at Le Mans, Ford has announced that its new Ford GT will return to Le Mans in 2016, in a factory-backed LM GTE Pro class effort managed by Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates.
