Sparing no expense, Ford scored a historic victory at LeMans in 1966. The Shelby-American entered GT40 MK 2 driven by Chris Amon and Bruce McLaren was declared the winner, breaking the 3000 mile /125 mph barrier for the first time. The image shows the winning car as it passes through the White House corner on the final lap with the second placed car of Miles and Hulme, both being followed by the similar car of Bucknum and Hutcherson. The dead-eat that was planned by Henry Ford 2nd was technically impossible since the cars had started 20 meters apart.
