Ford GT National Rally 11 September 15-18
The Ford GT faithful are gathering in Austin, Texas for this year’s Ford GT National Rally 11. Capping off a spectacular year of Ford GT racing, attendees have the only chance to see all four Ford GT race cars in action as they compete in the Lone Star Le Mans IMSA and FIA World Endurance Championship (FEC) doubleheader at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA). Since their dÃ©but at the Rolex 24, the 2017 Ford GT race cars have exceeded expectations, pulling off an historic win at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. Catching them in action on the track at COTA promises to be a memorable experience.
Lone Star Le Mans
The Lone Star Le Mans is a Texas twist on the world’s most grueling endurance race. Four classes of cars race together on the 3.4-mile racetrack outside of Austin. Fans can experience two premiere sports car series in one event; the global FIA WEC and the North American based IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship. Competition promises to be tough, since COTA is home to the two Dodge Viper GT Daytona teams.
A Night Finish Followed by Fireworks
Not only can you get up close access to the race cars and their teams at the COTA doubleheader, it’s a night race finish worthy of a Texas style fireworks display. Rally members will enjoy almost nine hours of exciting race action and entertainment – and the hope for another Ford GT victory!
Ford Celebrities Will Be There
Get access to many of Ford’s power players; Raj Nair, Dave Pericak, Henry Ford III, Mark Rushbrook, Chip Ganassi and Camilo Pardo are all scheduled to attend the doubleheader racing event. The entire weekend is a great chance to catch up with fellow owners, talk about all things GT and continue celebrating these amazing cars.
