Ford Racing debuts new global motorsport identifier

From the original 999 of 1901 through the Le Mans winning GT40s of the 1960s to today's array of Ford-powered racing cars around the world,
competition has
always been integral part of the Ford DNA.

Now Ford Racing is highlighting the importance of competition around the world with a new global identifier being applied to race cars supported and powered by Ford.

"Racing Ford products predates the Ford Motor Company, as Henry Ford himself raced and won in 1901 to generate interest for the company he was trying to start," says Jamie Allison, Director, Ford Racing. "We haven't stopped racing for over 110 years - in sports cars, off-road trucks, rallies, stock cars, open-wheel cars, drag racing and lately even action sports like drifting and rallycross. Everywhere drivers compete, Ford is there."
