Ford GT to be honored at Carlisle in 2015
The annual Carlisle Ford Nationals are always a special event and, this year, there’s an even greater incentive to attend.
Just one week after the unveiling of the 2017 Ford GT, it has been announced that the 2015 Carlisle Ford Nationals, being held June 5-7, will feature a collection of Ford GTs – from concepts, to historics, racecars and perhaps even a new 2017 model or two.
The popularity of Ford’s famed supercar has led to its prices skyrocketing in recent years, leading many Ford fans, designers and former racers to declare their plans of heading to the show.
The 2017 Ford GT is the first that the company has built since 2006, and there are already talks of the car returning to Le Mans in the near future.
Videos of Ford GT’s legendary history at Le Mans have been collected by RACER.com and can be viewed at the bottom of this article.
