2016 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for fans of sports car racing, specifically in the GT ranks. New regulations and new cars are always cause for excitement and the first to announce their involvement in GTE was Ford when they announced at Le Mans this year that they will be returning to the famed 24 hour race with its brand new GT. It was possibly the worst kept secret in the racing community. But Ford and its partners, Ganassi Racing and Multimatic, were testing the new GTE contender long before the official announcement. See it in action here in their recently released video.
The likes of Corvette and Porsche have announced they will update their existing cars to conform with the new regulations as well. Ferrari is in the midst of their own “worst kept secret,” as it is widely believed they will be announcing their new GTE contender based on the 488 GTB later this year. The future of SportsCar racing looks bright. More on this to come soon and we’ll have any updates as they become public. Stay tuned.
