Ford to take part in the Bruce McLaren tribute parade at the Goodwood Revival

1969 Mk III GT40 road carFord is  taking part in a tribute parade to 1966 Le Mans winner and Formula 1 driver, Bruce McLaren, who drove the winning GT40 at Ford’s “1-2-3” Le Mans victory in 1966, alongside co-driver, Chris Amon. Ford announced its return to Le Mans earlier this year with a new GT race car that will compete in the competition 50 years on from that famous win.

2015 marks the 45th anniversary of Bruce McLaren’s death, and Goodwood Revival will pay tribute to the late racing driver through the Bruce McLaren tribute parade, taking place each day throughout the Revival weekend.

Ford’s two historic GT40s will be in action throughout the weekend as course cars operating between races and practice sessions, on display in the vehicle assembly area in-between and with one car supporting the Bruce McLaren tribute parade.
