Eight Ford GT 40’s for the S.A. TT

In the days of the Kyalami nine hours we raved when we had 3 Ford GT 40’s in the race. Well for the 1st February there could be as many as eight of these mighty racers on the grid. Dino Scribante, Ross Lazarus, two from Sweden, one from Holland, Oliver Dalais and a special GT 40 from Cape Town.
The Ford GT40 was the car that topped Ferrari at Le Mans. The last 24 hour that Ferrari won was in 1965 with an unexpected win in a private Ferrari 275 LM.

In the next four years it was the Ford GT40’s that ruled the roost.
The final win coming from Jackie Ickx when he beat Hans Hermann Porsche 910 by less than three seconds after 24 hours of racing!
