TINCKNELL BEGINS EXCITING WEC FORD GT PROGRAMME AT SILVERSTONE

Britain’s Harry Tincknell plans to play a major role in Ford’s FIA World Endurance Championship race debut on Sunday (17 Apr). Harry will mark the race debut of the Ford GT in Europe along with co-drivers Andy Priaulx and Marino Franchitti in their No67 Ford GT in the 6 Hours of Silverstone. ford gt

The new Ford GT, powered by a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine, made its race debut just over two months ago. And while the Ford GT will have only raced three times – all in North America – by the time the Silverstone race starts, Tincknell has set his sights on a competitive showing in the GTE Pro class.

Silverstone marks the first of three WEC races Harry will contest this year alongside his European Le Mans Series programme with G-Drive Racing. He will also race the Ford GT in the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (7 May) and 24 Hours of Le Mans (18-19 Jun). It’s 50 years since Ford’s 1-2-3 overall finish in the 1966 Le Mans twice-around-the-clock race.
