“It is very exciting that the Ford GT is heading to the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a win already to their credit,” said Dan Sandberg, president and chief executive officer, Brembo North America. “With the anniversary of Ford’s last win at Le Mans 50 years ago, this year’s 24 is going to be special. We have enjoyed a great working relationship with Ford on the race car and you will see those benefits once the Ford GT road car hits the streets in 2017.”
