How many applicants so far?
I'm thinking not quite 1000 but close. But I'm actually guessing. It could be 10,000. Well, maybe not that high. I definitely believe it is over 100. Anyone else want to guess?

It's a lot. How many people do you think it took to overload that website?

Ed, I just posted this on another thread, but went back, and things were blank. Refreshing the page got everything back for me.
Thanks Specracer. I tried it before with no luck. I refreshed again a few minutes ago but still blank. Instead of filling out a new one I decided to send an email to the listed help address. I hesitated to bug them as I know they are crazy busy.

Depends on how scaleable the site is? This number is in the hundreds of thousands I would guess.

Early on I had problems and did a force refresh ie ctrl+F on windows firefox. I don't know how to do it on phone or tablet. It seemed to be a stale cache issue

I've hired Chinese hackers to delete your applications.

Here is the email I just received (it didn't work):

Thank you for your interest in the Ford GT.

Betting the vast majority have never owned a GT or ever owned a Ford.

According to 60 minutes you should be using German hackers. Best in the world. I'm sure. Not!

Special Ed, I ran across this too. Took quite a while to find and check all the little boxes to have a clean application accepted.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the Ford GT online customer application, applicants were unable to view their previously submitted application information for a short period of time due to a minor website error. Additional site maintenance has been completed as of this morning, and you can now log back into your application and view your previously submitted application information. We want to thank you for your patience during the time it took for us to repair the website.

Please feel free to contact the Ford GT Team at applicant@fordgtapplication.com if you have any further questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Ford GT Team
