ALOHA y’all! Long time no talk or see. I can hardly contain my enthusiasm to catch up with old friends & meet new ones. Mr & Mrs Apollo were so kind to transport K081 (I think that’s me) & I’m presently on a plane to ATL. Over the last year or so, I’ve had a few significant events occur in my life. One may be immediately evident to those who know me...upon seeing us.

Cheers!
Looking forward to catching up with you Kelvin!

Dammm, should be an epic gathering! Booked a cycling trip in Italy over a year ago! Good luck to ford on its last race! Being at Lemans In 16 and having Ford win on its 50th anniversary was an experience of a lifetime! Enjoy all! Post many photos! Go Ford!!!

Ed is absolutely correct but perhaps we have a number of new followers on this Forum. Happens every year.

You may post your attendance INTENT within this thread, but to actually get ON the attendance list and get attendance credentials, you must pay for your ticket(s).

Moot point now as the registration page indicates "Sold Out":(
I heard Dr Frank was buying. Damn I was busy with the new GT and missed the original post..and sold out was quick.

This is going to be so good. Last ride of the Ford GT / Ford Performance Racing / Multimatic / CGR and their immortals!

Unfortunately for myself and Susan, we will not be able to take advantage of another epic event organized by DBK and FMC. My Daughter Madeleine turns 15 on the 11th and we will be throwing a Quinceanera for her. She's been waiting for this for most of her life. I'm excited to see her on her big day and celebrate this time in her life. As far as the rest of you go, I'm going to miss the hell out of not seeing you and getting to spend time together. Enjoy!

Such a fun pre-race day. Great location at Spectator Hill, where you can see multiple vantage points of the racing from a nice air conditioned tent, and outdoor deck. Not to mention the striking MK II GT, and a black purple NFGT just outside the deck.

Fun to squeeze inside the Mk II, and then trying to gracefully wiggle out of it, without touching the floorboard.499F8B47-F552-4B5D-977B-DD38CC6F12D5.jpeg896FB8B6-AC2F-4BFB-8328-9430C42DE355.jpeg4C803FA1-24F6-4769-AD17-F54A419C8C74.jpeg

TICKETS

Your tickets for the Ford GT Hospitality will be available to be picked up at WILL CALL. This building is located on Winder Highway just beyond the track entrance. You won't be able to miss it. If you indicated you are bringing your GT, you will have a parking pass for the corral area near spectator hill.

Hospitality Wristbands

You will receive wristbands to enter the hospitality along with some goodies at the check-in desk on Friday.

Transport around the track

We will have 5 golf carts making continuous loops around the track on Friday and Saturday to take guests to various viewing areas. The drivers will be wearing Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Team Gear so flag one down and show them your wristband and you'll be good to ride. Spectator Hill is the best viewing spot on the track, but it is a hike, so this will be convenient to go to other areas.

8-10 AM Continental Breakfast will be available at the unit
12-2 PM Lunch will be served

2:45 - 3:15 PM Driver Appearance - 1 driver from each car will be at the unit to speak

Well I couldn't be there, but the poster makes me feel better :).
Ordered and paid.
Post Script:
If a #19 is available...
I guess it can't hurt to ask :).

You knocked it out of park again! It’s just the beginning of the next chapter. So great to see everyone. Wish those Georgia bars stayed open later?

Theresa and I will be there along with GT0987. This is bittersweet but what an amazing few years it has been traveling with this group to watch the races. Looking forward to whatever comes next.

RALLY 14

Gentlemen,

As always this gathering of the GT faithful has been awesome. The rally drive on Thursday was the most insanely enjoyable high speed run on a smooth twisty mountain road that went on forever and seemed to have about 500 turns ending up in a Swiss like village. The hospitality set up at the track is killer and you’ve seen all the photos but I’ll post one more I like of the cars staged for the rally drive. All the best.

Garen Nicoghosian, Design Manager of the Ford GT program, has done a commemorative piece of artwork for the final race of the program. This print features a visual history of the GT, from the 2015 NAIAS launch and through each phase of the of the race program. Each livery worn in competition is depicted, including test cars and the GTE-AM car that wore Ford GT Forum on its rear fascia.

Signed and Numbered by the artist. Edition of 150. 24" x 36" Canvas. Available for purchase at the link above.

This is a great opportunity to get it signed as the following (and probably more) will be at Petit Le Mans:

Joey Hand
Dirk Mueller
Sebastien Bourdais

Richard Westbrook
Ryan Briscoe
Scott Dixon

Billy Johnson
Olivier Pla
Harry Tincknell

Scott Maxwell

Raj Nair
Larry Holt

Edsel B. Ford II
Henry Ford III
Mark Rushbrook

Congratulations #67, Ford, Multimatic and Chip Ganassi for a hard-fought second place finish in the final race. What a great run.
