Just paid for poster. If #43 is available that would be great, but I'll take whatever I can get.

See you all tomorrow!

You can’t miss it. The MkII and Txviper’s purple machine are sitting right outside it.

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

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 :).

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.

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:

A special Thanks to Dave for an outstanding event. Your efforts are appreciated! Also thank you Billy for a wonderful route thru the mountains that gave us all our adrenalin fix for the week. But without all the forum members that came and made the gathering so much more. We had a great time with outstanding weather. Please keep the gatherings coming. Thank you all.

When you watch Dave buzzing around like a worker bee you have to appreciate his effort. Another special thanks to Dave for a great event and Ford Performance. Was great to chat with Ford family members along with the Ford Performance team members and drivers. Of course the best part of the event was seeing the other forum members and their better halves.

Gentlemen,

Edsel told us that all good things must come to an end. So it is with this. One last time, watch #66 & #67 running 1 & 2 with 3 hours to go. Damn, just damn.
