“To win a race, you have to have incredible commitment,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president and president of North America. “This film captures the teamwork and challenges the team encountered and overcame living up to the Ford GT’s iconic heritage.”
The documentary, helmed by Emmy Award winner Erich Joiner, goes behind the scenes with never-before-seen footage of the development process for both the Ford GT race car and its production car counterpart.
“As a director and an avid racing enthusiast, I set out to make a passion project of a movie,” said Joiner. “I was able to shoot things that very few people ever get to witness about building a world-class race car and program. And then putting this new car and team up against the best in the world at the Le Mans 24 Hours. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience I will never forget.”
