The Ford GT debuts new face-to-2018 in Snetterton


With almost a month and a half of summer break, it is inevitable that the manufacturers in the WEC use these weeks to evolve their prototypes and GT before to focus its efforts on the 6 Hours of Mexico that will compete for the first weekend of September. For this reason, and only a few days ago, Porsche Motorsport performed a test with his Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. All in all, it has not been the only brand to work on the track, the whole time Ford has made a test with the Ford GT at Snetterton during the last week to evaluate some solutions for your GTE / GTLM.

Stefan Mücke and Olivier Pla were in charge of the completion of this test on the Ford GT in a Snetterton that presented a wet asphalt during a large part of the testing session. All in all, the two pilots of the american manufacturer in the WEC completed more than 500 kilometres of testing with the unit test of the Ford GT and they were able to assess without problems, the components and innovations that may arrive in 2018. In this aspect, Ford Chip Ganassi Team UK carried the weight of this test, although the information will be shared with those responsible for the program IMSA.

As it is logical, have not transcended big data on the test of the Ford GT in the layout of Snetterton, although ‘Dailysportscar’ has revealed that it was a general test of development. All in all, this means adventure to say that a large part of the news of the Ford GT at the track located in the county of Norfolk were related with the management and the electronic systems, as well as with the hydraulic system. It remains to be seen if the brand takes the decision to apply a Kit EVO to your GTE, the entire time that the regulations of the WEC allows a update for every approval.
