The Ford GT is at Goodwood these days to relax and unwind after claiming the win in its class last weekend at Le Mans.

Ford’s triumphant return to Le Mans is being celebrated this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed where Ford Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Dirk Müller and Marino Franchitti are taking the #66 GT for a spin. Marino Franchitti is one of the drivers of the #68 Ford GT that took the win last weekend in the GTE Pro category half a decade after Ford scored a superb 1-2-3 win at the 1966 Le Mans. Last weekend, the #69 GT race car crossed the finish line last weekend in third place, while the #66 and #67 GTs finished fourth and ninth, respectively.

Swapping the famous Circuit de la Sarthe for the 1.16-mile hill climb course at Goodwood, the #66 GT race car is not all alone since it’s joined by a plethora of other Fords.

Ken Block’s Fiesta STRX43 from Gymkhana 8 is also on location and it’s arguably one of the most spectacular Fiestas ever built. With a massive 650 hp and 900 Nm of torque coming from a tuned 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, the insane supermini rockets to 60 mph (96 kph) in a mere 1.8 seconds.

Another Ford that you can check out at Goodwood is the Mustang RTR that came to life primarily thanks to drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. It’s one of the most powerful Mustangs out there, pushing out a massive 735 hp from its supercharged V8 engine. It also benefits from an adjustable suspension which brings a lowered ride height while the beefier body is a perfect match for the strong engine.

Other Fords at the festival include the newly introduced Mondeo ST-Line joining the already available Fiesta and Focus ST-Line models, along with the mighty F-150 Raptor which is being driven by none other than Ben Collins, Top Gear’s former Stig.
