Ford GT40S to light up Spa Six Hours

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

A dozen Ford GT40S will be in a field of nearly 110 cars for Satur­day’s Spa Clas­sic Six-hour, the most im­por­tant sin­gle race on the his­toric cal­en­dar.

Last year’s win­ners Roger Wills and James Lit­tle­john are back to de­fend their crown with one GT40, but face a mighty chal­lenge, in­clud­ing from the sim­i­lar car that jour­nal­ist Richard Meaden will share with for­mer grand prix star Ger­hard Berger.

Other front-run­ning GT40S are for Chris Ward/ An­drew Smith and Tony Wood/martin Stret­ton. Head­ing the Jaguar E-type pack will be the cars of Jon Min­shaw/phil Hind­ley and John Clark/howard Red­house/richard Shaw.

The race starts at 1600hrs on Satur­day.
