This rare 1965 Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype, chassis number GT/111 took part at 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed (FOS) ​​driven fast by Andrew Newall. We are talking about a very rare piece of motoring history, it's one of the four GT40 roadsters built and more generally one of the twelve total prototypes. In its historical past we find participation at the Targa Florio in Sicily driven by John Whitmore and Bob Bondurant where, however, the car had an accident that heavily damaged the chassis. The car had to be destroyed, but fortunately, come to the present day wherein 2007 it was restored at Gelscoe Motorsport. Since then the Roadster has participated in many historical competitions including the Le Mans Classic. The last time I saw it was at the 2011 RM Auction sales in Cernobbio, Italy. After a few years, it's nice to know that the Roadster is in perfect shape and used in the right way instead of collecting dust inside some garage.

Questa rara Ford GT40 Roadster Prototype del 1965, numero di telaio GT/111 ha preso parte all'edizione 2019 del Goodwood Festival of Speed guidata in modo spettacolare da Andrew Newall. Stiamo parlando di un pezzo di storia motoristica molto raro inquanto è una delle quattro roadster costruite e più in generale uno dei dodici prototipi totali. Nel suo passato storico troviamo la partecipazione alla Targa Florio in Sicilia pilotata da John Whitmore e Bob Bondurant dove però ebbe un'icidente che danneggiò pesantemente il telaio. L'auto doveva andare distrutta ma fortunatamente non fu così giungendo ai giorni nostri dove nel 2007 è stata restaurata presso Gelscoe Motorsport. Da allora partecipa a molte competizioni storiche fra cui la Le Mans Classic. L'ultima volta ricordo di averla vista all'Asta di RM Auction presso Villa Erba nel 2011. Dopo qualche anno è bello sapere che si trova in perfetta forma e viene utilizzata nella giusta maniera invece di prendere polvere all'interno di qualche garage.
Un grande grazie agli amici e Youtubers:
