Mustang GT3 Achieves Podium Success on its Debut at Le Mans


In a remarkable feat, the Ford Mustang GT3 enjoyed a podium finish at its debut run at Le Mans. This impressive result comes 60 years after the original Mustang’s triumph in the Tour de France Automobile. All three Mustang’s competing in the event completed the gruelling 24 hour endurance race, considered the toughest on FIA World Endurance Championship calendar. 

 The Circuit de la Sarthe witnessed challenging conditions, but the Mustang GT3 rose to the occasion thanks to its precision manufacturing. 

 Leading the charge was the No. 88 car, driven by Dennis Olsen, Giorgio Roda, and Mikkel O. Pedersen, managing to secure the coveted  third-place podium position in the LMGT3 category. The No. 44 car, powered by Christopher Mies, John Hartshorne, and Ben Tuck, followed closely behind in a credible fourth place.

 “Today’s podium performance shows that Mustang can come and compete on the global stage against the best sports cars in the world,” said Mark Rushbrook, Global Director of Ford Performance Motorsports. “It is such a fantastic feeling to be able to do it in the first outing for Mustang at Le Mans. It’s a great testament to our company, our employees and all our fans who are celebrating Mustang’s 60th anniversary this year and all the great partners we have with Proton Competition, M-Sport and Multimatic Motorsports. We’re racing and winning all around the world, but to have a podium here at Le Mans is such a special moment.”
