Featuring the Last Ford GT to Podium at Le Mans (hint: it's not from the 1960's)

Admission: I have a soft spot for Ford's legendary sports car weapon: the Ford GT.  From the first time I wiped my drool off the yellow Ford GT concept car at SEMA in 2002, I've had a thing for Ford's 2005-06 interpretation. After seeing videos like this, what self-respecting car lover wouldn't want one?!? But after learning of Roberson Racing's success at Le Mans in 2011, I've really wanted learn more about what makes the Robertson Racing Ford GTs, and its team, tick.

Sadly, the media (and Ford) seemed to all but ignore the team and its monumental accomplishments on the Circuit de la Sarthe. This past summer, I tried to change that.

Thanks to Andrew "H" Smith of H Craft for giving me unfettered access to the cars at Road America. Also, thanks to Richard Prince for suppling the photos from Le Mans 2011. Read the feature article here:
