Ford GT Race Car Completes Slowest Lap Of "Silverstone"

The will make its long-awaited debut at the season-opening race of the FIA World Endurance Championship this weekend, April 17, 2016, at Silverstone. Two GT racers under Chip Ganassi Racing will take to the field with an eye towards making a resounding debut in the WEC. That’s all well and good but before the #86 and #87 racers take to the track, Ford dropped an incredible piece of marketing featuring the aforementioned in the streets of London.

The objective was simple. Ahead of the s debut at Silverstone this weekend, Ford wanted it to get acclimated with the track by having it do a lap around the racing circuit. Seems simple enough, right? Well, thing is that “circuit” is actually the hectic streets of London, which was mapped in such a way to closely resemble the twists and turns of Silverstone. Ford even embraced the whole stunt by describing it “the slowest recorded lap time around its tongue-and-cheek version of Silverstone. Turns out, setting that record proved to be a breeze as the notorious traffic in the megacity kept the Ford GT (that was actually loaded aboard a transport truck) from completing a single lap for two hours and 20 minutes.

The GT’s snail’s pace – or was it the transport truck? – did come with some benefits as awestruck pedestrians who probably didn’t know what was going on were all there, smartphones in hand, to capture the moment. It’s a great way to introduce the Ford GT race car to British racing fans, but let’s all hope that the pace it set in London won’t be what it does when the real racing happens in the real Silverstone this weekend.
