Sorry guys, some of you obviously don't understand Ford's rationale. Why did they build the '05/06 GTs? To celebrate the company's centenary. Why are they building the new GT? To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of winning Le Mans. How many times did they win Le Mans? Look at the numbers on the racecars, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969 - four years. Ford's racing programme isn't about the competition, it's about the history. When they're done with the programme, they're done. Oh, and it's not just limited by the autoclave, there are multiple crunch points in the build schedule that mean one per day max. Don't be surprised if Multimatic can't achieve that target, they are currently well behind schedule.
