GTfusiOn GTsport Team World Championship Round 3
We are already in Round 3 of the GTfusiOn GT Sport Team World Championship 2021
First of all, I would like to congratulate the Virtualdrivers by TX3 team for their excellent performance in the overall team ranking. Four Virtualdrivers by TX3 made it into the top 10 in the qualifying rankings. They show us that they mastered the Brazilian subject. We will have to count on them in the race for the 2021 title. [b]They take the lead in the general ranking. Slipped into second place, the Drivers of the WSR - Wise Sim Racers team will have to give everything to stay in the top 3 of the PRO category. Finally, placed on the third step of the podium, the Kimbex Racing Team is the pleasant surprise of this beginning of GTfusiOn. However, we will keep an eye on the Executive Project Team and Prima eSports, who could come and play the troublemaker in the next combo!
Speaking of which, our time machine stopped in 2016 to salute the incredible feat of the Ford manufacturer at Le Mans. Although the story begins on 19 June 1966 with the historic trifecta of the Caroll Shelby-designed Ford team of Bruce McLaren, Chris Amon, Ken Miles, Denny Hulme, Ronnie Bucknum and Richard Hutcherson in the Ford GT40 Mk.II at the French Sarthe circuit.
Fifty years later, on 19 June 2016, at the 84th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in the LMGTE Pro class. Ford performance with the Chip Ganassi Racing team represented by drivers Joey Hand, Dirk Müller and Sébastien Bourdais will first set the fastest qualifying time in the class in 00:03:51.185 and then take a symbolic victory in the new Ford GT in the legendary 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours race. Unveiled in Detroit in January 2015 at the Auto Show, the return of the Ford GT, which has been missing since 2006, is a great delight for visitors. On sale since the end of 2016, it marks the jubilee of the undisputed victory of the three GT 40s on the Le Mans circuit in 1966. The Ford GT is produced in the Markham factory in Canada. It was equipped with the small 3.5 litre V6 (Ecoboost), a new dual-turbocharged engine developing no less than 647 bhp at 6550 rpm. With a weight limit of 1,385 kg, it has an eloquent torque of 746 Nm. Equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission (dual clutch DCT), the Ford GT offers explosive acceleration. The top speed is 360km/h, which makes it the fastest production Ford in history. With its aesthetics, power, aerodynamics and unbelievable handling, Ford engineering has concocted a winning recipe that will continue to write the history of the American brand.
We look forward to seeing you on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of May to experience the Ford GT on the legendary Le Mans circuit for Round 3 of the GTfusiOn GT Sport Team World Championship 2021
