In the 1960s Enzo Ferrari emerged as the dominant force in sports cars in the world, creating speed machines that were unbeatable on the race track. In America, the Ford Motor Company was quickly losing ground as the pre-eminent brand. Henry Ford II saw a solution. He decided to declare war on Ferrari, to build a faster car than anything Ferrari had brought to the track, and to beat him at the world's biggest race, Le Mans. Ferrari was just as determined to see off this challenge from across the Atlantic. With practically no safety regulations in place in the European Grand Prix races, horrific accidents were routine, with both drivers and spectators killed in many races. The stakes were incredibly high, money and men were thrown at the competition, neither Ford or Ferrari would accept anything but victory. The battle to become the fastest in the world truly became a race to the death.184a€”6 preparations for 1966 1: Mans. 249-50. 309. 310. 312 racing successes, 184. 210a€”11, 218. 24-9- 353- 354 Ford-Shelby Mustang GT~H, 357, 358 Ford Thunderbird, 3; Ford 289-cu.-in. engine failures of during races, 239a€”40 in Ford anbsp;...
