Watch Ford Return To Le Mans In 360 Video / VR Immersive Journalism
Le Mans is the pinnacle of sports car endurance racing, featuring the most punishing track on Earth. 3 drivers per car share 24 hours of racing from 3 pm Saturday to 3pm Sunday.
50 years ago, the Ford GT took 1st place at Le Mans. This year they came back for more, with an all-new GT. Ford put everything they’ve got into this car, a combination of great work, money, technology, and reputation.
The race started out with rain and the drivers were asked to start off slow. when the sky gets dark, the Ferris wheels light up, and that’s when those people get the best seats in town to witness one of the greatest race. At this point in the race, that’s when the Ferrari is leading with 4 GTs trailing behind.
The race car could enter the pit for as many as 26 times in the 24 hour period of the Le Mans.
While watching this 360 video, my mates and I wonder how the race car driver go to the bathroom, and at 4 minutes and 48seconds in the video, that’s when we saw the drivers actually switched. Must be one hell of a toilet run for these guys!
