Ford beebe le mans. This was the first overall win at le mans for the ford gt40 as well as the first overall win for an american constructor. As the overall leader of the ford team leo beebe understood his mission perfectly ford would win at le mans. Ford s first two defeats at le mans in 1964 and 65 were overseen by another persnickety brit john pappy wyer shelby s former boss on aston martin s racing team but pappy did get into heated. But instead of euphoria on the podium chris amon and bruce mclaren who were classified first were strangely subdued.
The story covering ford s effort to win the 1966 race at le mans pits buck the system car designer carroll shelby matt damon and volatile driver ken miles christian bale against corporate micromanagers organization men and busybodies who look for obedient team players and hammer down protruding nails like shelby and miles.

To understand the le mans effort for ford in the middle 1960s means one has to think in terms of a team with a mission.
I have an open mind and i would love to hear your stories. Leo wasn t told to have a particular driver or pair of drivers win. A good chunk of james mangold s ford v ferrari is devoted to a diligent recreation of the 1966 24 hours of le mans race and it all leads to a climax that if you don t know anything about it. It was a clash of automotive titans.
I encourage anyone with knowledge of beebe or hfii at the time to come forward. Even the youngest of beebe s coworkers at ford would have to be at least in their late seventies or older.
