Ford’s history in motorsports is very well documented. From the earliest days of Henry taking on Mr. Winton and kicking his ass to guys like Barney Oldfield setting speed records on ice in the 999 to the incredible 1960s wen the company’s “Total Performance” era was set on nothing short of global domination, racing has been the lifeblood of Ford. In many ways, this continues today. Road racing, NASCAR, NHRA drag racing, small tire stuff, etc. Fords can be found throwing down.
In this video from Goodwood SpeedWeek 2020, we get a look at the top 10 Ford moments from the event. Like everything at Goodwood, these are varied and cool. From rallying Escorts to 1990s Trans-Am Mustangs, there’s a wide array of Ford power and beauty on display.
We’re not sure if the world of 2020 still has the same mindset when it comes to automotive rivalries that other decades had. Ford vs Chevrolet was it for decades. We’re just not so sure that is true. It’s like every company for themselves and Ford continues to be a player.
This celebration of their history in motion and at wide open throttle is fantastic.
