“Miles to Go” Ford v Ferrari Print
Artist Alan Greene
In 1966 Ford finally won the prestigious 24 hours of Le Mans with a 1,2,3 finish. Ken Miles, who led the race, slowed down at the end, being laps ahead at the time, to let the other two GT40 entries the ability to catch up and cross the finish line together for a photo opportunity that Henry Ford II wanted for promotional purposes. The win was taken away from Miles when it was determined that a dead heat was impossible due to Bruce Mclaren’s car starting 20 yards behind Miles at the start of the race, thus having traveled further at the finish. This abstract piece depicts the battle between Miles and the Ferrari in a fender to duel just before the number 21 retired with engine problems as it tried to keep up with the Ford’s top end performance.
