For the first time, both the CGR Ford GTs will wear special throwback liveries in honour of IMSA’s 50th birthday. 

The #66 Ford GT of Joey Hand, Dirk Müller and Sébastien Bourdais will wear the colours of the Roush Racing Motorcraft Ford Mustang that John Jones, Wally Dallenbach Jr. and Doc Bundy drove to a GT1 victory at the Rolex 24 at Daytona in 1985. Jones won the IMSA championship title in the GTO category after dominating the competition that year.

Richard Westbrook, Ryan Briscoe and Scott Dixon’s #67 will carry a throwback tribute to current race team partner Castrol. The lubricant company’s iconic green and red stripes are accented with the Castrol Edge logo and adapted to the Ford GT’s lines.
