The birth and evolution of the Ford GT – the iconic car that won Le Mans four times in the 1960s – will be explored at an event at the Simeone Museum in Philadelphia on June 4th. The “Birth and Evolution of the Ford GT” will have on display, for the very first time at the same place, all the racing variations of the Ford GT: Mk I, Mk II, and Mk IV, as well as a Lola Mk 6, the car many believe was the inspiration for the Ford GT.
What is your favorite feature on our world-famous 1970 Porsche 917-043? This is your chance to see all the little details that makes this historic race car a legend.

We know that if you are a fan of the museum, then you also love our Demo Days! Where else in the world can you learn about, and later see, some of the greatest race cars in the history of racing? We were recently putting together concepts for our 2023 season and came to the realization that we had never included one of the most valuable resources in that conversation, you!
