Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt talk about their win at 1967 24 Hours with Ford (video)

The "race of the century" included a special exploit at the 24 Hours of Le Mans: victory for a 100% American driver line-up (Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt) with a 100% American team (Shelby-American Inc.) with an American car, the legendary Ford GT40.

This year, Ford is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the second of its four consecutive victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. On Thursday evening for the occasion, the American marque awarded the Spirit of Ford trophy (Dan Gurney won it in 1999) to A.J. Foyt (read article) and reunited the duo with the winning car in Long Beach, California. A.J. Foyt, in his inimitable Texas accent, and Dan Gurney, took part in an interview conducted by the American magazine RACER, and described their memories of that very special 35th edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
