The 24 Hour War-Facts missing,FORD GT was the LOLA GT by Eric Broadley,AJ Baime is no Automotive Historian.
23 April 2017 | by venomjrl312See all my reviews

The Ford-Ferrari or Ferrari-Ford Battle has been told so many times in Literature and Media that frankly it can became almost boring to me after awhile. I saw this free streaming before deciding to buy it,First off While Corvettes are given their due on how unbeatable they were in American Sportscar racing the 24 hour war seems more like a propaganda piece for The Ford Motor co in selling their new emasculated(read Politically Correct,Ecoboost) Ford "GT"(v6 really?)I lean towards Ferrari Despite not being a A overly big fan of the tifosi (Ferrari Fandom).My bias and outright disgust for all Things blue- oval is legendary(having owned them.)But to the "Film" or "Documentary". first off Chaparral(Chevrolet powered innovations,won outright the Nurburgring 1966)Despite the footage shown of 1965 Sebring the famous deluge race the Chaparral winning the race outright is not Mentioned,FORD did not Win the race,Chevrolet in the form of Chaparral did.From the very start the FACT the Ford GT/GT40 was/is a Lola GT from England with a Ford motor in it is not mentioned,one raced with a Chevy in the Mecom colors in the Form of the original Lola GT at Nassau(the only chevy Engined one,still around today).Corvette Grand Sports Whopped Shelby At Nassau outright,no Cheating unlike Shelby and Ferrari.(Fia Paperwork,legality)The Only REAL FORD was the MKIV and by then it was learned from the GT40 from the Lola GT of British Genius Eric Broadley who Sold the program to ford that how's the GT40 CAME IN to being. First off Ralph Nader is in this "film" a guy who single handley ruined a great innovative car like the Corvair which already had it's fix in only to further his failed political ambitions and stardom does this film no favors.A.J Baime who wrote the fluff-piece of a book "Go Like Hell" about the Ford-Ferrari Battle which read more like a National Enquirer rag than a book in order to probably sell into a Motion Picture(Rumored,hopefully it won't come out.)does the film a disservice,he is not a "Historian"just some liberal NY times guy who compares the ascension of The Ford GT to Obama towards the end of his mediocre book.They say sometimes history can be revised in this case despite some good period footage it has been,facts omitted or lazily just left out.To the non-Gearhead or in the know it's an insult to those seeing or hearing,reading about the story the first time it sadly can become facts.It has some seconds of Great footage on the Dx Corvette driven by Dave Morgan and Don Yenko fro Sebring 67',The unrelated but Similarly colored And somewhat DX-Sponsored,Botany500 Corvette from Le Mans 67.The Bizzarrini another Innovative car chevrolet powered That is a true exotic is shown.the Beautiful Ferraris and yes the slippery and Broadley Designed/derived Ford GTs.I saw a Better movie on The Ford GT lately without all the hype and hyperbole of the Liberal Hollywood Establishment behind it like Adam Carolla.Sadly,History repeats itself now we have the Cheaters in the form of the Current FORD GT which thanks to the FIA has been sandbagging and doing dirty tricks.Buyer/Viewer Beware.
