MT BDC: "Why no Ford GT?" (this is why)

“Of course we asked, and Dearborn initially agreed to send one of its low-slung, 647-hp supercars. But two weeks before we were due to start testing, Ford suddenly pulled the car, for reasons the PR department requested we not make public. Send your emails to Ford Motor Company. Maybe they’ll tell you why one of the most exciting driver’s cars ever to carry the Blue Oval wasn’t at BDC.”

Looks like Ferrari was scared, too.

The GT2 RS killed at Laguna Seca (BDC)as well:

There are gasps of disbelief when the clock stops: 1:28.30. It’s the fastest lap ever recorded at Laguna Seca by a street-legal production car on street-legal tires, 0.35 second quicker than the absolute record Randy set in the quasi-race Viper ACR for a Dodge PR stunt in 2016. And the ber-911 did it easily. “It’s balanced, working all the way through the corner, right on the edge of the maximum grip,” Randy enthuses.”
