Fairbairn mashes the 1966 Ford GT Mark II’s throttle, unleashing the brapp of its NASCAR V-8 as it echoes off the safety walls of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Todd Lassa writes for Motor Trend. “The GT40, to use its nickname, feels at home here, even if it has no racing history at the 2.5-mile oval. The wry New Zealander piloting this Le Mans icon around the central Indiana circuit has a little more history with this car, chassis number 1032. In the 1980s he was a wrench for race teams in Europe, and now, as a restorer for the IMS Museum’s sprawling, 400-car collection, Fairbairn is giving taxi rides in the British-bodied, big-bore Yank winner of the Greatest Spectacle in French Racing to the men who restored it.”
