Ford vs Ferrari

NEW IN 2020, we've added 10 vehicle classes to the Concours and the Virginia Festival of the Wheel will feature a special exhibit of Ferraris, Ford GT40’s, Shelby Cobras, and Shelby Mustangs in tribute to the Oscar Award nominated movie (3 categories including Best Picture), Ford v Ferrari. American automotive designer Carroll Shelby and fearless British race car driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary vehicle for the Ford Motor Co. Together, they compete against the race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.
