Pretty cool for those folks on TMO who like both Ford and Porsche machines ( we know there are a few, ha ) and Proton Competition ( Germany ) will be fielding one Porsche 963 in the Hypercar Division, yet the long time campaigner of the swift Stuttgart sleds will be running not one, not two, but three Mustang GT3s win the LMGT3 Class. Super cool and knowing the legendary status of the Mustang carries over just as strongly in Europe as in the US ( or the rest of the World ) it is notable to see such a storied team as Proton take on the Blue Oval Beast for the arguably most competitive Class at Lemans -- LMGT3. I guess running Ford and Porsche, the new team kinda is running ...........Forsches , ha!!

Great result for the Mustangs. On the podium with 3rd and 4th in class, the thrid Mustang had major mechanical issues and finished ahead of the last-scored car, a BMW prototype, and just behind Proton's own Porsche 963 prototype.

Slightly off topic but I never realized Multimatic made the chassis for the Porsche 963
I can see the year-end clearance deals from Multimatic now - buy 2 Porsche 963s and we'll throw in a Mustang GT3 for free!
