08 Feb “Ford vs. Ferrari” Gets our Vote!
“Ford vs. Ferrari”, the Oscar-nominated film up for Best Picture, tells the story of one of the most epic rivalries in sports – when Henry Ford II decided he wanted to show up Enzo Ferrari at the Le Mans, a prestigious 24-hour race in France. It was the Ford GT40 that got the job done.
WLNE, the Providence ABC affiliate, visited the Newport Car Museum’s exhibit dedicated entirely to Carroll Shelby – an automotive icon who helped bring the GT40 to life, and a major character in the film (portrayed by Boston-native Matt Damon). You’ll love their take on connecting the Museum to the movie!
