​The Real Story Behind 'Ford v. Ferrari'

8 137
Nominated this year for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, the film "Ford v Ferrari" tells the story of the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, the world's most prestigious endurance race. While the movie covers the race's underlying rivalry between auto giants Ford Motor Company and Ferrari, its true focus is on the two men, played by Matt Damon and Christian Bale, who helped develop Ford's racing program and establish the American automaker as a force to be reckoned with on the track. We highlight the real story of Ford v. Ferrari with some of the details that didn’t make it to the big screen.

A história real é que homens de negócio norte-americanos são trapaceiros, mentirosos, incompetentes e criminosos, nem vou mencionar a capacidade e expertise no campo da engenharia mecânica e fabricação, que roubaram historicamente de diversos povos enquanto arrotam moralismos e seu patético tecido social vivem de abstrações fantasias.

Let's not forget that Carroll Shelby said that one of the best Racers he's ever seen in his lifetime is Ken miles. Carroll Shelby said that there's only a handful of racers that have that Sixth Sense a third eye in racing, Ken miles was one of them. Carroll said you develop this "Gift" in racing where you not only know how to drive but you know the car and what it needs and what it don't that's something ken miles had.

Ken Miles is a legend and the true triple crown champion. Enzo only respected 2 men in the ford team..."Shelby" and the legend himself "Ken Miles"

"Ford finally took his program to Carroll Shelby owner of Shelby America and a former La mans winner himself" that's my favorite part. 🇺🇸🇺🇸

John Wyer, not Carroll Shelby modified two older GT Mark Is to win the Le Mans in 1968 and 1969.
Furthermore, the movie's 1966 Ford Mark IIs' body/chassis were British built; the 1967 Ford Mark IV was American built a year later.
The number 29 red Ferrari that crashes in the race actually beat 10 of 13 Ford GTs at Le Mans in 1966 to win the GT class.
During the 1966 Daytona 24 hours Ken Miles won by 8 laps, the movie is completely wrong.
Ken Miles was actually 4 laps ahead of the second place black #2 Ford GT driven by Bruce McLaren when he (Miles) was ordered by Carroll Shelby, Henry Ford II and Leo Beebe to slow down and allow this other Ford GT to catch up with him (Miles) to be on the same lap; thus costing Ken Miles from winning the 1966 Le Mans and the triple crown ever. It was also because the ACO ruled that Ken Miles' race car traveled 20 meters less in distance than Bruce McLaren's race car from where they first started. Even without this ruling Ken Miles knew he lost at the finish line because Bruce McLaren gunned his car to cross first over the line. Ken Miles was actually robbed from a team driver, team manager, corporate executive and Ford's owner.
This order from these three to Ken Miles was not just for a photo finish which they could have still done with Miles remaining 3 to 4 laps in the lead it was to have him (Miles) lose because he (Miles) did not fit FORD's corporation image as their race driver boy.
Ken Miles died in the Ford J-Car while testing it on the track, but Carroll Shelby failed to do his job having an degree in Aerodymanics and skipped testing the car in a wind tunnel that was to be done.
I greatly resent that the whole movie portrays Carroll Shelby as a nice guy especially to Ken Miles; "what a joke!"

I haven't watched the movie yet but it looks like Matt Damon might want to tweak his face for a future film. His face has looked like a deformed clay crust or something. He needs his face sharpened.

Tbh ford has never respected their drivers which explains why Ferrari can maintain its position while ford step down for nothing.
1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy (Saturday)
5. Honor thy Father and thy Mother
6. Thou shalt not kill
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery
8. Thou shalt not steal
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness
10. Thou shalt not covet
Are you guilty of breaking any of GOD'S TEN COMMANDMENTS above? These are GOD'S standards by which all of mankind is held by. If you are guilty of breaking even one, your debt owed is to perish in the lake of fire for all eternity. This is why we all need Jesus Christ! A sinless man, GOD'S only begotten Son. Who took all of our debt/sin onto the cross with him, and killed our debt/sin and himself on the cross. Then buried our debt/sin as he was buried. Then Jesus was raised from the dead by the Father three days later, defeating death and sin on the cross for us. And those who repent of being a sinner and receive Jesus as Savior, and choose to follow Him as Lord over their life, have their debt paid in full by Him.
You will be saved and receive GOD'S grace, mercy and forgiveness for your sins. And you will not perish in the lake of fire, but have everlasting life through Jesus Christ and the blood He shed for us on the cross!!!
WOULD YOU LIKE A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST? WOULD YOU LIKE TO GIVE YOUR LIFE TO HIM TODAY? He loves you and is calling you to him. This is a relationship of free will and not a religion of man.
Adam, the first of mankind to be created by GOD, brought sin into the world because of his disobedience toward GOD. So by Adam, all of mankind was born into sin through a generational curse (Genesis 2&3/Romans 5:12). According to GOD and his Word, the wages of sin is death. Perishing in the lake of fire for eternity. Eternal torment where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth (Romans 6:23/Revelation 20:14/Matthew 13:49-50).
So while we were yet sinners, GOD commanded his love toward us and sent his only begotten Son Jesus, who is a sinless man (2 Corinthians 5:21), to die for all the sins of mankind and to free us from the curse, by becoming the curse for us (Romans 5:8/John 3:16-18/Galatians 3:13). And to set us free from perishing for our sins through the forgiveness of GOD, and through the shedding of Jesus's blood on the cross (Ephesians 1:7-12). This is GOD the Father's gift to the world through his grace, to those who are called to his Son (John 6:44), and receive his Son Jesus Christ through Faith (Ephesians 2:8-10). Because Jesus is the only way to the Father and eternal life in Heaven (John 14:6).
By confessing with your mouth that you are a sinner, in need of Jesus as The Lord and Savior over your life. By confessing with your mouth that "Jesus is the Lord" And believing in your heart that GOD the Father raised his Son Jesus from the grave three days later. Defeating death and sin on the cross, and becoming the one and only true living God having victory over all (Romans 10:9-10). Then asking GOD to come into your life in a relationship with you. And to fill you with his Holy Spirit. Then you will be saved and recieve eternal life in Heaven through Jesus Christ, adopted as GOD's child (Romans 8:14-16). And through your new relationship with Jesus, you accept him as Lord over your life and follow him and his Word (The Bible) (John 14:15-21/Matthew 12:50). As the scriptures say, no man or woman can say that "JESUS IS THE LORD" but by the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 12:3).
ACTS 16:30-31 KJV
30. And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
31. And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
