The Birth of a Legend - GT40 1964 - 2024


The legendary Ford GT40 was one of Slough Trading Estate's great success stories. Built by the Ford Advanced Vehicle section at Slough to compete in European high performance sports car races, it won the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hour race from 1966 to '69, snatching the crown previously held by Ferrari. Want to know more? You're in luck! Slough Museum is holding an exhibition all about it on Sunday 21st April from 11.30am to 3.30pm at their Buckingham Avenue premises.

Thank you to Richard Emerson on the Slough I Remember Facebook Group
