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.
