The new Ford GT had its first official running this week in UK, with the two chassis set for the FIA World Endurance Championship having completed a shakedown at Turweston airfield in England.

Marino Franchitti was on hand for the shakedown of the cars, which had completed build at Ford Chip Ganassi Racing’s UK base. A Ford GT40 was also on hand for the occasion on Monday.

Franchitti will be joined by Olivier Pla, Stefan Muecke and Andy Priualx for the full nine-round championship, with the two U.S.-based entries joining them for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Driver pairings for the WEC effort have yet to be announced, nor the three remaining seats for the American manufacturer’s four-car effort at Le Mans.
