One of the star attractions at The Forecourt Show will be a full-scale replica of one of the greatest sports cars of all time, the Gulf Ford GT40, which will be on display as part of Gulf Retail’s sponsorship of the event entrance at the NEC.

Gulf won back-to-back victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1968 and 1969 as the GT40 dominated endurance racing and, like other marques such as Porsche, McLaren and Aston Martin down the years, adorned the famous powder blue and orange Gulf racing colours that remain synonymous with performance and technological advancement.
