David Hobbs Announced Master of Ceremonies for the Ford GT Reunion 2024 (May 1st)

We are proud to announce that the former driver and commentator David Hobbs will be the Master of Ceremonies for the event! His career as an international racing driver spanned 30 years at all levels including in sports cars, touring cars, Indy cars, IMSA, Can-Am and Formula One. He has participated in the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona. He made twenty starts in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, finishing in 8th place at the first attempt in 1962, following with a pole position and a best finish of third (in 1969 and 1984) to his credit.

We couldn't think of anyone we would have enjoyed having more as our Master of Ceremonies and he will bring much to the event in this role.  For more information on David you can purchase his amazing Autobiography on Amazon or view his 2-page professional biography on our site from the buttons below.
