Ford has four of the top five positions in their class for the "provisional pole" at Le Mans.  They may get another pole position session in today, but rain may prevent any changes in the line-up.  Things are looking pretty good for a shot at the class win.

Apparently there was a post qualifying/pre-race BOP (Balance of Performance) change to slow the Ford GTs;  and give some help to the other competitors in the class.  Maybe Ford ought to race a Model T next year; and have all the other competitors get weighted and restricted until they are all equal.

My buddy works with the corvette racing team part time and he was posting pictures of sandbags referring to the Ford team.
