To the Editor:
I wanted to make a quick comment regarding Keith Crain's June 27 column on Ford's class win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans ("Le Mans a great win for Ford").
Rather than simply calling it a "win," as others have, Crain compares Ford's winning its class this year with winning its class at Le Mans in 1966, "finishing one, two, three."
As Crain probably knows, the win in 1966 was an overall win, competing against the best in automotive design and technology at the time.
Congrats to Ford for its effort and the successful result. But its class win shouldn't be compared with the effort in '66 or Porsche's overall win in 2016.
Also of note: I couldn't find any mention of Porsche's overall win in Crain's column.
