It took 3 weeks, 40,000 bricks, and plenty of patience – it’s the LEGO version of the Ford GT that raced at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
At 1/3 the size of the real thing, the LEGO version went on display at Circuit de la Sarthe, in France, on 18-19 June, alongside a model of the classic Ford GT40 – a reminder that it is 50 years since that car scored it's historic 1-2-3 at the legendary race track.
