CART This year marks the 100th anniversary of Ford’s debut in motorsport. Historian Graham Robson summarizes a Century of achievement. On 10 October 1901, Henry Ford's brand new racecar won its first ever event at Grosse Point, Michigan, USA. As a result of that win, he gained sufficient financial backing to set up the Henry Ford Company, and the world-famous marquee was founded. Since that debut victory, in a century of motorsport, Ford-powered cars have won countless races, rallies and speed record events and numerous national and world championships.
