The final stop on Ford Chip Ganassi Racing’s victory lap after winning the Le Mans 24 Hours was at Ford’s Product Development Center in Dearborn, Michigan, to present the winner’s trophy to Ford Motor Company employees.
And JHE was there on July 12 to provide the support needed to make the event go smoothly and effectively.
Drivers Joey Hand, Dirk Mueller and Sebastien Bourdais and team owner Chip Ganassi, along with Ford Performance executives, gathered in Dearborn to make the presentation to the employees. In addition to the trophy presentation, there were question-and-answer sessions and autograph signings with employees.
JHE provided a hospitality trailer with full awning, a 20-foot by 16-foot stage with a 15-foot high roof and backdrop, three covered truss structures to house cars on display, audio video assets and Ford Performance branding and signage.
The cars on display included the No. 66 Ford GT that won Le Mans and the No. 67 Ford GT that finished third.
In total, JHE provided over 25,000 pounds of gear and equipment that required an eight-hour load-in and a five-hour teardown.
