The FIA World Endurance Championship held its pre-season ‘Prologue’ test at Monza this past weekend, which means it spanned every jokester’s favorite pseudo holiday – April Fools. A racetrack isn’t really a place for joking around, but the Ford Chip Ganassi and Ferrari AF Corse Teams still found a good way to get in on the April Fools fun.
If you want to do it right, there’s really only one way to prank a Ferrari race team: put a Ford in their garage. That’s exactly what the Ford and Ferrari crews did, swapping the teams’ respective Ferrari 488 GTE and Ford GT racecars and surprising their drivers with the presence of their arch rival’s car. The Ford and Ferrari teams may butt heads on track – but it’s clear they have huge respect for eachother.
Check out the lighthearted prank in the video embedded above.
