Watch: Ford GT completes slowest 'Silverstone' lap ever (on a truck, in London)

Ford paraded a Ford GT race car through the streets of London this week on a transparent lorry to create what it is dubbing the slowest Silverstone lap ever.

It comes ahead of the FIA World Endurance Championship, starting this Sunday at Silverstone, which will see two Ford Chip Ganassi Racing 'WEC' GTs make their competitive debut.

The lorry took an 11.9-mile route – matching the length of the Silverstone course. It started and finished at Southwark Underground station, taking in landmarks such as Old Spitalfields Market, Tower Bridge and St Paul's Cathedral.

The journey took a little over two hours.
