The first GT40's resembling the Mk2 made their appearance at the 1965 LeMans. The cars featured Ford's 427 cubic inch V8. Although the cars had to retire from the race, one of the Mk2's qualified at pole with a new track record. Throughout the rest of 1965, Ford focused on developing the Mk2 for the 1966 LeMans.

In 1966, Holman & Moody joined Shelby American as a racing team. With the additional cars, the Mk2 took 1-2-3-5 at the very first 24 Hours of Daytona. The winning Mk2 was from the Shelby American team and was driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon. The Mk2 continued the winning streak in March with a win at Sebring by a Mk2 roadster driven by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby. The Holman & Moody team also did well with a second place finish by a Mk2 driven by Walt Hangsen and Mark Donohue.

At the 1966 LeMans, the Mk2 made history with a 1-2-3 finish. The winning Mk2 was driven by Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon, which set a new average race speed record of 125.4 mph. The second place Mk2 was also a Shelby American car driven by Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby. Ronnie Bucknum and Dick Hutcherson drove the Holman & Moody to third place.

1967 started off on a bad note at the 24 Hours of Daytona. All six Mk2's entered left the race with transmission failure. This race saw the end of the Mk2, which was replaced by the more aerodynamic Mk4.
