    Daytona 24 2016

    My schedule is packed and I should be asleep. Have another show to attend in 4 hours.

    Can someone give me a recap of the Ford GT performance overall? I'll read this later in the day.

    Thanks! I caught one of the highlights. It's just awful to not one, but two cars cars put out.
    The lap times are definitely promising.

    The Porsches look amazing and the wide stances are very aggressive......hmmmmm..

    Sounds like Ford had some teething problems. They'll get that fixed. Remember the early races Robert Green had and how you guys learned from that and then won?

    Absolutely. Fun watching the vettes go at it with each other at the end.

    Like anything, gets better with time and effort.
    Ford will come back stronger. The engines are already proven. Just little things. That's racing!

    When is the Ford GT supposed to race next?
