Frictional Losses: Looking back at the 2015 Rolex 24 at Daytona

Last year the Flying Lizard Audi R8 LMS was stripped of a win after a controversial decision reversal which saw the Level 5 Ferrari take the win in the fiercely contested GTD class.

Ganassi won again with their Ford Eco Boost entry gaining themselves a record 6th overall win at the twice-around-the-clock classic. To be truthful, as a class that I do not really follow, this didn’t mean a whole lot to me despite the plaudits that the team certainly earned.
