http://www.detroitnews.com - What was meant to be a celebration of the rebirth of Ford’s storied GT supercar instead became a coronation for its crosstown rival. Ford’s GTs suffered a disappointing return to racing in the Rolex 24 at Daytona International Speedway, thanks to braking issues, blown tires and faulty transmissions that forced them back into the garage for hours of the marathon event. While much of the pre-race hype centered around the Blue Oval and its GTs, the final hour of the race was all about Chevrolet’s No. 04 Corvette C7.R, locked in a battle with the No. 912 Porsche 911 RSR for first place.
