QUICK FIXES BY EXTREME SPEED CREW PUTS FERRARI BACK ON TRACK
DAYTONA, FL, Sunday, January 29: Fast work by the Extreme Speed Motorsports crew put the team's Ferrari 458 Italia Grand Am quickly back on track after a visit to the garage just after half way at the 50th anniversary Rolex 24 at Daytona.
Ed Brown pitted just after half way to hand over to Johannes van Overbeek. The team had scheduled a brake pad and rotor change at the stop but were delayed with an air jack problem. The were only able to change the front brakes and sent van Overbeek on his way with new brakes and tires on the front, but old equipment on the rear.
The Californian pushed on to complete the stint before the team took the car back behind the wall to fix the air jack issue, change the rear brakes and take the opportunity to further investigate the fuel sensor issue which had caused trouble previously.
With only four men allowed to work over the pit wall, the move to go back to the garage enabled an "all hands on deck" assault on the issues which were all quickly solved.
van Overbeek was quickly back on the pace - rejoining in 21st place. Scott Sharp is the next scheduled man to return to the wheel of the #03 Tequila Patrón Ferrari.
