Ferrari has demonstrated its competitiveness at Daytona throughout the race’s history, with eleven class victories including last year’s victory with the 458 Italia. On the strength of the performance throughout this year’s 24 hours, Ferrari leads the Patron North American Endurance Cup manufacturer standings.
