The Ferrari 458 GT that crossed the checkered line first with Alessandro Pier Guidi at the wheel was finally rewarded the GTD Class victory at the Daytona 24h. Unfortunately, the drivers were not given the privilege of being on the podium since, the No. 555 Ferrari of Team Level 5 Motorsport was given a 75 seconds penalty after the stewards decided that the Ferrari was at fault in the last overtaking maneuver executed on the final lap by the Audi R8 driver Markus Winkelhock.
The decision was then reversed three hours after the race and the Ferrari was then rewarded the GTD class win which it deserved in the first place. The guys at AxisofOversteer have more to tell you about the race. So head on to their blog for more highlights.
