Expect Ford to be blindingly quick. The pre-test they did at Road America had some very quick laps put in.. while I have no idea what spec it was in, it would have obliterated the GTE pole from 2015. And, as we all know, you don't gain anything testing out of spec other than if stressing components. The gamesmanship they've played has been incredible. P1 will set itself up as the day goes on, but GTE? It's going to be a 1920's, bare knuckled fight for the duration unless something bizarre happens.
