“We have data analysis around every piece of our race car. We have 300 sensors on a race car. We pull down one and a half terabytes of data a weekend. And for those who don’t know what that means, that’s 10 million documents, that’s about 400 movies….and we will run 50 million simulations over a race weekend. We have to make split-second decisions, so we have to rely on the data.“
