DeltaWing @ Petit Le Mans

One of the coolest cars in the line up this Petit Le Mans was undoubtedly the DeltaWing. Designed but rejected for IndyCar series, funded by a big name in NASCAR/Grand Am: Chip Ganassi, with input from Don Panoz of American Le Mans fame, the car is like nothing else on the track today. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeltaWing) It made its debut in the 24hr of Le Mans this year, crashed out… then crashed out again in Petit Le Mans practice. But once it finally raced in the 10 hour enduro it sparcled, finishing 5th overall!
Looking forward to seeing it again next year!

PS. the part where he says they would have been leading the race had they got passarounds and such, is absolutely true. The car ran very strong.
