However the DeltaWing team succeeded in getting its car to Le Mans this year as an experimental entry. Unfortunately the result was less than satisfactory when it was taken out of the race in a crash with Toyota
's TS030 Hybrid LMP1. The team has tried to make another go of it at Road Atlanta for the endurance race known as the Petit Le Mans, but we're sorry to report that the venture is going no better this time. During practise sessions, the DeltaWing was running just 4/10ths of a second off the pace set by the fastest LMP2 car (the class to which the DeltaWing could be most readily compared).
