Nobody took it seriously until the DeltaWing racing prototype actually managed to keep pace at Le Mans last year (before crashing out). And this year it finished the Petit Le Mans in fifth place.
It's that kind of innovation that a major automaker would be eager to get behind as Nissan
did, and the success to spur it on. But reports from the motor racing sphere now indicate that Nissan is withdrawing its support from the program. So just call it DeltaWing, minus the Nissan name, from now on.
