The Nissan Delta Wing Gets Punted Again



This accident at Road America looks eerily similar to the one at Le Mans earlier this year.

The DeltaWing team is claiming the driver experienced a 7G impact from the Porsche GTC hit. The video shows it was clearly the Porsche driver's fault. It does not help that the DeltaWing is low and has a tiny frontal area, though. You'd think they'd paint it a brighter color because of that...

  1. What a bummer. It looks like such an interesting concept. I hope they get to race this weekend and show what it's really worth. Glad Gunnar is okay.

  2. Lime Green, Signal Orange markings, bright Yellow and red trim, anything that makes you visible helps on a race trac if you are want tostay out of trouble. Black just does not register well enough. If they can fix it, maybe they will add some color. I have a lot of Orange vinyle they can use....

  4. Last I read was the Della Wing project is really having trouble getting more funding for the project... Might be the most expensive penis project in history of racing, LOL!
