I really hope the DeltaWing actually proves competitive.

It probably will, in testing its tires lasted 59 laps, the average LMP1 racers tires last in the mid 20s to 30s...and when they change tires it is mandated that there is a driver change, making for a very long pit stop.

Think a very important question is how the drivers will handle the strain of so many laps.

Good. I bet there will be idiots here who one star it and go "Who the fuck cares? BORING!" then later reap the benefits of the engineering and testing and improvements that went into this and eventually trickled down into the commercial market.

The DeltaWing doesn't comply with any current rules. It's running without classification as the 56th entry to the race; a spot traditionally used for experimental, non-competing cars. The car is substantially under weight, as unclassified cars have no minimum. Competing cars also tend to be substantially underweight, but are required to carry ballast to meet weight minimums.

In the official Le Mans test, held a couple days ago, it proved to be 22 seconds off the pace of the leading car (the hybrid Audi R18 E-tron). A victory for the car would be to simply finish the race, as the team has had very little testing for such a radical design.

So this sport has a place specifically for bullshit cars? Why can't the bullshit car make left turns somewhere else and avoid the nonsense? The NFL doesn't have some crackpot run around the field "experimenting"

Damn, that thing looks cool.

More lubricant, thrust, thrust!

also, can we get a na-na-na-na-na-na-NISSAN! tag?

Can someone explain to the ignorant?

it uses a really narrow front track, giving it a super aerodynamic profile. So, it needs much less power to push the car through the atmosphere. So the car has a much smaller engine and uses much less fuel. The narrow front track should cause insane under-steer but i think they combat that with modern racing tires and advanced aerodynamic design.

Which makes it look like a dong.

It really totally does:
