The heartbreak of Daytona still stings for the DeltaWing team. After qualifying last, the car lead early on and set the pace, only for tragedy to strike down their hopes for the hundredth time.
With the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring quickly approaching, they are ready to once again showcase the field beating pace they had at Daytona.
Sebring is my favorite race of the season. I’ve had some great memories at this track and I am determined that this year we will make another. I want to thank the team for their fantastic effort over the last few weeks. We are focusing on the Daytona positives and that we are in a much better position ahead of Sebring than we have ever been in the past.
Said a determined Andy Meyrick, in whose hands the car crashed out of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. Katherine Legge who set the blistering pace early on in that race agrees with her co-driver, “I am looking forward to see what improvements we can make at Sebring, the team has done an excellent job of moving forward.”
Sebring is often noted as one of the World’s toughest endurance races for its hard and bumpy surface. It will not suit the DeltaWing as well as Daytona’s smooth banking did, but the little team that could is determined to press on and mix it up with the Daytona Prototype and P2 based cars at the front of the field.
With IMSA’s new regulations for the prototype class in 2017, it may well be the DeltaWing’s last opportunity to run in the half around the clock, Florida classic.
