DeltaWing Drivers Ready For Lime Rock Debut

1 Mins read

The DeltaWing is set to make its first appearance at Lime Rock Park, fresh off a podium result in the American Le Mans Series at Monterey in May.

Not only will the DeltaWing be making its Lime Rock Park debut, but so will both of the car’s pilots, Katherine Legge and Andy Meyrick, who have never driven at the narrow circuit, the shortest on the ALMS calendar.

“Learning it should be fun,” said Meyrick. “It looks like an awesome little track, very tight, twisty and challenging which will make for great racing, I am sure. Traffic will be very difficult; it’s very short and narrow but that’s sports car racing and that’s why we love it.”

Despite the two-month ALMS hiatus – specifically arranged so drivers can compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans – both drivers have been busy in other forms of racing. Meyrick has been competing in the Blancpain Endurance Series in Europe, while Katharine Legge competed in the Indianapolis 500, finishing 26th.

“It was good to get back into the car after having driven the IndyCar, to get the skills back to the DeltaWing style of driving,” said Legge, referring to last week’s test session at Road Atlanta. “We really are still a development program, so we’ll look to make another leap forward at Lime Rock and work on the rest of the year.”
