United SportsCar Championship

With the majority of the Prototype class kept off the track as organisers IMSA and tyre provider Continental assess the tyre failures at the root of the crashes for Richard Westbrook and Joao Barbosa on the opening day of testing it was left to the DeltaWing Coupe to lead the final day of 2013 running for the Tudor United SportsCar Championship.

Though much of the P and PC class competitors were forced to sit out the day the DeltaWing was allowed to continue, owing to the unique design of the machine, adding to the miles at Daytona International Speedway, having not tested at Sebring International Raceway.

With Kathering Legge at the wheel the Elan engined coupe lapped the Daytona International Speedway road course in 1:40.833, a little over a second slower than the best time of the first day of running, set by Joao Barbosa in the Action Express Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype.

While Legge’s lap came in the afternoon session a time from the morning session put the #93 SRT Motorsports Viper fastest in GTLM for the third time in the four days of testing across the Sebring and Daytona.

Scuderia Corsa’s Ferrari was the best of a GTD class that provided the majority of the testing field. The class topping time of 1:48.747 was under two second slower than the GTLM leading time of 1:46.912.

The next on-track action for the series will be the traditional Roar Before the 24 test sessions on January 3-5.
