DeltaWing gains highest qualifying position at Monterey

1 Mins read

The DeltaWing Racing Cars team scored their highest qualifying position for the coupe as proceedings got well under way at Laguna Seca.

The fourth round of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, Don Panoz’s revolutionary racer had a strong day for the entirety of Saturday with practice seeing Andy Meyrick record a time only three tenths off the lead. A remarkable achievement considering the 50 cars on track at the time.

Meyrick said after practice: “This track is a low-grip surface, so it’s difficult to switch the tires on. It’s quite unique in its setup. It was also difficult with so much traffic in the practice sessions, but it was the same for everybody. You had to be very careful. We made a lot of changes to the car through the practice sessions, so we’ll find out in the morning warm up if they worked, though we’ll have plenty of time before the race to sort things out.”

Into qualifying and it was Katherine Legge that took over the DeltaWing’s driving duties and a time of 1:20.327 recording ninth position for the two hour sprint race featuring cars from the P class as well as the GT Le Mans class.

“I got two pretty clear laps in qualifying, which we really weren’t able to do during the practice sessions. There were so many cars on the track, there wasn’t a lap that I didn’t have cars to overtake. But during the race, we’ll have half the number of cars on the track as we did during practice, so that will be much cleaner,” stated Legge.
