From press release
The DeltaWing came out of the box swinging at the start of this year’s 24 Hours of Daytona, setting the early speed pace and battling among the leaders before somes issues surfaced in the second hour.
Andy Meyrick took the wheel for the start of the race after qualifying in fifth position. He battled into fourth position and was aiming at third when a tire puncture sent him into the pits.
Returning to the field in 15th, the DeltaWing coupe set the quickest race lap with a time of 1:41.021 on lap 22 and held fifth position when the team decided to take advantage of a caution period to come in for fuel and tires.
Meyrick was headed toward the front again when transmission issues ended his race.
"It was a bit of a game of poker at the start, to figure out where we were fast and where our positives and negatives were, commented Meyrick."
"The puncture put us out of sequence but it was clear that we had the pace to run at the very front and lead the race. From a drivability point of view, it really does feel like an endurance race car, which is a step forward. So for that, it’s encouraging."
