Any of you guys going to watch the Le Mans race ....

I' m really intrigued to see how the Delta wing car does in the race i can't believe it only has a 1.6 L engine
and 4 inch wide tyres on the front it has to be one of the most ground breaking cars ever to appear in a race ...

It has proved reliable up until now in testing and hopefully at tonight's qualifying session will prove to be fast ....

It's a shame that Peugeot gave up but nice to see Toyota back in the race ...

I Wonder how long it will be before we see Deltawing in Rfactor .... :D

The Delta Wing is already pretty quick, with laptimes around the LMP 2. And Krumm said that they can run under 3.40x if all goes well Smile

Well the second qual session just start, I'll see if he's right soon Very Happy

I'm quite sure I'll be following this on and off throughout the weekend Smile
The Deltawing looks horrible, I wish them all the misfortune in the world Smile

There must be just a little bit of you that might be curious to see just how good a car this is Twisted Evil

Certainly a peculiar car ... when you think that someone as respected as Carroll Smith always said that one of the worst things that designers insisted in putting in their cars was a narrower front track than the rear ... one must really see this to believe it is competitive Suspect

No rain, but most of teams started to set the car for the race (engine change, complete checkup...) And the battle for the pole was cool Smile (well maybe only beside of the track with the speaker going crazy... very easily)

off topic mais pour ceux qui ne connaitraient pas la reliant robin, top gear a réalisé un test de cette formule1 de route :D



Les turbo et autres auto-moto feraient bien de s’inspirer de nos amis anglais :top:
