Deltawing Does Le Mans… in rFactor

Remember Deltawing Racing Cars? Back in February 2010, the company was one of the designers to propose the future chassis used for Indycar competition.

Deltawing used rFactor to present a virtual version of their radical chassis concept but despite the neat virtual test drive, the Indycar series decided to go with a more conservative design.

Now, Deltawing is back as the company has joined forces with Highcroft Racing, Dan Gurney & Don Panoz to field a no-less radical new car at the 2012 Le Mans Hours 24 Hour race, using the event’s 56th starting spot for cars that use an innovative concept.

And while Deltawings debut at la Sarthe is still more than 12 months away, the company has once more put together a virtual presentation of their car as the video below shows the Deltawing sports car racer lapping round Le Mans.

    Ive read that Deltawing is just competing for 2012 Le Mans entry whit 2 other designs…

  • DeDios

    I don’t like the car.

  • Lasse Jakobi Ougaard

    Must be difficult to know exactly where your rear wheels are.. 

  • RJC_pt

    Hideous!!!

    I think this project is extremely interesting, and the theory behind the car is genius. I don’t know why people seem to have so much against it. Yes, it may not be the prettiest, but it was about time that someone came up with a radical racing car instead of all the spec cars. I’ll be very much looking forward to see how it performs on track.

    Many articles are written wrong, many are like deltawing allready won and its going to compete but its not true. They are just competing whit others and nobody won yet http://www.lemanslive.com/24h-mans/2011/06/09/aco-press-conference/ or the french site http://www.endurance-info.com/version2/actualite-endurance-7393.html

    this dont look like a car … its look like a jet without wing. they was trying to design a jet and they didnt have enough cash for the wing so they put 4 racing slick on it and voila its a racing car now lol

  • Captain Underpants

    That thing looks like a real hoot to drive. Can’t wait to try it.

  • Wish Bone

    Not sure why people think it looks bad.

    “Oh… it looks too much like a jet”

    WTF? This is a freakin’ all out race car! You dissapointed they didn’t have a marketing team tell them how to design it just to please the lowest common denominator?

    Ya’ll dissapoint me. True racers… not.

  • Wish Bone

    Some of ya’ll that is. How ya’ll like my YA’LL?

  • Ole Marius Myrvold

    Looks weird from onboard though. The wheels… 😛

  • Riches

    Show somebody from the 60 or 70’s a 2011 F1 and ask if they like the design.

  • Samuel Korthof

    Ugly stupid will not like this. Its a trike or something not a car. Ofcourse cars will look very much different than 30 40 years ago. But basics are the same. This is a complete different vehicle.

  • Paul Kelly

    The DeltaWing will receive more media and fan attention than every other car combined in the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans, including the factory prototypes.

    So please tell me what Bowlby and Co. are doing wrong here.
