Deltawing Coupe Shows Speed At Mazda Raceway

DeltaWing Racing Cars took another step forward at Mazda Raceway today, as the revolutionary coupe paced among the leaders in morning practice and earned its highest qualifying position to date for tomorrow’s Continental Tire Monterey Grand Prix.

The two-day event got off to a bang in morning practice, as driver Andy Meyrick set a quick lap of 1:20.603, barely three-tenths of a second off the lead time. With more than 50 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship cars on the track during the practice sessions, lap times were at a premium. Katherine Legge put the DeltaWing coupe’s straight line speed on display during qualifying, setting the quickest top speed of the field at 154mph on the way to a ninth place starting position with a time of 1:20.327.

Tomorrow’s races will not hold nearly the number of cars on the track at one time as did today’s practice sessions. The series will split the field into two races – the first race for Prototype Challenge and GTD cars, while the second race will feature the Prototype and GTLM classes. Both races will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.

Katherine Legge
"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.”

Andy Meyrick
“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.”
