    Here are some photos I took from this weekend's Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta and the final American Le Mans Series event.

    This is the famous Delta Wing.

    Also commonly referred to as the Dildo Wing, Delta Wang, and many other nick names.

    It was originally completely Nissan based but then Panoz bought out everything now built this coupe version which uses a high modified Mazda based power plant from Elan. Although it's HIDEOUS and just weird, it goes very fast for what it is, reliability issues aside. The front wheels are the size of bicycle wheels.

    Here is a cool video from when Nissan was working with it, I recommend watching the ENTIRE video, it's actually pretty cool how it all works, I can't stand looking at it but from an engineering standpoint it's very cool.



    Nissan is back building another with the original designer but with a hybrid power plant.

    Oh and Sammich, because most here don't follow racing at all. lol Although Petit was heavily advertised this year. I even saw ads on Pandora.

    Sure, Petit Le Mans is every fall and is by far the largest.

    I'll post up smaller events too though.
