    I'm excited for the start of the ALMS and WEC season. Looking forward to seeing the Audi's over here, although I wish the Toyota was coming too. It looks like a contender.

    That's a great picture Paulie. Yes I'll be here to watch the 12hrs, hope it is as much fun as the Daytona thread was.

    Isn't the Deltawing supposed to debut at Sebring?

    There's a small possibility that I might be going to this year's 12Hrs of Sebring. Gf's brother, who now lives in Europe and is a huge enduro fan (got me more into it), said he'll be visiting US around this time frame and he's always wanted to go. It lands close to his bday. I told him I've read that it's boring in person but he just wants to experience it once. If he goes, I'm going.

    As far as I know, it's a Le Mans entry only, within the "Garage 56" program set by the ACO and only able to enter their own race.

    With a packed grid of proper race cars the Wang will only be running demonstration laps.

    Will it? Is that a proper info you got there or you just typed that to have one more go at the wang? :lol:

    It will be doing demo laps....the grid at Sebring is expected to be 64 odd cars, not a track to have some random one off car racing in such a packed grid.

    How bout, if I and others want to call it the DeltaWang because of its appearance I shall without someone to tell me to be more mature about it.

    I only live 2-3 hours from the track, so I hope I can make it this year. It would be so lovely if I'm able to! But I don't think my parents will survive 12 hours..

    Two big anniversaries in one year: 50th 24 Hours of Daytona and 60th 12 Hours of Sebring. North America's two greatest endurance races celebrating length histories.

    Nice!

    I love these longs races. 24 hour races take the cake. 12 hours, into the night!

    If you want to talk about a sport created and played by adults, you act like an adult? That's what we are asking...we don't need every conversation descending to the level of bathroom humor, just so you can get a pointless cheap joke in to raise your post count.

    Eh, let Stavelot be. The forums can't be entirely serious 24/7. And so far the topic is going on strongly, although its slightly off course now.:)

    Besides, you don't think the entire sportscar world had a nice chuckle at the car's shape? Even professionals need to goof off from time to time.

    But moderators gotta moderate to keep things level.

    Anyway, those narrow tires look really awkward to me. And it's lack of width tells me that it won't last as long. But this car is supposed to be very light right?

    This car is turning out to be more and more of a troll car. Many members and fans may hate the aesthetics of it, but you have to credit highcroft for sticking with the project.

    If it indeed pulls off a surprising result, I expect them to smoke a cigar.

    Hi guys, my first post. I'm trying to find more info on Sebring and the cars that will be in it and I stumbled upon this forum. Here's a link to the Delta Wing car with more info for those of you that haven't seen it. http://www.americanlemans.com/primary1.php?cat=news|16471

    Also, I see they released a list of cars participating in the winter testing at Sebring. Anyone going to this? I'm thinking of heading down there myself.
