As just announced last month, GT Academy champion Lucas Ordoñez has been selected to drive the unique and radical Highcroft Racing Nissan DeltaWing prototype car at the prestigious Petit Le Mans endurance race, taking place this Friday and Saturday at Road Atlanta.
After rebuilding the car from this violent accident during a Wednesday practice session, the team is once again ready to go in what appears to be a very competitive car around the circuit.
Their stated goal, however, is to simply complete the 10-hour/1,000-mile race.
