Watkins Glen, N.Y. Jul. 2, 2016 – Panoz DeltaWing Racing will start in tenth for tomorrow’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen International. Legge drove the DeltaWing around the 3.4mile track in 1:38.520.

Completing a total of 57 laps across three practice sessions, the DeltaWing showed consistent improvement with more promising lap times and better handling towards the end. Having worked on the steering since the test at Watkins Glen last month, the team was able to concentrate on the aero set-up. With the high level of grip that the new track offers, the sessions were focused on adjusting downforce to the optimum level.

Legge, Sean Rayhall and Gabby Chaves will be behind the wheel of the DeltaWing in tomorrow’s six-hour race which can be seen live on Fox Sports 1 from 10am ET.

Quoteboard

Katherine Legge: “Our goal was to continue improving and although we had hoped to be further up the grid, we did achieve getting the most out of the car given the allocated amount of practice time. Looking forward to tomorrow’s race. Wish Katie was here with us, but Tim’s doing a stellar job in her absence.”

Tim Keene: “Although it is disappointing to not be quicker than we are, we have made gains over the last couple of days. Tomorrow is a long race so we hope that there will be opportunities to improve on our starting position.”

Gabby Chaves: “We’ve made improvements each and every practice session and will be striving to gain positions in tomorrow’s race. It’s an honor to be back with the team and I want to thank Panoz DeltaWing Racing, Tim Keene and Dr Panoz for the opportunity to race here at Watkins Glen this weekend.”

Sean Rayhall: “Really excited for tomorrow’s Sahlen’s Six Hours of the Glen. The team at Panoz DeltaWing Racing have made great strides with the set-up of the car since the test here last month and I am hopeful for a good result in the race.”

Why the GTP name undermines convergence between IMSA and WEC

OPINION: The adoption by IMSA of the GTP name for its forthcoming LMDh versus Le Mans Hypercar era in 2023 appeals to fans of nostalgia - but it undermines the commonality achieved by bringing its rulebook into line with the WEC. GTP or Hypercar, both sides should settle on a single name
