The first in my 'Last of the P1 Series', covering the last four LMP1 class
cars that raced in the American Le Mans Series is the uniquely shaped
Enjoy the pure engine sounds of this car driving at the 2013 Petit Le Mans.
Originally designed as an IndyCar, the DeltaWing made its racing debut at
the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans under the Nissan banner. For 2013 development
of the car was taken over entirely by Don Panoz and entered in the LMP1
category of the American Le Mans Series. The DeltaWing was given a brand
new Elan built Mazda engine, Bridgstone Tires and mid season the chassis
was changed from an open cockpit to a closed coupe style. The Delta Wing
will race in 2014 in the newly created TUDOR United Sports Car Championship
in the Prototype class.

Le Mans - 1972 - Jo Bonnier fatal crash
Jo Bonnier was involved in an accident on the straight between Mulsanne
Corner and Indianapolis at Le Mans in 1972 when his open-top Lola-Cosworth
T280 collided with a Ferrari Daytona driven by a Swiss amateur driver
Florian Vetsch. His car was catapulted into the trees and he was killed.
Fellow racer Vic Elford saw the Ferrari burning furiously, and pulled his
Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 over to the right side of the track and ran across the
track to the Ferrari, opening the door, attempting to get Vetsch out. But
Vetsch had already gotten out of the car and was on the side of the track
where Elford had parked his Alfa. Elford saw Vetsch and then saw the
wreckage of Bonnier's yellow Lola in the woods next to the track. According
to Elford, the last he saw of Bonnier's Lola was that it was "spinning into
the trees like a helicopter". Elford later handed off his Alfa to Helmut
Marko, but the gearbox froze solid and they dropped out of the race. Elford
later said "it was the first time in my racing career I'm glad my car

TRUTH IN 24 II - Every Second Counts
The Le Mans 24 Hours are a legend. They are mentioned in the same breath as
the Rallye Monte Carlo, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500.
Since 1923, hundreds of thousands of motorsport enthusiasts have been
flocking to La Sarthe year by year to experience the one-day race. To watch
the protagonists in their sports cars battle for each place and each meter
of tarmac with bated breath. The drivers cover 4,800 kilometers in 24 hours
- almost as many as the Formula One racers in a whole year. Every Le Mans
winner has gone down in history. The three Audi drivers Andr‚Äö
Lotterer, Beno≈ít Tr‚Äöluyer and Marcel F‚Äûssler did so in a
special way with the triumph they achieved in 2011. The film TRUTH IN 24 II
documents the tenth and arguably most emotional triumph of the brand with
the four rings at this sports car classic. After two Audi R18 TDI cars have
retired following spectacular accidents, the remaining Audi fights a
dramatic battle for overall victory with the three Peugeot 908 cars ? which
the Audi trio ultimately decides in its favor with a narrow margin of 13
seconds. The film captures the entire drama of the fourth-narrowest running
of the Le Mans 24 Hours ? with intimate insights into the team of Audi
Sport and breath-taking pictures.

► Nissan DeltaWing - Le Mans Testing
The revolutionary Nissan DeltaWing completed its first running on the
famous 8.5-mile Circuit de la Sarthe - the home of the upcoming 80th
running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Invited to compete under the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's "Garage 56"
classification that showcases new and innovative technology, the Nissan
DeltaWing completed 54 laps with drivers Michael Krumm, Satoshi Motoyama
and Marino Franchitti at the wheel.
The team enjoyed a virtual trouble-free day and completed every lap but one
on a single set of Michelin slick tires. A sole lap on wet tires during a
brief rain shower was the only time the team switched tires all day.
Motoyama completed the fastest lap of the day at 3 minutes, 47.980 seconds.
The Nissan DeltaWing technical, team led by concept originator Ben Bowlby,
believe they are comfortably within reach of their target pace of 3
minutes, 45 seconds as requested by race officials.
With Motoyama not having raced at Le Mans since 1999 and Krumm since 2005,
both drivers had to complete a mandatory 10 laps to qualify for the race.
Both easily achieved that goal, Motoyama completing 19 laps and Krumm, 24.
With Marino Franchitti handling most of the pre-event testing and
development, the Scottish racer only handled 11 laps today - the team
taking the opportunity to get his Japanese and German teammates more
accustomed with the car.
Krumm was the first man to drive the car before handing over to Motoyama
who completed the morning session. Franchitti kicked off the afternoon
running which include the sole lap on wet Michelin tires before continuing
the driver rotation to Krumm and Motoyama who closed out the day.
The unique Nissan DeltaWing features half the weight, half the horsepower and half the
aerodynamic drag of a typical prototype and is expected to enjoy
significantly lower tire and fuel consumption.
Powered by a 300 horsepower 1.6-liter Nissan
DIG-T turbocharged engine, the Nissan
DeltaWing also features specially developed Michelin tires which are four
inches wide at the front.
Group C 1100BHP Pole Position Lap 1990 Le Mans - Blundell Nissan R90CK
Blundell on his lap - "Every input was pure reflex -- things were coming at
me everywhere I looked. For about 50 percent of the lap I felt like I was
on the verge of a massive accident." -- Absolutely amazing story
Does Blundell write for any magazines? If he doesn't, he should. In EVO
Magazine issue 157 he writes about his experience at Le Mans in 1990 with
the Nissan R90CK which was a V8 and twin turbocharged and made over what 1,100bhp!
He establishes his route to Le Mans that year and gave a real sense of what
that week was like for him and the Nissan team and when everything seemed
to be going wrong.
