The DeltaWing Racing Cars team has withdrawn from the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, after an incident during Friday afternoon’s second practice session damaged the coupe beyond the team’s ability to repair in time for Sunday’s race.
Andy Meyrick was behind the wheel of the DeltaWing coupe toward the end of the practice session, when a fuel line rupture triggered a fire that caused delamination too extensive to repair outside of the team’s shop in Braselton, Georgia.
“It’s disappointing, because we were so quick here,” said team manager Tim Keene. “But we’ve got a new chassis back at the shop, so we’ll get back on track as quickly as possible.”
Next up for the DeltaWing Racing Cars team is the Continental Tire Showcase at Road America on Sunday, August 10. For news, photos and features, follow DeltaWing Racing Cars on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and DeltaWingRacing.com.
