"Given the fact the car was born here in the US, I’m very excited to see it make its second race start here at Petit Le Mans."
'born here in the US'
Well, let me just remind you, Don, of a small, inconvenient fact.
The chassis used on the Delta Wing is from an old Aston Martin LMP1. Designed and built in Banbury. England.
The engine, whilst branded as Nissan, was designed and build by the RML group. England.
The designer, Ben Bowlby, was born in England and moved to the US 9 years ago after working for Lola cars. England.
So, before you carry on exclaiming the wonders of this ‘all american’ car…just remember that.
Note: The people who made the Delta Wing, All American Racers, was founded as Anglo American Racers, using British engines on american built cars. Quite fitting, eh?
