This week's video comes hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that the all new Deltawing racer will be taking some demo laps at Sebring International Raceway on Thursday, March 15th.

One of the hottest automotive stories over the past year has been the development of the DeltaWing racecar project which will participate in the 2012 Le Mans 24-hour endurance race. Nissan announced they are partners in the project as the car was unveiled yesterday.

The fact that the Deltawing is racing at Le Mans this year wasn't planned. The car was originally developed as a next generation study for the Indy car series. In the end it wasn't chosen but the project captured the imaginations of racing legends Dan Gurney and Don Panoz, concept designer Ben Bowlby and Michelin who continued to back the project. Le Mans organizers have classified the DeltaWing in an experimental class which doesn't count for a win. But barring incident, there's no doubt the DeltaWing will get a lot of broadcast air time when the race takes place in June. Ahead of that, the car is scheduled to complete a few demonstration laps at Sebring on March 15 ahead o the 12-hours of Sebring.
