Luhr/Graf were the fastest through the 2 hours and 45 minutes of the Road America race, the 7th round of the American Le Mans Series 2013 presented by Tequila Patron. The Dyson Lola of Burgess/McMurry came into 2nd, they were quite unobtrusive allong the way.
But the Delta Wing of Legge/Meyrick was the most impressive.
Delta Wing had a good strategy and lead the race for a while until the Muscle Milk HPD from Klaus Graf was catching up and overtook the Delta Wing for 1st. Legge/Meyrick showed the real pace of the car and what it’s cappable of.
And that was actually the first finish of the Delta Wing since Petit Le Mans 2012.
