The home made DeltaWing is finished!
Well, it took 337 hours, but our shed-built tribute to the experimental racer was finally ready for Le Mans…

"Turned out that it wasn't steam; it was the old Westfield wiring harness. Somewhere along the line, the wires had chafed through and the whole thing had decided to join itself together and catch. We put it out in time but it was a close one. And it still left a problem - the wiring was behind the dashboard, which meant we had to rip it out, fix the problem and build it again. That probably set us back eight to nine hours. Still, at least it didn't happen at Le Mans itself."
