DeltaWing collides into stationary car during Rolex 24

The DeltaWing, has crashed in the fourth hour in a two-car accident.

Chris Cumming was stranded in the middle of Turn 1 in the No. 8 Starworks Motorsport Oreca FLM09 for a period of time, before Andy Meyrick hit and launched the Prototype Challenge car into the air, while also sustaining nose damage to the DeltaWing coupe.

“That one particular lap, he couldn’t hear us,” DeltaWing race engineer Catherine Crawford told IMSA Radio immediately following the accident.

Meyrick got out of his car OK, while Cumming also reported to the Starworks team he was OK.

At the time of the incident and the third full course caution, the No. 55 Mazda in the hands of Jonathan Bomarito leads overall.

The No. 4 Corvette C7.R, No. 52 PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports Oreca FLM09 and No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracán GT3 lead the GTLM, PC and GTD classes.

It would be the "Jerry McGuire" moment that would change her life forever. Although she knew nothing about motorsports at that time, the chance meeting would influence her passion for all things fast, great stories and interesting people.
