Bridgestone has aligned with DeltaWing for a one-car entry in the American Le Mans Series. A partnership announced March 11, 2013. This powerful duo will compete in the series using Potenza tires (for select races) and a superior performance car. The DeltaWing uses Le Mans performance but is significantly more efficient. This efficiency comes in the form of: lighter weight, better aerodynamics, better fuel tire, and power consumption.

DeltaWing is not the only one excited about the partnership. Bridgestone's Executive Director of Motorsports Al Speyer commented: "This relationship offers an exceptional opportunity for us to innovate toward DeltaWing's goal of high performance and efficiency. We were eager to step in when the opportunity opened up for us to support DeltaWing. We love challenges that drive us forward and separate us from the competition, and we're excited to be part of the team." Just as Bridgestone is thrilled, so is DeltaWing as said by Don Panoz, managing partner at DeltaWing: "We're thrilled to have Bridgestone on board, as 2013 promises to be an exciting year for the DeltaWing."

DeltaWing is an innovative and competitive car in racing, with some time in IndyCar, DeltaWing has thrived in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This season DeltaWing will use a 1.9 liter, twin turbo engine borrowed from Mazda's MZR engine. Next season will also reveal more surprises from DeltaWing, when the company will unveil a closed-top version of the car.
