Announced March 11, 2013 is a new partnership that will be hitting the American Le Mans Series this season. DeltaWing and Bridgestone will be coming together for a one-car entry for the series. Known for its high efficiency performance as seen in Le Mans, the efficient DeltaWing car will use, for particular races, Potenza tires. DeltaWing will use these tires at a better rate of consumption that competitors. In addition the car is in a field of its own when it comes to fuel consumption, aerodynamics and weight.

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.
