The idea of racing with an emphasis on efficiency appeals on every level to my love of fast-yet-fuel-efficient cars.

Of all the exciting alternative fuel vehicles I cover for Gas2, none are as awesome as the Nissan DeltaWing. As a race car with half the weight, half the power, and half the fuel consumption with equivalent levels of performance, the DeltaWing is nothing short of a race car revolution. Now comes news that the DeltaWing will return for the last race of the World Endurance Championship Petit Le Mans contest.
