The DeltaWing is a modern marvel, with its staggered track width and distinct appearance that makes it look like Ace and Gary's crime-fighting packagemobile. It's one of the most novel ideas in racing today, but what is it like to be onboard for a lap?

Welcome to Onboard of the Week, a feature where we spend that pesky time between race weekends looking at awesome footage from inside the car.

Racer stuck a few cameras onto the DeltaWing DWC13 during a practice session for Petit Le Mans as Gabby Chaves piloted the vaguely triangular machine around Road Atlanta.

Of particular interest is how the DeltaWing interacts with other traffic. Drivers have been accused of sticking the DeltaWing's nose in places where the whole car won't fit. Really, who can blame them for trying to get ahead however possible—even if it's just the tip?

All criticism aside, the interior and exterior shots from this onboard prove that the ultra-aerodynamic DeltaWing is a road-going rocketship from the future.

Watch as the driver hustles the wheel back and forth to keep the narrow front wheels biting in the direction he wants the car to go. Laugh all you'd like, but it is quick.
