Driver Insight: “Road America is my favorite track in the U.S., period. It’s long, of course, but it also has everything you could want: fast corners, slow corners, long straightaways, elevation changes. The scenery is so beautiful – when you’re driving on the back stretch between the trees, it’s amazing. The track is also very technical, you have to have a good setup to do well here. You have to get the setup right to go fast, you can’t just muscle a car around and expect to go quick.” – Memo Rojas, No. 0 DeltaWing DWC13 Elan.
