Nissan’s experimental race car just crashed again, this time while preparing for this week’s Petit Le Mans race at Road Atlanta. 

Reportedly, a Porsche GTC that was also testing made contact with the experimental racer, which ended up upside down. Gunnar Jeannette was driving the Delta Wing at the time and is unhurt.

“The Nissan Delta Wing team is working on the damage and we expect to be back on track in the morning,” the Nissan Delta Wing Twitter account said.

During testing, the Delta Wing recorded a  1:13.686 lap time, which puts it fifth position overall so far for this year’s race. The Petit Le Mans race is the Delta Wing’s chance to redeem itself after it was wiped out at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
