I heard that Le Mans will ban open cockpits, but I didn't catch what year. Is it for 2014 or 2013? If for 2014, then I hope Nissan brings the DeltaWing back for 1 more try. I really want to see that car cross the finish line at the end.
2014 is when the new rules take effect.

As for the DeltaWing I would guess that you will see it at Petit Le Mans this year. ALMS will let it race to try to attract people to the race since they lost the WEC.
