Item 4.  Changes in Registrant's Certifying Accountants.

Deloitte & Touche LLP was previously the principal accountants for DATA RACE,
Inc. (the "Registrant") for the period from January 10, 2001 through October 4,
2001. Deloitte & Touche LLP had issued no reports with respect to the Registrant
during this period. On October 4, 2001, Deloitte & Touche LLP resigned.

 During the Registrant's interim quarterly periods ended December 31, 2000 and
March 31, 2001, there were no disagreements between the Registrant and Deloitte
& Touche LLP on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial
statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if
not resolved to their satisfaction would have caused them to make reference in
connection with their review to the subject matter of the disagreement.

This change in accountants was approved by the Registrant's Board of Directors.

A letter from Deloitte & Touche is attached as Exhibit 16.1

On October 12, 2001, the Company appointed and engaged Lazar Levine & Felix LLP
("Lazar") as the Company's principal independent public accountant. The Company
has not directly or indirectly during its two most recent fiscal years or during
the subsequent interim period prior to appointing Lazar consulted Lazar
regarding (a) either the application of accounting principles to a specified
transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that
might be rendered on the Company's financial statements, or (b) any matter that
was either the subject of a disagreement with the Company's prior principal
independent accountant, Deloitte & Touche LLP, or a reportable event.


     Pursuant to the  requirements  of the Securities  Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant  has duly  caused  this  report  to be  signed  on its  behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.

                                         DATA RACE, Inc.
