24 Hours of Le Mans – Joest Racing is back, with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus

Joest Racing will be back at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 12–13 June this year, supporting the Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus Hypercar entry.

When you boast 16 overall wins, you truly belong at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With a record like that, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus can only have faith in Joest Racing’s expertise. The German team will be supplying the people, logistics and equipment for the Glickenhaus FIA WEC Hypercar category campaign, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Jim Glickenhaus, owner and manager of Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus: We, as Glickenhaus, decided to enter in FIA WEC and Le Mans 24h to prove that a niche manufacturer can deliver product to the highest technology level. It has been a huge effort to concept and design a car like our 007 LMH but, looking at the big names that will enter the Hypercar category, this is a big accomplishment for our brand. I am not a big fan of going quietly and having Joest Racing support shows how seriously we took this challenge.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will be running two cars for the full world championship. The 007 LMH will be part of the new Hypercar field, endurance racing’s new premier league. French race engine builder Pipo Moteurs designed the 3.5-litre V8 twin-turbo engine. Assembly is under way with homologation and first track tests scheduled in the coming weeks.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will be competing against Toyota Gazoo Racing, whose Hypercar is to be unveiled on 15 January. A ByKolles Racing Team entry is also in preparation. Peugeot’s return to endurance is slated for 2022.
