Glickenhaus announces Glickenhaus and Le Mans David vs. Goliath
Two Glickenhaus 007 LMP-Hypercars will race at Le Mans and the WEC in 2021
Glickenhaus first announces an update about the development of their car :
"In 2017 we stood up and said we would race the new Hypercar class. We are moving rapidly to fulfill that goal. The engineering of our chassis is complete, and we are finalizing engineering on other components."
"We have completed our first set of physical wind-tunnel testing, in one of the world’s top wind tunnels. We have already met several of our engineering targets, and are applying the lessons learned to move us towards additional targets. We will start dyno testing our Pipo engine next month, and we will be testing our 007’s before the end of this year."
The brand also said "incredibly excited to announce that we will adding a second car and racing a two-car factory team with our 007’s starting with Sebring, Spa, and then of course, the 24 Hours of Le Mans."
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest: “This exciting announcement emphasizes the allure of our new top class. Incidentally, I should underline Glickenhaus’s great achievements both in building and promoting this machine. I would also like to thank Glickenhaus and all our manufacturers for their contribution to the discipline and their faith in our plans for the future of endurance racing.”
Jim Glickenhaus, Founder of SCG said, “Ever since I listened to the 24 hours of Le Mans on my ham radio as a young boy I've dreamed of building a car to compete at Le Mans. I'm so happy that we are getting there.”
Jesse Glickenhaus, “If it can’t race the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it’s not that hyper. I would love to see other manufacturers join this incredible race. And we look forward to joining fans from around the world on this new challenge.”
