In 2017 Glickenhause stood up and said we would race the new Hypercar class.
They are moving rapidly to fulfill that goal.
The engineering of the chassis is complete, and they are finalizing engineering on other components.
They have completed our first set of physical wind-tunnel testing, in one of the world’s top wind tunnels. They have already met several of our engineering targets, and are applying the lessons learned to move them towards additional targets.
Dyno testing of the Pipo engine next month, and full testing of the 007’s will commence before the end of this year.
Glickenhause has announced that they 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.”
