posted in: Announcement, Homepage, LMGTE-Pro | 0

Scud­e­ria Cameron Glick­en­haus has been mak­ing a name for itself on the sports­car scene for a num­ber of years. Now, the bou­tique US car mak­ers is look­ing to step up its rac­ing oper­a­tions with a GTE homolo­ga­tion for its brand-new SCG 004S sports car.

This week saw the unveil­ing of the SCG 004S, the light­weight 650bhp, 5-litre suc­ces­sor to the SCG 003S. After a sig­nif­i­cant amount of suc­cess in the VLN, Nür­bur­gring 24 Hours and 24h Series, WEC-Mag­a­zin under­stands that the Jim Glick­en­haus-owned mar­que is aim­ing to homolo­gate the new GT car under GTE and GTLM reg­u­la­tions, poten­tial­ly open­ing up a route to com­pete at some of the most pres­ti­gious races on the plan­et – includ­ing the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Rolex 24 at Day­tona and the 12 Hours of Sebring.

SCG plans to test the road car by mid-2018 and deliv­er to cus­tomers lat­er in the year, leav­ing a poten­tial race pro­gramme pos­si­ble for the 2019 and 2019/20 sea­sons. It is believed that the US man­u­fac­tur­er is cur­rent­ly on the look­out for spon­sors and part­ners to accel­er­ate the project.

The new SCG 004S builds on the suc­cess of the SCG 003S, which made its debut at VLN1 in March 2015. The SCG 003S has com­pet­ed in 24 Hours of the Nür­bur­gring three times, most notably ear­li­er in 2017 when Traum Motor­sport secured pole in the #704 car.
