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.
