15 days before the race debut, a successful 30-hour test for the new SCG 004C
Aragón, 2 March 2020 – In the final setup for the debut at Nürburgring, the new SCG 004C has successfully completed a 30-hour test for a simulation of the famous 24 hours race.
After the first road test two weeks ago, the new SCG 004C has moved to the circuit of Aragón, where it has successfully completed a 30-hour test valid as a simulation of the 24 hours race, with a view to racing in the Nürburgring Endurance Series on next 17 March.
Since the first stints until a proper race pace the test has been really satisfying, thanks to a growing rhythm and the absence of major issues, proving the reliability of the 004C, fully capable to compete with any other team.
The new Glickenhaus racing car, developed and built by Podium Advanced Technologies, derives from the road legal 004S model that will be presented later this year, and features a whole new carbon fiber chassis, central driving position, and a 6,2 liter V8 engine.
The new model is replacing her predecessor Glickenhaus 003C and will race the 2020 season of the Nürburgring Endurance Series, as well as the ADAC TOTAL 24H Race.
The Glickenhaus 004C engine has been started for the first time on Monday, February 17, only 4 weeks after the beginning of assembly operations, and 14 months after the kick off of the 004C and 004S concurrent development work.
