Monza, 19 July 2021 – Glickenhaus Racing for the first time with two of its Glickenhaus 007 LMH – Le Mans Hypercar
Glickenhaus Racing, running for the first time two of its Glickenhaus 007 LMH – Le Mans Hypercar, designed and built by Podium Advanced Technologies, have successfully taken part at the FIA WEC 6 Hours of Monza after the debut in Portimão last month.
37 cars have been entered, making this the second-largest WEC field outside of Le Mans 24 Hours. For the first time since February 2020, the WEC has allowed access onsite to a limited number of fans.
No. 709 Glickenhaus 007 LMH, driven by Dumas, Mailleux, Westbrook, has completed 200 laps with the second best lap time of the day at 1:37.265, nd a best speed of 214.4 km/h, crossing the flag with a prestigious final 4th place overall and third in its class.
The Glickenhaus 007 LMH no. 708, driven by Derani, Menezes, Pla, completed only 114 laps due to some mechanical problems affecting the powertrain.
Overall, the Glickenhaus 007 LMH performed on par with the other Hypercars giving the team plenty of encouragement for the rest of the season. The team is now getting ready for the 24 Hours of Le Mans that will take place on next August 21.
It has been already announced that by 2023 Glickenhaus Racing will be joined by Ferrari, Peugeot, Porsche, Audi and Acura: a compelling challenge for a boutique manufacturer such as the US team
