A historic podium and a fourth place for Glickenhaus at Le Mans 24 Hours with two cars designed and built by Podium Advanced Technologies
Le Mans, 12 June 2022 – Glickenhaus places 3rd and 4th overall at legendary Le Mans 24 Hours with two cars designed and built by Podium Advanced Technologies, even improving the extraordinary debut at Le Mans 2021, when they arrived 4th and 5th.
At the Le Mans 24 Hours, probably the greatest motorsport event in the world, Glickenhaus 007 LMH No. 708 and 709 – designed, developed and built by Podium Advanced Technologies – have gained third and 4th place overall. A great achievement that will be forever remembered in the history of such a legendary race.
Pilots Ryan Briscoe, Richard Westbrook, and Franck Mailleux aboard the 007 LMH No. 709 have finished the race completing 375 laps out of 380 of the winner.
“Car was so fun to drive I had an absolute blast!”, driver Ryan Briscoe testifies.
Glickenhaus No. 708 driven by Olivier Pla, Romain Dumas, and Luis Felipe Derani has marked the second fastest lap and has been the protagonist of an incredible comeback when the car was forced to pit in the box at nightime to repair the back suspension damaged in a collision, moving up from 17th position to the final 4th. An exceptional teamwork that in a short space of time has been able to put the 007 back on the track.
Luca Ciancetti, Glickenhaus Racing Team Principle and Podium Advanced Technologies Head of Road cars and Motorsport Business Line: “As many of you may remember, last year we gained 4th and 5th place overall, and that was the debut in this legendary race. Now our team is even more thrilled. Being on the podium at Le Mans sounds incredible to everyone! We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to work with Jim Glickenhaus: he is always great to everyone in the team, having a strong team spirit.”
