1923 – 2023: the 100th edition of the most iconic endurance race in the world provided plenty of excitement at Glickenhaus Racing, the team managed by Podium Advanced Technologies.
The Glickenhaus 007 LMH n. 708 and 709, the cars designed, built and managed by Podium Advanced Technologies for the team Glickenhaus Racing, battle for 24 hours on the Circuit de la Sarthe and finished the race in 6th and 7th position.
The race started with a technical problem on the 708, which then lost an opening lap and made a pit start. However, thanks to the tremendous work of the team, within a few hours the two cars started to climb up the rankings and reached the top ten. A historic race in which there was certainly no shortage of twists and turns.
“This year the race was even more challenging thanks to top manufacturers like Ferrari, Cadillac and Porsche joining the competition. - commented the Team Principal Luca Ciancetti - Our team has demonstrated an outstanding ability to handle and overcome any adversity, with an excellent strategy and the fundamental contribution of the mechanics.”
The extraordinary work of the team, which allowed both cars to finish in the top ten, was also rewarded with the prestigious 46° Prix Escra for “The best technical assistance team during the LE MANS – 24h Hours Race to the mechanics of car 708.”
The final result of the race places Glickenhaus Racing fourth in the manufacturer ranking, after Ferrari, Toyota and Cadillac, and before Peugeot and Porsche among others.
