Outstanding comeback of SCG 003C at the 6 hours Nürburgring ADAC Qualifying Race 24h

16 April 2018

Nürburgring, 16 April 2018 – Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus returned to the Nürburgring and took the SPX class win with their #705 SCG 003C, delivering an excellent fourth position overall, supported by Podium Advanced Technologies, official supplier of racing services.

Last weekend 91 starters lined up at the Nürburgring circuit for the 6 hours Nürburgring ADAC QUALIFYING RACE 24H, which was characterized by strong fight at the front, as anticipated by the densest starting grid line-up: five different car makes – Audi, Porsche, SCG, BMW and Mercedes-AMG – packed in the first three start lines.

The third qualifying session, the Top 30, placed #705 on the second row of the grid, in third position, while the previous two-part qualifying results guaranteed a place in the Top 30 Qualifying lot for the 24 Hours.
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus entered the #705 SCG003C in the SPX class, featuring Thomas Mutsch, Franck Mailleux, Andreas Simonsen and Jeff Westphal as the drivers.

The race went on pretty smoothly, with the SCG003C battling hard in the top 10 for most of the 6 hours, and finishing fourth overall at just 24 seconds from the winner.

Jim Glickenhaus, founder and owner of Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus commented:
“SCG is so happy to be working with Podium Advanced Technologies. Their management of our SCG003C “Glickenhaus” at the 6 Hour Qualifying Race Nurburgring last weekend was flawless. We are working with them on our future road and race projects and look forward to a fabulous race with them at the upcoming 24 Hours of Nürburgring.”

Luca Ciancetti, Head of Motorsport at Podium Advanced Technologies, official supplier of racing services to Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, said:
“It has been an incredible weekend, crowned by one of the best results ever of SCG at the ‘Ring. It has been the first time that we have been able to fight our way to the end of the race since the start with such a good result. We are very proud of being part of the SCG team, and honored by the trust that Jim keeps on placing in us. We are looking forward to the big challenge at the next 24 Hours of Nürburgring.”
