Podium Advanced Technologies has developed, engineered and built the new 007 model from Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus for racing in the FIA WEC Hypercar class.
Given the track record of successes achieved together over the last decade – with eight seasons of 24 hour racing, eight 24 Hour finishes including five First in Class, one Second in Class, and one Third in Class – it is no surprise that Glickenhaus has decided to partner with Podium Advanced Technologies in this adventure, entrusting them with the task of designing the new car.
The new Le Mans Hypercar (LMH) category provides an aerodynamics performance target common to all cars, validated by partner Sauber Aerodynamics. All the several test sessions have been executed with a 60% scale model that has allowed to achieve each of the performance targets defined at the kick-off of the 007C project.
To meet the most demanding safety requirements of the FIA Podium has developed a brand new monocoque that is going to pass trough the mandatory crash-testing. The LMH regulations concerning the power has led to the development of a special engine in partnership with Pipo Moteur (3,5 liter V8 twin-turbo).
Podium has designed and developed the electronic system of the SCG 007C, based on Bosch Motorsport Systems, with special custom solutions such as the steering wheel. Finally, the whole vehicle performance has been handled by Podium thanks to dynamic simulation software applications and the project of the suspension system.
