Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus takes class win and finishes 8th overall at 47° ADAC TOTAL 24 hours of Nürburgring
Nürburgring, 23 June 2019 – The SCG003C, supported by SCG official supplier of racing services Podium Advanced Technologies, finishes the race as the first car overall not made by a German manufacturer after running as high as second overall.
In a field of 170 cars that was filled with models from Porsche, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and various other marques, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus stood tall as it finished in eighth place overall at the end of the 2019 24 Hours of Nürburgring.
Running the red #705 SCG003C the team set a ‘Fastest Lap’ record of eight minutes and 19.67 seconds with driver Franck Mailleux behind the wheel and even ran as high as second place overall. A race incident at 1:31 AM with driver Thomas Mutsch piloting the car required the SCG003C to return to the pit for some much-needed repairs.
After a 16-minute repair job, the SCG003C and Mutsch were back on track in 20th place. The team then slowly clawed its back into contention with drivers Felipe Laser and Andreas Simonsen, eventually finishing the race in eighth place overall, the first car in the top 10 that was not made by a German manufacturer.
As the lone SP-X-class entry, SCG also claimed the class win for finishing the race.
The SCG003C was the only American brand to finish in the top 50, and most importantly, in a field that was supported by major manufacturers, SCG was the only privateer manufacturer in the top 50.
The end of the race though didn’t mean the SCG003C would make its way onto the back of a flatbed truck to be transported elsewhere. Instead, the car was driven out of the track and onto the streets to make its way to the Red Bull Ring in Austria to join the parade lap of the upcoming Austrian Grand Prix.
