What was already rumored for a while has become reality: Glickenhaus will not return to the grid of the World Endurance Championship. Having skipped Fuji and already communicated it would skip the BAPCO 8 hours of Bahrain, means we've seen the last of it during the 6 hours of Monza, last July.
James Glickenhaus never made it a secret he was promised a level playing field with his car in the new hypercar-era, and that he would call it quits if he got the idea this wasn't the case anymore. Now, that moment has come.
Glickenhaus entered the grid in 2021 and raced in the WEC for three years. It scored two pole positions, both in 2022, at Spa and Monza and podium finishes in Sebring and Le Mans.
This year, it managed to finish ahead of both Peugeot and Porsche at the 24 hours of Le Mans.
