Le Mans: Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus LMP1 Hypercar announed

The American team Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus have announced their intention to enter the 2020/21 Le Mans 24 with their SCG 007 Hypercar in the new "LMP1" class.

The team intend to build 2 racing versions of the car, these will be funded by the sale of 25 road going versions, the muted price tag of the road cars will be in the $1m range.

Both race cars will be run equally as a factory effort and will be entered into the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Powered by a US built engine, this will be an all American racer, "SCG will operate at cost for this program and will fund it no matter what even if it's just one car racing against the World." said James Glickenhaus "It's been 50 years since a car built in America finished First Overall at Le Mans. We aim to change that."


Jim enjoys an all-consuming passion for cars, that has eventually led him to build machines to his own design.

Growing up near a Ferrari dealership ignited the passion that has driven him all his life, resulting in one of the most prestigious collection of racing and road cars.

His collection include the world famous Ferrari 159S Spyder Corsa, the world’s oldest Ferrari, the Daytona winning Ferrari P3/4, and the one-off Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina, which is a modern interpretation of the famous 1960s Ferrari sportcars, engineered by Paolo Garella.


He now owns and races the second example built, called Macchinadue: ‘car two’ in Italian. As part of Ferrari’s ‘Corse Clienti’ programme, Chris won the Ferrari Challenge North America title in 2011 and 2014, having claimed seven wins from 16 races during his most recent title campaign.

As owner-driver within Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, Chris is responsible for all aspects of Macchinadue, which is run as a team within a team. Development is shared, but with his own engineer and car chief, Chris is able to prepare Macchinadue exactly to his liking and pursue whichever avenues of evolution he wishes.

He has an extensive experience in both racing and road vehicles design and development, as well as managing race teams in various series.
