Interessanter Lesestoff über Jim Glickenhaus, ...
… der 2011 zum ersten Mal sein Projekt an den Ring gebracht hat.
The concept for the SCG003 conforms to an old design ethos where owners could drive their machines to the circuit, compete, and return home in the same vehicle. (..)
I wanted a more basic design; lightweight, reasonable horsepower, not a lot of electronics – a great little sports car that we can use as a racecar. (..)
SCG then recruited Paolo Catone, whose Peugeot 908 HDI FAP won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2009. (..)
The first chassis made enough early progress that in January, SCG sold its first customer 003, chassis number two, to noted businessman and Ferrari racer Christopher Ruud. Glickenhaus and his client have started preparations to campaign chassis one and two throughout Europe on a hearty Pro-Am invitational tour.
“Theoretically, the car is built to GTE-legal standards, but it is not homologated”.
Freue mich schon das neue SCG003 Auto zum ersten Mal am Ring in echt zu sehen!
