WEC: SCG are “on track” for scheduled preparations of 007 LMH

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has confirmed their Le Mans Hypercar project is on track, ahead of their upcoming WEC Season 9 debut.

“We’re on track to begin testing our 007 LMH on January 5, 2021 and begin racing two 007’s at Sebring, Spa and Le Mans“, they said, confirming their upcoming WEC commitments in LM-Hypercar.

SCG have hinted at positive progress with the LMH project, with dyno testing soon due for the Pipo Moteurs 3.5L twin-turbo powertrain and full-scale wind tunnel homologation testing too.

“Our LMH platform can be used by other manufacturers and we are in contact with several about that”, they said on their ideal to offer customer LMH race cars on top of a limited series of road-legal 007s.

“We believe that our LMH, which will be ready to race in 2021, will cost a similar amount as an LMDh, will have much lower running and spares costs than LMDh, and cost about the same.”

By the LMH regulations, which were approved by World Motor Sport Council, entries are able to either race bespoke LM-prototypes or have a LMH based-off a road-legal model of theirs.

SCG have long emphasised the close connection between their road-legal and race cars with intentions to deliver “one 007 Customer LMH, 30 004S/CS’s and 15 4DR Boots”, as stated in October 2020.

Earlier at the 88th Le Mans 24 Hours, ByKolles highlighted their intentions with the LMH programme as they will also have a road-car production version of the race car.

Toyota GAZOO Racing additionally presented their GR Super Sport road car (in spyder form) which completed a lap of the Circuit de la Sarthe, then carried the Grand Trophy.

The GR Super Sport will have a close-cockpit hybrid LMH variant for the race track in 2021, which will be joined by entries from Alpine (grandfathered LMP1), ByKolles and SCG, and then by Peugeot in 2022.
