Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has confirmed the attendance of their 007 LMH and 004S at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this July.

The American automotive manufacturer and racing team has confirmed their attendance at the annual hill climb in West Sussex, England.

The event showcases all corners of the automotive and motorsport worlds with a blend of historic runners, present-day machines, and glimpses of the future.

Jim Glickenhaus, Founder of Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, reacted fondly of the confirmation:

“Of all the events I’ve ever attended The Festival of Speed is the greatest – I’m so happy we’ll be back this (8th-11th) July.”

SCG look to showcase their newest centre of attention, the 007 LMH, which is due to debut into the WEC as the second Le Mans Hypercar after Toyota.

He says that the target driver to be doing the 007 LMH hillclimb will be none other than the hill-climb record holder himself, and SCG Le Mans Hypercar driver, Romain Dumas.

Their 004S, the road-going variant of their 004C GT3 car, is also set to drive up the hill.

The FOS was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 implications that made hosting the event a challenge for the host and attendees.

With compliance to health and hygiene guidelines, the FOS, Revival (17th-19th September) and Members’ Meetings are all set to go ahead this year.

The 680hp, 3.5l twin-turbo V8 (Pipo Moteurs-propelled) SCG 007 LMH is currently being tested at Monza with Dumas, Pipo Derani, and Ryan Briscoe all present.

All their partners in the LMH project are also attenders: Joest Racing, Pipo Moteurs, Podium Engineering and Sauber.

The Italian venue is attributed for its long straights and presents a proving ground for the team to conduct aerodynamic tests.

Such data collected over these two days will add to last week’s 20 laps testing at Vallelunga and crucially the data from their wind tunnel tests.
