Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus are set to not participate at the opening round of the Season 9 calendar, the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps.
The American marque will not make their WEC debut in Belgium due to a clash in schedule in their SCG 007 LMH testing program.
Glickenhaus has been adamant to not rush proceedings ahead of their debut as the car will effectively remain the same until 2025.
“Our Le Mans Hypercar program is running strong,” Jesse Glickenhaus, Managing Director of SCG, told Last Lap.
“We have completed all the FIA physical crash tests, and over 2 days just last week we ran several thousand kilometres of track time.
“We will be performing final aero homologation soon. The timing of the aero certification was pushing too close to Spa.”
The SCG 007 LMH is set to undergo a 30-hour endurance test at Motorland Aragon which has been rescheduled to early May, after the Spa race taking place on May 1.
If the assessment is successful, as was the case for previous testing on the Pipo Moteurs engine and the crash tests, then the car will be homologated for the five-year period – locking in it’s specification – thus emphasising the importance of the current testing.
Sauber are also conducting aerodynamic tests to evaluate on two arrangements, between them differed by slightly higher and lower downforce configurations.
The team assure their attendance at the second round of the WEC calendar, the 8 Hours of Portimão, to debut their Le Mans Hypercar on June 13.
