Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus will debut its upgraded Ferrari P4/5 MkIII at the first round of the VLN Series alongside its own SCG003 this weekend.
The car, numbered #703, first raced as a Hybrid in 2012 but will be running a brand new engine and electronic control module for this round. It’ll also not be running its hybrid system as the team look to the four-hour race as an extended test for the new power plant – a 4.3l V8 derived from the Ferrari equivalent.
Racing the P4/5 will be Manuel Lauck and Franck Mailleux, the latter said: “I’m really looking forward to being back on the Nordschleife, and keen to experience the modifications made to the track. It will also be very special to drive the P4/5 C Mk III, which I’m sure will be fantastic.”
Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus won’t just be racing the Ferrari at the Nurburgring, the squad’s own SCG003 – numbered #702 – will also be taking on the Eifel Mountains with Jeff Westphal, Thomas Mutsch and Andreas Simonsen behind the wheel.
The trio will be hoping to expand on the development the car went through at the 12 Hours of Mugello, for Mutsch the Nurburgring is a home race: “Nürburgring is only 70km away from my hometown, so it has always been special to me. And driving a race car like the SCG003C on Nordschleife makes it even better! I´m really looking forward to a great weekend with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus and can´t wait to drive the green hell without the speed limits again!”
The Programme Director Pablo Garella is also looking forward to continuing development of both cars: “The Mugello 12H was a big learning curve for us. The team has been working hard to ensure the cars will be reliable for the Nürburgring. This race will be a great indication for our final race of the season, the Nürburgring 24 hours in May, and we’re all looking forward to getting back on the track.”
