This 840-horsepower race car wants to win Le Mans for America

Those who’ve been keeping their fingers crossed for SCG to be allowed to go beyond the Nürburgring 24 with its racing program will be happy to learn that, following the FIA’s rule clarifications and the merger of the WEC Hypercar and DPi classes, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is now committed to enter the top class of prototype racing in 2021, which includes the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

So how is 1967’s all American driving team (Foyt & Gurney) plus an American engine and chassis manufacturer, American team owner and all the rest going to be duplicated by this conglomeration of individuals and equipment? Perhaps I am just totally missing something here.

You mean like how Carroll Shelby, Phil Remington and a boatload of others built the GT40?

Yes, that is pretty much it.

Umm, the Ford GT 40 was based a British Lola chassis. Not trying to diminish the Shelby effort, but it wasn’t ALL American!
