Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus debuts into the 24H Series and finishes day one of the Mugello 12H in second position. Unlike other endurance championships the race will commence with four hours of competition on Friday at 14h00 followed by eight hours on Saturday. Both Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus cars (701 and 702) started the first four hours of the race in great shape. Starting from 13th and 11th on the grid respectively, the drivers were able to pick off the competition one by one, with both cars holding top spot at points during the race. Car 702 was initially driven by Jeff Westphal who moved up the grid all the way to the top spot before switching driver duties with Andreas Simonsen, who after a number of laps also bought the car back into the pits in top spot before handing over the reins to Thomas Mutsch. He continued to race well and 702 finished the first four hours in second spot, which is where it will start the remaining eight hours of racing tomorrow. Car 701 also had a great start driven by Manuel Lauck, followed by Franck Mailleux. At just past the halfway mark he had moved up to second place before handing over driver duties to Felipe Laser. Within the last hour Felipe managed to get up to pole position but with just 40 minutes to go, there were some technical issues so the car was brought into the pits. Unfortunately it couldn’t be fixed by the time the race closed, and will start tomorrow with a 10-lap penalty. Unfortunately, on Saturday, with two hours left of racing, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has had to retire both vehicles (701 and 702) due to gearbox issues despite a strong start, particularly for car 702. After a great first four hours on Friday, 702 started on the grid in second place and within seven minutes of the start driver Thomas Mutsch took pole. Jeff Westphal then took over and again managed to maintain pace bringing 702 into the pits in first place before handing over driving duties to Andreas Simonsen. When Andreas came in the car required some work in the pits, which lost a little time so it re-joined the track in 15th position. After a few more laps with Thomas Mutsch behind the wheel an issue with the gearbox became apparent and the team decided to retire the car. On the other hand, after some great driving from Felipe Laser and Manuel Lauck, they managed to get car 701 into 47th, but the same gearbox issue as 702 meant it was brought into the pits and also had to retire early. This was the first official race of 2016 for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus and the first time the team competed in the 24 Hour Series, and at the Mugello circuit. The team were very proud of the result despite having to retire early, as this was a completely new experience for them and both cars ran well for a good proportion of the race and were incredibly competitive.
