Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus wins its class at the Nurburgring 


Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus (SCG) has won its class at the first round of the famous VLN championship at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. With a record-breaking 194 entrants (including almost 40 GT3 cars) this was the most competitive VLN round in the history of the series.
Starting from 20th after qualifying, the sole SCG entry also finished 11th overall at the four-hour race on Saturday, having mixed it with the world’s leading sports car manufacturers from start to finish.
At the wheel of the bright yellow car 702 (the second example of the SCG003C to be built) were Thomas Mutsch, Jeff Westphal, Andreas Simonsen, and Franck Mailleux. Taking turns at the wheel in warm and dry conditions, they each managed to complete about an hour of driving in competitive conditions at the world’s most demanding race track.
The SCG003C proved to be entirely reliable from start to finish, with only a large number of yellow flags – denoting various on-track incidents – preventing the car from making further progress.
Mutsch, a renowned Nurburgring expert who has formed part of SCG’s class-winning line-up on many occasions in the past, commented: “It was a great start to the season. We could keep up with most of our competitors, although in my view some still need to be adjusted with the balance of performance, as our car is a bit too restricted compared to others. The team did a fantastic job, with no failures or even technical issues.”
Mailleux, a former Volkswagen factory driver at the Nurburgring 24 Hours, added: “The competition was at a similar level to what we’ll see at the 24-hour race so we can be proud of what we achieved, especially in terms of reliability. As usual, we found some things to do better for the next race, such as driver change strategy and yellow flag anticipation. But I’m sure we’ll be ready to achieve something very special when it comes to the 24 Hours with this truly unique privateer car and team.”
The car’s owner, Chris Ruud, concluded: “A great job from the drivers and the whole team over the weekend. To pass nine cars and finish first in class was definitely a successful start to the season.”
SCG founder Jim Glickenhaus was equally optimistic. “I’m very happy with our result in VLN1,” he added. “This makes me hopeful for VLN2, the qualification race, and the epic Nurburgring 24 Hours itself.”
The day before the VLN1 race, SCG also took part in a test with another car at the Nurburgring, which was driven by noted racer Andrea Piccini for the first time, along with regular SCG driver Felipe Laser.
Yet more valuable data was collected in preparation for SCG’s next race, the four-hour VLN2, which the team will contest with two cars on April 8 as part of the build-up to the Nurburgring 24 Hours at the end of May. Having once again proved its sporting credentials against the best-known car manufacturers in the world, SCG is aiming for another strong result next time out.

Rest In Peace HUDDY COMBS SPEAKS ON DIPSET REUNION

RIP, HUDDY!

Harlem world rapper Huddy Combs (no relation to Diddy) died yesterday in a car accident. Apparently he was driving on the George Washington Bridge with a female and his car hit a tractor trailer truck. He was dead at the scene of the accident. Diddy tweeted about it too. From what I heard, Huddy was a best friend of Cam and Mase from back in the days. He was the dude that got Cam’ron to the hospital when he got shot in 2005. He was also a rapper in Mase’s short lived group Harlem World. RIP.

”My man here saved my life,” -Cam'ron said.
