By: Stephen Kilbey | November 29, 2018 7:30 AM The 2019 running of the Le Mans 24 Hours will not have its entry list finalized until March, the ACO has revealed.Due to the change to the FIA WEC’s calendar this year, which sees the season run from May until the Le Mans 24 Hours next year, the ACO has made a revision to the way in which the entry list will be announced. Instead of the list being released on one day, it will be revealed in two phases. On February 11 the first batch of entries will be released including 50 of the 60 cars in the field. Then month later on March 1, the final 10 entries, plus 10 reserves, will be announced.Among the 60 competitors that will start the 2019 Le Mans 24 Hours will be the full-season WEC teams, plus all the teams with automatic invites through results racing in the European Le Mans Series (4), the Michelin Le Mans Cup (1), the Asian Le Mans Series (4), the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (2), and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans earlier this year.

By: RACER Staff December 23, 2018 7:52 AM Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus has announced a strategic partnership with Girls With Drive and driver Aurora Straus (pictured above) to promote women in the automotive industry.Straus, 19, has raced in IMSA’s Continental Tire Challenge series as well as the Battery Tender Mazda MX-5 Cup. Her foundation, Girls With Drive, aims to inspire, identify, and support girls driven with interest and talent in male-dominated careers or sports. In partnership with Girls With Drive, Glickenhaus intends to hire as many qualified women as possible for its upcoming Danbury factory and Le Mans Hypercar project. The factory and team will also engage women for SCG’s customer car program in the United States, and to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA WEC in 2020-21.“We have a long history of standing up for the right thing,” said Jim Glickenhaus. “Glickenhaus and Company became the first Wall Street firm to adopt a non-discrimination policy based on sexual orientation. Now, we want to take the next leap forward.”

Glickenhaus confirms 2020/21 ‘Hypercar’ program

“I am extremely grateful to Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus for encouraging women in the racing industry the right way. There’s no shortage of female talent, but women still represent less than one percent of the motorsports industry,” said Straus. “Women in racing don’t need to be treated differently or segregated. I envision a world soon without ‘female engineers’ or ‘female drivers’ — just great engineers and great drivers. I look forward to assisting SCG with achieving this shared vision by recruiting a powerhouse team of women that will help propel SCG to the pinnacle of the racing industry.” Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus became the first team to confirm a 2020/21 FIA WEC ‘Hypercar’ program last month.
