The new Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus SCG 007 Le Mans Hypercar set foot on track for the first time during a test at Vallelunga on Thursday.

Double 24 Hours of Le Mans overall winner Romain Dumas shook down the 3.5-liter, V8-powered non-hybrid LMH car during a morning run at the Italian circuit, launching the constructor’s test program for its FIA World Endurance Championship entry.

American automaker SCG is entering two cars into the WEC’s new Hypercar category where it will compete against two Toyota GR010 Hybrids and an ORECA-based Alpine A480 Gibson LMP1.

The SCG engineering team at Podium Advanced Technologies completed its first chassis on Tuesday, before sending the car out for its first track run in the hands of Dumas who is one of seven confirmed drivers on the Glickenhaus Hypercar program.

The car ran in bare carbon apart from a set of Motul stickers signifying a recently-signed partnership between SCG and the French automotive lubricants company.

The confirmed drivers of the SCG 007 LMH for its maiden season are Dumas, Ryan Briscoe, Gustavo Menezes, Olivier Pla, Pipo Derani, Richard Westbrook and Franck Mailleux.
