Nah, Glickenhaus is loaded, these cars for him are basically vanity projects. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Managed pretty OK without Ferrari backing at the Nurburgring already. Even without congratulations by Ferrari, for that matter, where Red Bull, Caterham F1 and many others did gave their congratulations.

But these renders are just a toe in the water, sort of a feasability study and something to show to potential sponsors to get the budget together. Hope they pull it off!

He's loaded, but I don;t think he'll back the project financially, I think only Sponsorship will run the project..

He will...
Finding sponsorship to develop, build and run such a car is impossible in todays climate.

Dunlop makes great tires. At the last VLN we were 2 OA and the car that beat us was on Dunlop. At this N24 we will have 3 cars on Dunlops and we expect to be very competitive.

If we go on to LMP 1 we will be on Dunlops.

Good luck with that! Are the tires on VLC confidential? I mean, does the tires belong to the teams or the manufacturers? If they are owned by the teams it means that the tires will not feature special chemical secrets in their compounds.

Michelin have been domintating the N24 for years and you only see Dunlop, Pirelli shod cars way down the grid(I remember last year that the best Pirelli car was a Bentley and it qualified 6s behind the Bentley Michelin and race pace was 4s slower). Is there a big price difference between Dunlop and Michelin? If not, I reckon you guys would be way better off on Michelins

We tested Michelin and Dunlop back to back at Spa.
We stayed on Dunlop.

All top teams use confidential tires.

At Hockenheimring at the sport Auto Test we did pretty well on our Dunlops.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QXhuy_AarY

At our last VLN race which as I said was won by a Dunlop car and where we finished second we did an 8:01 which isn't too bad.

We also remain hopeful about the Tires Dunlop are working on for our street legal car and look forward to seeing what sort of Ring time she'll do.

We'll also unrestrict and unballast our race car at some point and have a go at Stephen's record on our Dunlops.

If any of you are at the 12 Hours of Mugello, (One tire race/ Hankook) any VLN's or the N24 please say Hello.

Guess if there's one place where you could race the car pretty much unrestricted in Germany (or whole Europe for that matter?), would be DMV GTC. See where it really takes you. And beat that old GT1 Viper and Pagani

Maybe by the time you (possibly) join LMP1 more makes than just Mic and Dunlop have joined the show again. There can never be too much tire variety in todays diminishing variety on that front.

By the way there used to be own dedicated thread for your hypothetical P1 back in the day, on top of the P4/5 thread, perhaps we should move these dedicated discussions there (or new updated thread) instead of having scattered discussion here and the LMP1-incentive thread, and VLN one, etc

@Napolis
Thanks very much for the response

I guess you guys are a top team, ie, your team also tested with confidential tires? Assuming it to be so, then I can deduce that Dunlop proved to be a better tire, correct?

Do you know the reason for most top teams(like the former dominator Marc VDS) using Michelins, then?

We are but our test was apple to apples.

Both Dunlop and Michelin make great tires. In 2015 Dunlop won P2, Michelin GTE and P1 H.

Things change and in 2016 I think Dunlop and SCG will be VERY strong at the Ring.

As my friend Mark D said: "When the flag drops the bullshit stops".

I agree.

Unrestricted no GTE car would run with us except for The Ford GTE equally unrestricted. As we have less frontal area then them we'd probably be faster.

We're making over 900KG of net downforce and have an aerodynamic ratio very close to a P2. There is no other GT car near that. Unballasted we'd weigh 1150KG.

Unrestricted/Unballasted I think we'll kiss Stephen's time.

Off for a 30 Hour Test.

You literally have GT1 car in 2016... the lost sister of MC12 Just 10 years too late!

Take some video of the unrestricted, unballasted testing, could you?

Tell everyone at the office we love your spirit!

Those gte cars are no slouch. Pretty sure they can drop weight without ballast and run 800hp without restrictors. The GT3 cars are already slowed down at VLN events vs other series' using the same car thanks to bop. But this is off topic. Would be nice to see these cars run freely without bop, though.
