Glickenhaus will contest the 2022 FIA World Endurance Championship, the American privateer squad has announced.
It confirmed the news with a brief social media statement on Wednesday night.
“We are pleased to announce that we will be joining the 2022 WEC season starting in Sebring,” it wrote. We look forward to many years of racing together.”
Glickenhaus made its WEC debut during the 2021 season, entering its 007 LMH Hypercars at three rounds. It made its highly anticipated debut with a single car at Portimao, before expanding to a two-car effort at Monza.
Its last appearance to date was at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where both of its cars made the finish line with an impressive, trouble-free race to finish fourth and fifth on it debut in the French classic.
The confirmation by the team is a significant boost to WEC’s car count for the second season of Le Mans Hypercar competition. Toyota is set to continue in the series with a two-car effort, with Alpine set to be back with the grandfathered ORECA-built LMP1 car.
As Peugeot is unlikely to contest the full season with its 9X8, Glickenhaus’ returning pair of 007 LMHs are a welcome addition to the top class.
The 2022 WEC campaign kicks off with the 1000 Miles of Sebring on March 18. The Florida event, held alongside IMSA’s Twelve Hours of Sebring, returns to WEC calendar after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
