Chris Bingham is planning to run a Saleen S7R in the Grand-Am Championship this year, and could enter a car at Le Mans and the Petit Le Mans. The American will have his car run by the Hybrid team in the US. "The Grand-Am Championship will be our main focus this year," said Bingham. "Saleen's plan is to have one car in the American Le Mans Series and one in the Grand-Am, which will be ours." Sponsorship for the car will come from BASF, with support from Saleen.

The manufacturer has put its road car production on hold because, it says, it has too many orders from customer racing teams and needs to supply the cars and spare parts in time for the start of the season.
