Glickenhaus have already said they will miss the first WEC round at Sebring (if it happens anyway), I don't think they have built the first car yet, let alone a second one!

First car is being built now, testing scheduled for February/March after homologation.

Don't see Sebring happening to be honest.
There should be a "back-up" plan for the WEC test and first race in Europe around the same dates as Sebring, although in the current conditions with new lockdowns in the UK and an extended lockdown in Germany even that could well be in jeopardy.

There is already a backup plan for a race to be held in Europe, probably April time, if Sebring doesn't happen.

My worry with Glickenhaus is that they have had plenty of time to get at least one car built and tested, let's not forget the HyperCar regs were due to start at Silverstone last September!

I just hope they aren't going to turn up for Spa and Le Mans then disappear as others have done before them.

Glickenhaus has been screwed by Aston Martin which delayed their development.   

It's due to AMR that engine regs have been changed which meant Glickenhaus' deal to use Alfa Romeo engines went bust, only for AMR cancelling their Valkyrie project months later (which wasn't really unexpected, but the damage had been done).   I guess that might have delayed the development of the car as the new engine needed to be fitted in correctly.
