McLaren 650S GT3

McLaren 650S GT3

It wasn’t very long ago that the McLaren 650S GT3 was unveiled. The full racing version of the 650S will be raced by customer teams in various GT racing series next year.

However, McLaren has announced that the 650S GT3 will make its racing debut before 2015 gets here. A factory backed car will be competing in the Gulf 12 Hours race this coming December 12th and 13th. The race will be held at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. This should provide a perfect test for the machine before customers start racing them.

About the race car Andrew Kirkaldy, Managing Director McLaren GT, explained:

The development program of the 650S GT3 has been extensive already, with the team testing over thousands of kilometres in various conditions. The Gulf 12 Hour will give us the opportunity to fully evaluate the 650S GT3 in a real life race environment, which presents a very different challenge. It will be the toughest test the 650S GT3 has faced so far – a real race situation with a highly competitive grid in high ambient temperatures.
