Pure McLaren previews Sports Series race championship with debut event at circuit Paul Ricard

During the final European date of the 2017 #puremclaren track experience programme at the #circuitpaulricard in France, #mclaren #automotive premiered the first dedicated 570S GT4 race event. The #puremclaren GT4 Club Race saw 10 examples of the track-only Sports Series model on the grid, before a full European race calendar next year.

The race events are the latest addition to the #puremclaren programme which provides drivers with comprehensive education and understanding of track and racecraft. Each driver is supported by a #mclaren technical and engineering team that runs and maintains the 570S GT4, while drivers get to work with a dedicated driver coach to ensure development and improvement throughout each session.

The inaugural #mclaren race event took place over three days around the famous French circuit, under the regulations and sanctioned by the British #racing Drivers Club (BRDC). After a series of free practice sessions on day one to get to grips with the 570S GT4, the grid of global customers took their race-craft to a new level with two qualifying sessions ahead of two closely-fought 30-minute races.

For the 2018 season, the #puremclaren GT4 race events are to form part of an exciting calendar which will visit some of Europe’s most iconic circuits, including Silverstone in the UK and the famous Spa-Francorchamps track in Belgium.
