McLaren Customer Racing has updated its 570S GT4 racer for 2020. This includes the option of a new brake kit with a focus on longer endurance racing, enabling superior braking consistency and reduced degradation.

The system includes bespoke suspension uprights and a new six-piston front caliper design. Development of the kit concluded with a final test, installed on both 570S GT4 entries competing in the Gulf 12 Hour event.

At the heart of the GT4 is the brand’s lightweight carbon-fiber MonoCell II chassis, with the racer offering a rigid core and optimized occupant safety levels. Power is still generated by McLaren’s 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 M838TE powerplant and a 7-speed transmission.

The new option is homologated for racing from March 1, 2020, and is available as a factory-fit option or can be ordered as a retro-fitted item.
