LinkedIn +

McLaren’s 570S GT4, run by customer team Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse, took victory over the weekend at Snetterton, during the penultimate round of the 2016 British GT Championship. The result marks the debut victory for the track-dedicated Sports Series model which is still in its development season.

The 570S GT4 is built around the same carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis architecture as the other models in McLaren’s Sports Series, but marks the first time the technology has been made available in the GT4 category. Driver protection is further enhanced with the addition of an FIA-approved rollcage and fire extinguisher system.

The car is also set to be displayed for the first time on U.S. soil next week at McCall’s Motorworks Revival at the Monterey Jet Center, as part of the Monterey Car Week. The finalised product is eligible for all GT4 competition globally with customer teams for the 2017 season, and is priced from GB£159,900 (US$207,336).
