McLaren GT is a racing car manufacturer that combines the expertise of McLaren Racing, CRC Racing and McLaren Automotive to launch a car racing McLaren MP4-12C GT3 development program planned for 2011.
2011 McLaren MP4-12C GT3 will be the McLaren’s first car created for the FIA ??GT racing series since the McLaren F1 GTR finished manufactured in 1997. The GT3 12C based on the car McLaren MP4-12C new sports that have high performance and testing with extensive experience in Formula 1 and GT racing come together to make the adaptation process-based carbon 12C chassis for race car specifications.
“We have worked with CRS Racing to ensure the 12C’s design and development programme is as close as possible to one McLaren Racing would employ in developing a Formula 1 car. The team at CRS is well qualified to shape decisions in this area as they have an outstanding record in racing GT3 cars, and understand what is required to be successful in that level of competitive motorsport.”
“The 12C GT3 will be supplied with the 12C’s carbon MonoCell and the same steering wheel design employed by Lewis Hamilton in his MP4-24 Formula 1 car. Plus, we are working closely with Formula 1 suppliers past and present: Akebono, Mobil 1, McLaren Electronic Systems, Ricardo and Michelin for example. This blend of road car and Formula 1 technology and experience will be a great advantage to anyone racing a 12C GT3 in 2012.”
