Brack Electrifies in Mega-Quick McLaren

24 June 2016

The new and ferociously-fast McLaren P1 LM wowed the Festival crowd earlier this afternoon as driver Kenny Black blasted the 986bhp hypercar up the Hill in 49.61-seconds. The former Indy 500 winner was travelling at a staggering 132mph as he crossed the line. Racing specialist Lanzante, which prepared the McLaren F1 which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995, is to build just six of these Hybrid machines in collaboration with the British manufacturer.

Other McLarens taking to the Hill in the Modern GT Cars class included a Lanzante-fielded F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ and the 650S GT3 which was driven by sports car star, Duncan Tappy. McLarens also featured prominently in the crowd-pleasing Can-Am category, Andrew Newall being on great form aboard Sir Anthony Bamford’s Chevrolet-powered M8F. Expect to see at least one McLaren vying for honours in Sunday’s Top 10 Shootout…
