McLaren-650S-GT3

 

The McLaren 650S GT3 claimed class victory and fourth place overall at the Sepang 12 Hours this weekend, bringing an end to the competitive debut season of the car, and crowning what has been the most successful campaign to-date for the Woking outfit.

 

McLaren GT Factory Driver Alvaro Parente and Young Driver Andrew Watson joined customer team FFF-Racing to secure a hard-fought victory in the Pro-Am category, and narrowly missed a podium finish overall as the flag fell after 12 hours of close racing.

 

‘The result in Sepang marks the 24th win of the season, and the 650S GT3 has enjoyed a rich run of success this season with our customer teams across the world which started back in February. The first race of 2016 will see the 650S GT3 looking to extend the championship lead in the Asian Le Mans Series so the winter break will only be brief, but we will continue to push with the development programme and fight to remain at the front of the grid,’ said Andrew Kirkaldy, Managing Director, McLaren GT.

 

Teamed with Hiroshi Hamaguchi and FFF Racing team principal Andrea Caldarelli, each driver has experienced victory with the 650S GT3 during the season, but this was the first time they quartet had shared driving responsibilities with each other. With the car arriving straight from the challenging streets of Macau where it competed in the FIA GT World Cup, the team and drivers showed strong pace in the early sessions and qualifying saw Parente secure third place on the grid with the #55 650S GT3.
