McLaren Sportscars

How long before the new role for Ron Dennis sees McLaren active is sports or GT racing again?

Not long I would think . As far as I remember , Le Mans is still on his mind .

Be great to see McLaren build a LMP1 car and go for out right victory .

Nah. I reckon Ron's had enough of the FIA by now.

Time for a more peaceful life!

...so he'll go ACO racing

If they do, I just hope they don't live up to the reputation they got themselves in F1.

I think they a far more likely to go GT racing with a supported customer programme than to head for protoypes - at least in the short to medium term.

They will need to develope some sort of GT car first before going racing, times are hard and money tight, however there is no better way for any car to climb into history than racing, so lets hope a maclaren will be seen at Le mans in the near future.

From the BBC Report about him Leaving the F1 team they say

"Dennis will now concentrate solely on McLaren's new sports car project."

"Dennis will lead the group's project to develop a range of pure McLaren sports cars, with the launch date for the first model set for 2011."

So hopefully they will build a racing version.

They already have the car in development - it has been for some time.

There are always exclusives in car mags but very few ever get into production, yes I do think Maclaren are developing something but as an organisation they are very good at keeping things underwraps the car will be announced to the world to a big fanfair. I doubt it will be the one on carmagazines exclusive.

I think wee will see the first test photos of the F1/P11 car next year!.
When it's launched in 2011, it will run a year on the road, and then being developed to a FIA GT, GT1 (aco) or GT2 (aco). If that is successful, then McLaren might think on developing an Lmp1!?, but what should be remembered about this car is that it probably wont be driven by an McLaren engine!. So any racing program would have too be accepted by the engine producer! (Like BMW did a part in the Mclaren F1 program!)
