I agree with most of what you said, however it's not like Porsche has learnt something from McLaren here.

Porsche has had junior programmes for ages with their various Carrera Cups and the Porsche Supercup.
It's not uncommon to see the better ones get a Porsche junior or factory contract, or be picked up by a rival manufacturer.

For the debut of their new 720S GT3 (in Australian GT), a new customer team has been setup with the name of 59Racing.

Like Garage59, they will run with the number 59 which - like the team name - is a reference to the race nummer of the 1995 Le Mans winner.

Luckily, that is not confusing at all :/

Perhaps at an easy target, but the new Mclaren has won a race, at its second ever race meeting, after almost winning the 12 hr at Yas Marina.

There's no McLarens in the 2019 Blancpain GT Europe.

Mclaren has sold 12 GT3's already.

I can account for 9, so we MAY see another programme somewhere. IGTC? VLN? GT Masters?

59 Racing - 1x
ABSSA Motorsport - 1x
Team Goh - 2x
Compass Racing - 1x
Teo Martin Motorsport - 3x
Balfe Motorsport - 1x

It might just be me but, I personally find the 720 incredibly ugly. It's not a patch on the 650 and just looks to modern. A bit pagani zonda ish but worse.

Teo Martin Motorsport bought two GT3 and one GT4. If Team Goh bought two, they just got one.

McLaren are entered for the full IGTC so we’ll have to see at least one 720 at Spa 24. Maybe entered by the factory themselves

incorrect on both counts.

Teo have purchased three cars, and have announced three entries

Rueda / Savaria
Hahn / Khodair
Chaves / TBC

They also have 2 570s GT4s, not 1

And Team Goh, well just take a look anywhere on the web today, theres pics of the team with BOTH 720s GT3's in livery, on track together....

I didnt think Mclaren were down for full IGTC... just based on the announcements prior to Bathurst about manufacturer counts

I may be wrong though

and im sure youre right on a car or two in PRO for Spa at the very least

Hahn / Khodair 's car belongs to the drivers or to the team?

The Suzuka 10 Hours entry list has three McLaren 720S GT3 in the Pro Class.


One entry features Mika Häkkinen, Katsuaki Kubota and Hiroaki Ishiura.
