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 .

...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.

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!)

dont forget ALL those renders have been produced by people OUTSIDE of McLaren. You can tell the Car mag one is based off of some Ascari images. Only images to trust are the actual spy shots

The chassis in those photos resembles a bit the F1 from the 90s.
I liked those cars.

HORNDAWG should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridHORNDAWG should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridHORNDAWG should be qualifying in the top 5 on the grid

Plus some other qualifiers Here Through 2.2

2.1.3 -
The "LM" GT2 Grand Touring car must meet a minimum
of the following criteria :
a/ To be regularly produced by a manufacturer
approved by ACO ;

A regular production implies a permanent
implementation of the means required to
produce a minimum of 1 car per week for the
"big manufacturers" and one car per month
to the "small manufacturers". If the
production is not respected, the ACO will
suspend the homologation of the car the year
after. The suspension of the homologation
will cease once the production delay has
been made up. It will be permitted to
compete with the car as soon as a minimum
of 100 road cars for the "big manufacturers"
and 25 road cars for the "small

manufacturers" will be produced.



L.P.
