Agree with the "off the rockers", disagree with the car choice.

I would've chosen the Ueno car except for the fact McLaren won't sell it...

Cool to see that side again, was really beneficiary in bringing our plans to visit the Petit the first time in 2000 to fruition.

I always liked the Marlboro Mclaren F1(sports car not formula one cars from 94/95/96), I think it raced in the Far eastern rounds, of the GT championship. Petty I cant find a picture of it.

It still looks like someone got a permanent marker and scribbled all over a Peugeot RCZ.

Our good friend Jag has tweeted that Auto sport is reporting McLaren to GTE officially in 2013. Anybody know anymore about this?

Yeah it's in the print edition of Autosport this morning. McLaren now talking openly about the project, saying 2013 will be a development year for the GTE before selling to customers in '14.

Most of the design work is done and the engine is in development. Doesn't seem like they will be doing a full season anywhere. Martin Whitmarsh is quoted as saying that they MIGHT go the Le Mans next year as a development project.

All in all it's good news and nice to get it finally out in the open!

Yeah that car looked great. andy_b might have penned that design as he did a number of F1 GTR liveries.

The issue of Mclaren to GTE, was rumored to be announced in the Paris Motorshow 2012 with the real photos of the P1, today we should have more news. Anyone knows at what hour is the Macca conference?

Hopefully they have reconsidered returning as a factory entry in a lower class. If the only GTE cars we see are some privateer GTE-Am cars then really it would be hard for me to care much less about their entrance into GTE.

You don't think teams that can attract pro drivers/already have them (Hexis, Gulf, United) wouldn't run in GTE-Pro?
