“The program is about enabling our drivers to get the most out of the McLaren P1 GTR. Before they get out on track, each driver will join us at the MTC and have unprecedented access to the cutting edge facilities, including the racing simulator,” said Paul Mackenzie, McLaren P1 GTR Program Director. “This will enable drivers to build up a greater understanding of the car’s capabilities and true performance, as well as learning the braking and turn-in points before they arrive at the circuit. It also allows them to analyse and discuss their performance ahead of testing themselves in the real world situation, so they are fully prepared when they take to the track.”
Additionally, McLaren shared the first images of the McLaren P1 GTR’s interior, which can be seen below. The centerpiece of the interior is the newly developed steering wheel, which gives the driver access to a number of controls. Other highlights of the interior include the six-point motorsport harnesses, HANS-approved carbon fiber seat shell, air conditioning and much more.
