As a major part of the 2017 British GT Championship, the Silverstone 500 combines GT3 and GT4 cars for a three-hour battle. In a press release earlier this morning, McLaren told us what we already knew: The 570S is fast!. The GT4 class had 18 cars on the track, and one-third of them were the McLaren 570S GT4. Starting in 8th position, team Track Club was driven to first place by Adam Balon and Adam MacKay. Crossing the finish line 2.7 seconds in the lead, the 570S GT4 came in 1-2-3 at the podium.

In the GT3 series, teams Garage 59 and Balfe Motorsport brought their own 650S GT3 cars into the mix, with Balfe reaching as high as 4th position. Elsewhere over the weekend, the new McLaren 570S GT4 saw action in four series in three countries. The proven performance and light weight make the twin turbo 3.8 liter V8 an attractive option for race teams, and its affordable price makes it a hit on the streets. If you need more cargo room, a new McLaren 570GT offers a rear package tray with an opening rear hatch. Both are among the hottest cars on the market, so stay with us for all your McLaren news.
