McLaren announced today that they will be creating a P1 GTR, a badge that the company has not used since the F1 GTR. In some very related news, GoPro uploaded a video to YouTube June 11 of British racecar driver Justin Bell taking the BMW Motorsport McLaren F1 GTR out for a spin on the Mid-Ohio Sports Car course.
Bell states in the video that this is his second chance in a lifetime with the McLaren GTR, as he finished third at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1995 in an F1 GTR. The car he is driving in the video was actually used in the 1996 Le Mans 24 Hours.
Watch the video above to see what it’s like to drive a 20-year old car that stands the test of time.
