Fans began to put forward various versions, to the extent that the team will perform in Le Mans, and today an official statement was made – in 2020 the team will again spend the full season in GT World Challenge Europe, but on the new machine – McLaren 720S GT3.

Jenson Button: “After the inspiring first season last year, I am glad that in 2020 the team will play on the McLaren 720S GT3. Twelve months ago, we launched this project with Bob Neville and almost climbed the podium at Spa.
