McLaren thinks about performing at WEC

As the head of McLaren Racing, Zack Brown has repeatedly talked about the need to expand the geography of performances. This year, McLaren has a team in Indycar, and after a few years the team can take part in endurance races – in the new LMDh category, which allows competing both in the WEC World Championship and under the auspices of the IMSA association in America.

Zach Brown: “We are really considering such an opportunity. For McLaren, this would be an ideal portfolio in motorsport – Formula 1, Indycar and sports car races. These are completely different competitions that complement each other perfectly.

We will move forward step by step. We were convinced that in Formula 1 our team is moving in the right direction. We entered Indycar and waited for what the rules would be in endurance racing. The decision made is quite suitable for us.

I can’t say in what year we will start performing there – in 2022 or 2023. This will happen after I see that our teams in Formula 1 and in Indycar are progressing properly. Then it will be possible to take on a new project. ”
