Developed in conjunction with McLaren GT - the motorsport division of McLaren Automotive - and GT racing specialists, CRS GT Limited, the 570S GT4 will now enter an intensive season-long development programme in the British GT championship.

McLaren GT and CRS GT Limited will work with recently confirmed customer team Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse, with the 570S GT4 competing in the full nine round calendar, including the famous Spa-Francorchamps. The programme will be a rigorous testing schedule in live race environments. The 570S Sprint, which will be revealed in the coming weeks, will be dedicated for private trackdays and is therefore unrestricted by racing regulations. However, 570S Sprint owners will be able to upgrade to GT4 specification.

McLaren Automotive has also confirmed the appointment of Ansar Ali to the role of Motorsport Director. The newly-created role highlights a new focus on motorsport by McLaren Automotive where Ali will be responsible for on-going strategy and management of motorsport activities.

Commenting on the latest additions to the Sports Series, Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive explained: 'As with road-going models wearing a McLaren badge, the 570S GT4 and 570S Sprint models are about being an engaging and exciting drive. The launch of the Sports Series has broadened McLaren to a new audience, introducing technologies to the sports car market and to a new group of customers. The 570S GT4 is doing the same in the motorsport world, and will bring the opportunity to own and race a McLaren - previously limited to a very small number of people - to a much wider group.

He added: 'I am extremely pleased to welcome Ansar to McLaren Automotive in such a key role. Motorsport is part of the lifeblood of McLaren, and this role will be key to our long-term plans.'

Ansar Ali, Motorsport Director, McLaren Automotive added: 'I am extremely proud and honoured to be joining McLaren Automotive at such a pivotal time. Activities on track have played such a significant part in the history of making McLaren globally recognised. The opportunity to play a major part in shaping its future motorsport strategy is extremely exciting, and the 570S GT4 and 570S Sprint models are an important initial step.'

Commenting on the programme, Andrew Kirkaldy, Managing Director, CRS GT Limited added: 'The 570S GT4 marks a key development of McLaren as a player in the motorsport world, opening the opportunity to race to a much broader skill level of driver. The 650S GT3, which raced very successfully for the first time last year, is focused on drivability and made its performance envelope easier to access and exploit. Its race results speak for themselves. The 570S GT4 model will take this to the next level providing drivers with the confidence and feedback to push and exploit the boundaries of what the car can do.'
