Chassis: M20-2
Chassis M20-2 was allocated to Denny Hulme at the start of the 1972 season. He used it to win the opening round at Mosport before he crashed heavily at Road Atlanta. The chassis was eventually repaired and sold to the Commander Motor Homes, who fielded it together with two other McLarens in the 1973 Can-Am Challenge Cup. Powered by a twin-turbocharged 7.6 litre Chevrolet V8, it failed to impress. Late in the season Mario Andretti also drove the car but without noteworthy results. M20/2 eventually ended up in the Harrah Collection in Reno where it was restored to its early 1972 configuration. It is seen here during the 2009 Monterey Historic Races where it was displayed in the Rolex Moments in Time tent.
