McLaren aims for Le Mans glory once more

After a 26-year hiatus, McLaren returns to the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend for another run at glory.

The French endurance classic holds a special place in McLaren's history, as it was the scene of the manufacturer’s incredible win in 1995 with its McLaren F1 GTR driven by JJ Lehto, Yannick Dalmas and Masanori Sekiya.

This time around, McLaren will be represented by two teams fielding a total of three McLaren 720S LMGT3s.

Zak Brown and Richard Dean’s United Autosports outfit has entered two cars, while Inception Racing will manage its own entry.

United has paid homage to McLaren’s Le Mans legacy by running one of its cars with #59, the very race number used by the manufacturer’s winning machine in 1995.

With two strong teams to support its heritage, McLaren's return to Le Mans promises to be a thrilling spectacle for the marque’s many devoted fans.
