McLaren, it seems, realized they have been a bit cheeky with the pricing of the McLaren P1 GTR track car and are now adding perks to the program to sort of justify that 2 million quid price tag. They have now added Bruno Senna to the team of mentors that will coach GTR owners on their track days.

So if you get a McLaren P1 GTR not only do you receive a rare and super exotic speed machine, you also get the nephew of the world’s greatest Formula 1 driver of all time, himself an ex-F1 driver, to teach you how to driver it. We have to say, this does sweeten the deal big time. Unless Ferrari can get Kimi Raikkonen to coach the FXX K owners, they are in trouble. Actually, come to think of it, Kimi would be a terrible teacher. The man is very economic with words.

At any rate, McLaren P1 GTR customer racing cars are now being built at Woking, each car requiring sessions with the buyer for race seat fitting, a Human Performance Centre assessment, and final discussions around design and livery. Nine track day events have already bee confirmed, including Circuit de Catalunya (Spain), Sepang International Circuit (Malaysia), Circuit of the Americas (North America), Silverstone (UK), Autodromo Nazionale Monza (Italy), Red Bull Ring (Austria), Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium), Bahrain International Circuit (Bahrain) and Yas Marina (Abu Dhabi).

Commenting on the new role, and the Driver Programme, Senna explained: ‘The McLaren P1™ GTR is a phenomenal machine, and is designed for one purpose – to be the ultimate drivers’ car around any given track. With more power and torque, optimised aerodynamics and increased grip over the already very impressive McLaren P1™, the levels of performance are at the next level. Significant focus has been put on ensuring drivers can access and exploit the extra performance.
