The McLaren company is putting their best foot forward this year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed by showing up with two P1 GTRs. McLaren never really intended to build the P! GTR but customer demand for a track focused P1 was too strong to ignore. And are we glad the company didn’t ignore its customers.

Each will be racing up the famous hill at Goodwood, campaigned by two different teams.

The two P1 GTRs representing at Goodwood comes from different places. The first one is from Lazante Ltd, and they have taken the street version of the P1 GTR and modified it. The Lazante name is closely tied to motorsport racing and the McLaren brand as they piloted a F1 GTR to victory in 1995 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The second P1 GTR is directly from McLaren Automotive. This one will be piloted by McLaren P1 GTR driver program mentor Bruno Senna.
