Balfe Motorsport Squad To Race New McLaren 720S GT3 In British GT
One of McLaren's new 720S GT3 cars will be raced in the UK this year by British GT Championship squad Balfe Motorsport.
Balfe, which had already confirmed a return to the GT4 division with a 570S GT4 for Michael O'Brien and Graham Johnson, will enter the new car for team co-owner Shaun Balfe and McLaren Automotive factory driver Rob Bell.
Balfe and Bell won the 2017 International GT Open Pro-Am championship together and completed a part-season in British GT last year in the previous generation McLaren 650S GT3, which was interrupted by a big crash for Balfe at Rockingham.
Bell has been instrumental in developing the 720S GT3 alongside Joe Osborne and Ben Barnicoat, but missed out on the car's race debut at the Gulf 12 Hours in December due to the birth of his second child.
