McLaren GT and Video VBOX featured in PMW magazine

Mclaren-casy-study-Video-VBOX-WaterproofVideo Logging for all

Every McLaren GT Sprint track car now has a Racelogic Video VBOX data logging system fitted as standard

Last year McLaren GT launched the 12C GT Sprint, a track-only version of the 12C, to satisfy the needs of a proportion of their enthusiastic clientele who frequent track days.

What kind of customer buys a 12C GT Sprint? It is likely to be someone who already owns a standard road-going car but doesn't want to use it on the track. And increasingly, it will be somebody who, whilst they don't necessarily want to go down the path of a full-blown GT3, will be pretty serious about their circuit performance.
