The Sport Series championship will essentially build on the base of the Pure McLaren track day programme, but it will allow owners of GT4s with a racing licence to compete head to head on circuits across Europe.
A single race event took place over the weekend as part of the Pure McLaren experience at France's Paul Ricard circuit. Two 30-minute races were held under British Automobile Racing Club regulations, previewing what racing will be like next year.
The full 2018 calendar has yet to be revealed, but Silverstone and Spa-Francorchamps have been confirmed as round hosts. The Pure McLaren track day calendar also includes Monza, suggesting that it could be added to the race series.
The 570S GT4, which already competes with privateer teams in the British GT Championship, is a race-prepared variant of the Woking car maker’s Porsche 911 rival.
