McLaren has signed Tony Walls and Objective Racing to its McLaren GT program for 2015 and beyond.
Walls only started his car racing career last year and finished 5th in the Carrera Cup Elite Championship in both his rookie year and again this year. The next step up in his motorsport career sees the move to longer races and the potential for international GT events.
Walls said “With only 15 new McLaren 650S GT3’s being built for 2015 globally, it is a privilege to be awarded one of the first new race cars to come out of the McLaren GT factory. Having spend time in Woking at the McLaren facilities over this past year as well as with McLaren GT at the race track, I have been massively impressed with McLaren’s commitment, passion and direct support of international GT racing.”
The Objective GT Racing program will again be under the management of the McElrea Group. Andy McElrea commented “we have been waiting for the right opportunity to grow our presence in AGT and to achieve this with a competitor like Tony and an incredible race car in the McLaren 650S GT3 is a dream come true for our team.”
Walls concluded “The global growth in GT racing over the past two years has been a huge attraction and Australian GT is shaping up to have its best year ever in 2015”.
The Objective McLaren will contest all rounds of the Australian GT championship in 2015.
