McLaren GT strengthens driver line-up with Shane Van Gisbergen

The McLaren GT factory driver line up has been further strengthened with the addition of Shane Van Gisbergen for the 2015 season. The 25-year-old New Zealander joins Rob Bell, Kevin Estre, Alvaro Parente and Bruno Senna at the Woking-based manufacturer.

"It is
great to have Shane on board for the 2015 season. He showed some real talent when he raced the 12C GT3 in the Australian GT championship last year, and was the quickest man on track at Bathurst last year when I raced alongside him, and we narrowly missed out on a podium in one of the closest finishes in the race's history. He has shown himself to be a great talent in Australia, and we are confident that he can recreate that success in Europe," said Andrew Kirkaldy, Managing Director, McLaren GT.

The schedule for Van Gisbergen's race plans with McLaren GT will be announced shortly.
