Go Motorsport Management Driver Dean Macdonald has signed with HHC Motorsport to drive one of their new McLaren 570s GT4 cars in the 2019 British GT Championship.
Mcdonald, who is no stranger to the McLaren will partner long time HHC driver Callum Pointon, who last year drove one of the teams Ginetta GT4 cars also in the British GT Championship.
The Yorkshire-based team will run a pair of McLaren 570S GT4s in the 2019 British GT Championship as a McLaren Customer Racing team. In addition, the squad’s young drivers will put themselves in the window to be picked for the end of-season shoot-out to join the 2020 McLaren Driver Development Programme, the manufacturer-supported initiative designed to give up-and-coming drivers experience on and off track to develop the next generation of McLaren factory drivers. McLaren Customer Racing’s sporting management will closely observe the HHC drivers through the season, providing advice at race events.
"I’m really happy to be joining HHC for this season. The team has a great pedigree and has been competitive in everything they have entered. I’m looking forward to be driving the McLaren 570S again. I drove the McLaren in 2017 and really enjoyed the car, and pairing up with Callum Pointon will be great as I think we will make a really strong combination. I’m really looking forward to start testing as soon as possible."
Dean’s British GT Championship campaign begins at Oulton Park, Cheshire, on April 20-22.
