McLaren has announced former Formula One driver Bruno Senna will be one of the mentors for their P1 GTR owners program.

Announced last October, the "dedicated track preparation program" will enable owners to perfect their driving skills in order to get the most out of the car. In order to achieve this, owners will receive extensive training including consultations at the McLaren Technology Center and lessons in McLaren racing simulators.  They will also travel to Formula 1 circuits where they will receive one-to-one coaching from professionals such as Senna.

 

In a statement, Senna said "The bespoke Driver Programme has been designed to ensure each driver is prepared, mentally and physically, to make the most of the car and the track. The stages are the same as a professional racing driver would go through for a race weekend, whether it is a GT race or in Formula 1, and the team on the ground at each event will be working closely with the drivers to hone skill levels and push them beyond what they believe is possible."
