Research and development activities at McLaren Automotive have been further strengthened with the appointment of Kenny Brack as test and development driver. With the introduction of the Sports Series, the car maker has recently confirmed its three-tier product range as the brand extends its offering into new markets. The development plan to support the expansion of products is expected to account for 20% of overall turnover in 2015.
Kenny Brack, 49, joins McLaren with extensive motorsport experience. His versatile driver career spans more than three decades and includes numerous wins both in racing and rallying. Most recently, he has helped prepare and race a number of notable historic cars, claiming victories at the Goodwood Revival in 2011 and 2013 at the wheel of a Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe and Ford GT40 respectively.
Commenting on his appointment, Kenny Brack said, “I am extremely proud to join the McLaren family in a development role for the new product. Every McLaren is developed and built by a team of very passionate people, and to drive one is a true driver’s occasion. Throughout my career I’ve been very passionate about car development, so to work with McLaren feels like a great fit. I have every confidence that future McLaren models will continue to put a smile on the face on anyone who drives one.”
