The final round of the McLaren Trophy heads to Barcelona this weekend, and 7TSIX will be joined by former McLaren factory driver, Joe Osborne. Bringing years of experience of GT competition and the McLaren race car, Joe will co-drive the #15 McLaren 570S alongside season regular Danny Henrey, who currently leads both the 570S Trophy and the Am classes. The results achieved so far also stands 7TSIX third in the Teams’ championship table, and strong results over the two races of the weekend could secure all three titles in the inaugural season of the McLaren Trophy.
Joe arrives at the team with extensive knowledge of the McLaren model, having been part of the team who helped develop the car, as well as enjoying racing success behind the wheel. He also has experience of the championship, having secured pole position in the opening round of the Artura Trophy at Circuit Paul Ricard. The 34-year-old will race with Danny, who has campaigned the whole season solo so far. Despite not running with a professional co-driver, as most of the field has done, Danny has taken class podiums at each of the five events held so far, and also claimed impressive overall 570S Trophy victories at both Circuit Paul Ricard and Spa-Francorchamps.
Heading into the last weekend of the season, at the famous Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona, Danny holds a five-point advantage at the head of the 570S Class. His results to date also stand 7TSIX in third within the overall Teams’ standings.
