Zak Brown will don his helmet and a pair of overalls later this month at Zandvoort where the McLaren racing boss will take part in a round of the GT4 European Series.
Brown, a former racer in his own right who every year enjoys a few outings in historic events, will team up with his United Autosports partner Richard Dean onboard their outfit’s McLaren 570S for the one-off GT4 event that will take place at Zandvoort on June 18-20.
“I’m so excited to be getting back behind the wheel of a race car at Zandvoort,” said Brown who will sample well before Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo the revised track that will host in September its first F1 race since 1985.
“I have tested with the team in our McLaren a couple of times now and I’m so ready to head to Zandvoort to see what we can do,” added the 49-year-old American.
“It will be nice to return to modern day racing, having focused on my historic racing for the last few years… and I can’t wait to get back on track.”
Brown is no stranger to GT cars, having contested in 2012 several rounds of the Blancpain Endurance Series with a United McLaren MP4-12C.
McLaren Racing’s boss also won that year with Alvaro Parente the British GT finale at Donington with one of United’s McLarens.
