Kenny Bräck blir testförare hos McLaren
Bil / McLaren

Forsknings- och utvecklingsprogrammet hos McLaren Automotive får förstärkning av ingen mindre än Kenny Bräck som får titeln Test and Development Driver. Kenny, som hunnit fylla 49 år, har mycket racing i bagaget, bland annat inom Indycar och X-Games. På bilden som är från förra året ser vi honom ratta en McLaren F1 GTR Longtail på Goodwood. I år var han med på samma event och satt då bakom ratten på en McLaren P1 GTR.

Så här säger Kenny om sitt nya uppdrag:
"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."

KENNY BRACK SIGNED AS DEVELOPMENT DRIVER WITH McLAREN AUTOMOTIVE

The relentless research and development programme at McLaren Automotive has been

further strengthened with the appointment of Kenny Brack as Test and Development

Driver. With the introduction of the Sports Series, McLaren Automotive 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 groundbreaking products is

expected to account for 20 percent of overall turnover in 2015.

Kenny Brack, 49, joins McLaren with extensive motorsport experience, and a racing

career including securing the Indy Racing League Drivers Championship in 1998. The

following year, the Swedish driver joined motor racing’s elite by adding his name to the

famous Borg Warner Trophy, claiming victory at the Indy 500. With this result, he joined

McLaren heroes including Johnny Rutherford, Mark Donohue and Emerson Fittipaldi.

His versatile driver career spans more than three decades and includes an X-Games

Rally/Racing gold medal and numerous other victories 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.

No stranger to a McLaren, Kenny Brack has taken to the track in models old and new

over the past few years. In 2014, he drove the famous Goodwood Hill at the Festival of

Speed with the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’, and joined the grid at the 73rd Goodwood

Members’ Meeting which saw 16 examples of the McLaren F1 GTR take to the track.

This summer, he joined McLaren Automotive as a guest driver at the Festival of Speed

to pilot the track-only McLaren P1™ GTR.

Kenny Brack joins the talented team of test and development drivers at McLaren

Automotive. This group of highly experienced drivers is dedicated to the on-going

development of future McLaren models within the three tier product range, and is further

strengthened with this latest addition. The next models to be launched will be the 570S

Coupé and 540C Coupé, with first deliveries before the end of the year. These two

models are most attainable McLaren models to date, and will introduce McLaren race-

derived technologies and supercar driving exhilaration to the sports car market.

Commenting on his appointment, Kenny Brack explained: ‘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.’

Mike Flewitt, McLaren Automotive Chief Executive Officer added: ‘Kenny joins McLaren

at a very exciting time, with the brand going from strength to strength. We have a

relentless programme in place for the on-going development of the future product line-

up, and Kenny’s experience and expertise will help ensure that each model is as

exciting and engaging as a McLaren should be.’
