Nissan GT-R Nismo GT3 at Blancpain Endurance Series

It was the McLaren 650S GT3 on the top step of the podium in the second round of the Blancpain Endurance Series in Silverstone.

It was a convincing victory for the McLaren GT customer team Von Ryan Racing at Silverstone, with factory drivers Rob Bell, Shane van Gisbergen and Kevin Estre at the wheel. This was the first win for the 650S GT3 in the Blancpain Endurance Series in its competitive début season.

At Silverstone, the striking orange 650S GT3 wearing #58, showed good pace early in qualifying, topping the time-sheets at the end of the first session. The times continued to fall over the remaining qualifying sessions, and the trio secured a fourth-place start for the three-hour endurance race.

Based on the groundbreaking 650S Coupé, the 650S GT3 has made a strong start in its 2015 campaign, building on the third place scored by Von Ryan Racing with Bell and Estre when joined by fellow McLaren GT driver Alvaro Parente at the Gulf 12 Hour 2014. The latest model from McLaren GT has secured podium finishes in five championships at circuits across North America, Portugal, the UK and France till date.
