We are honourted that Compass Racing's McLaren 720S GT3 was part of the Canadian Motorsports Hall of Fame display at the Canadian International Auto Show, celebrating 50 Years of McLaren.
The display, which featured vintage automobiles charting the history of Bruce McLaren's racing success, was the cornerstone of the Hall's new relationship with the Auto Show, which kicked off this year.As one of two "modern" examples of McLaren cars — and the only 720S GT3 actively competing in North America — it was a unqiue and rare opportunity for the team and its sponsors to be in front of the large crowds the Auto Show is known for.
"This is one of the largest Auto Shows in North America (it's ranked fourth after New York, Chicago and Los Angeles), and we are truly honoured to be represnting our manufacturer partner at our 'home' show," remarked Team Principal Karl Thomson.
Indeed, Thomson and Managing Director Jill Beck were actively involved in prepping the car for the display, as the photo below shows.
