Now, the program returns in 2021, with Team Rocket RJN partnering with McLaren Automotive to help find talented drivers.

We are delighted that McLaren has extended its official Safety Car status into the sixth season. The manufacturer has been ever-present at the front of our grid since 2016, and when the GT model made its first appearance in the role last year, it proved perfectly suited to controlling our race car pack. We look forward to seeing it at the head of the field again throughout 2021. Lauren Granville, Intelligent Money British GT Championship Manager
