TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - Senna name returns to McLaren

The Senna name will once again be associated with McLaren through Bruno Senna, who will be driving the McLaren 12C GT3 of the British carmaker's customer team Von Ryan Racing at the 2013 Total 24 Hours of Spa later this month.

Sharing driving duties with Senna will be his manager, former Star Sports F1 commentator and current McLaren Automotive chief test driver Chris Goodwin, and team regular Rob Braff.

"I have really enjoyed the experience of racing in GTs so far this season, but this will be my first race in a McLaren," said Senna. "Obviously, it is a brand that my family has close links with, and I am really honored to have the chance to race the 12C GT3 in the 50th year of the team."

Since Senna's departure from the F1 series at the end of the 2012 season, he has been running in the FIA World Endurance Championship with Aston Martin Racing. He also raced for the same outfit at the recently concluded 24 Hours of Le Mans.

"I'm really looking forward to racing with Bruno," said Goodwin. "We have worked together for many years now, but we have never actually driven together before, so this will be a new experience for the both of us. I've watched him race at Spa many times in GP2 and Formula 1, as well as in GT cars, and know how quick he can be. It should be a fun weekend!"
