One-make McLaren Trophy America series to launch in 2025

McLaren Motorsport has announced that it is launching a new single-make championship for the North American market: McLaren Trophy America, which will make its debut in 2025.

This marks an expansion of McLaren’s single-make racing presence with its Artura Trophy race car, following the maiden McLaren Trophy Europe season in 2023.

McLaren Trophy America will be run on the same principles as its European counterpart, as a series that aims to develop Pro-Am driver pairings, with an emphasis on Bronze-rated drivers.

Developed for one-make competition, the Artura Trophy shares similar DNA with the Artura road car, including its lightweight chassis and twin-turbo V6 engine. A thoroughbred racer, it features a suite of track-focused performance upgrades which McLaren says amounts to a package that can produce lap times “within just three seconds of a GT3 car.”

In addition, teams with existing 570S Trophy cars are also eligible for the series and will compete for class wins and championships. Just like Artura Trophy runners, they will receive full support from McLaren Customer Racing, with replacement parts and technical backup available at every round.
