Scott McLaughlin heads YNA Autosport McLaren Pro/Am line-up
Scott McLaughlin will spearhead YNA Autosport’s Pro-Am entry in the 2018 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour.
Supported by McElrea Racing, sharing the Opti-Coat McLaren 650S GT3 with 2016 Class B winner McLaughlin will be Australian GT race winner Fraser Ross, factory McLaren GT driver Andrew Watson, and experienced Swedish racer Alexander West.The well credentialed lineup complements the previously announced all-Pro line-up of Craig Lowndes, Shane Van Gisbergen and Côme Ledogar, providing YNA Autosport an opportunity to claim both outright and class victories.
After a successful 2017 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, McLaughlin will make just his second appearance at the Bathurst 12 Hour, and his first at the wheel of a McLaren 650S GT3. “I am really excited for my first attack at the Bathurst 12 Hour in Class A machinery,” said McLaughlin. “We have a great line up to attack the Pro-Am class honours but also attack the outright order. I’m looking forward to the challenge and excited to be in a fantastic car like the McLaren with some great teammates. The 12 Hour is a perfect way to start my racing season and hopefully we can kick it off with some success!”
