McLaren: No plans for sportscar team

Ron Dennis has ruled out McLaren fielding a factory team to race its new MP4-12C sportscar, which was launched today.
It is not yet clear which championships the MP4-12C would be eligible to enter, but Dennis believes there will be a desire from customer teams to run the car.
But he says McLaren will not field the car itself, at least in the near future.
"We don't have plans to race it, but we do recognise that some of our customers will want to race this car," Dennis said. "At the appropriate time we will form a department to service that - but thoughts on a factory team entering any series are premature."
The MP4-12C is being unveiled to the press at McLaren's headquarters in Woking today.
