McLaren Toronto and Motorsports In Action to field two-car program in new McLaren Trophy America series

May 8th, 2024 by



TORONTO, ON, May 9, 2024 // McLaren Toronto, the first McLaren dealership in Canada and 2023 McLaren Americas Premier Club Retailer of the Year, today announced it will be partnering with McLaren customer racing team Motorsports In Action to field a two-car entry in the new 2025 McLaren Trophy, America race series.



Launching in 2025, the McLaren Trophy, America is an all-new one-make “pro-am” championship that brings together professional race car drivers and talented amateurs. Putting its focus on pure driving skill, the series features identical race cars run by independent McLaren customer teams like Motorsports in Action. The series takes place over five weekends, with two races each weekend at five of North America’s most iconic racetracks.


Motorsports In Action will prepare two Artura Trophy race cars with the same meticulous approach that has made the team the most successful McLaren GT4 program in North America since 2017. The selection process for drivers has begun and interested parties can contact team manager Carl Hermez at [email protected].


Designed exclusively for the McLaren Trophy, the all-new Artura Trophy race car features a 585-hp turbocharged V6 engine and significantly enhanced aerodynamics. It is capable of lap times within two to three seconds of GT3-class race cars like the McLaren 720S GT3 EVO. Motorsports In Action has deep experience with the Artura platform, thanks to its IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge program with the Artura GT4.


“We are excited to be partnering with Motorsports in Action for the 2025 McLaren Trophy, America,” said Chris Green, General Manager of McLaren Toronto and National Brand Manager. “I have first-hand experience with the team, having driven alongside Jesse Lazare in the 2017 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge series. The team has a deep love and understanding of McLaren, a fantastic connection with the factory, and its professionalism is second-to-none.”


The commitment to the new McLaren Trophy series further deepens McLaren Toronto’s connection to the racetrack, McLaren’s spiritual home. The dealership is an official McLaren Motorsport Retailer, and offers its customers track experiences as well as race car sales and after-sales support. It also supports the Pfaff Motorsports McLaren 720S GT3 EVO competing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
