The McLaren Automotive Driver Development Programme will once again see four of the most exciting youngsters in motorsport fighting for top honours at the wheel of a McLaren 570S GT4.

The drivers were assessed across a number of different attributes both on and off-track at the U.K.'s Snetterton circuit
Having been shortlisted after an impressive 2019 season, Katie Milner, Michael Benyahia, Harry Hayek and Alain Valente shone during the assessment programme to secure one of the coveted race seats for the 2020 season. As in 2018 and 2019, the programme will be run by Customer Racing team Tolman Motorsport with two cars running in the British GT Championship.

The final four drivers were selected from a shortlisted group of 18 young and talented, up-and-coming drivers during an intensive two-day process.

The names were from a diverse range of motorsport backgrounds who have each individually impressed in their respective 2019 campaigns across the U.K., Europe, North America and Australia.

The programme was held at the U.K.'s Snetterton circuit, and saw the drivers assessed across a number of different attributes on and off-track. Each participant arrived at the circuit with the programme set up to simulate a race weekend, working with the McLaren Customer Racing engineers on set up before embarking on qualifying and race simulations.
