For months I’ve been waiting for a proper footage of the McLaren P1 GTR, and my prayers have been finally answered. After countless videos showing the standard P1 on various tracks around the world, including Spa Francorchamps and Laguna Seca, this three-minute flick will most likely quench your thirst for GTR awesomeness. And although I wouldn’t really care which track this British monster was on, I’m proud to inform you the video above was filmed at the Spa Francorchamps. And yes, it shows the P1 GTR going past the iconic Eau Rouge and up the Radillion!

There’s no info as to what this black-painted GTR is doing on Belgium’s famous track, but judging by the fact that it has a laptop connected to it at the pits and an engineer analyzing the data, I’m tempted to believe it’s just a regular test day for McLaren. Choosing the Spa instead of the Nurburgring comes as no surprise either, as the Brits used the Belgian course to test the regular P1 (yeah, I know there’s nothing regular about that supercar) either. Hit play to watch the GTR in action and stay tuned because there’s probably more where this came from.

Oh, and in case you missed it, McLaren is reportedly working on a road-legal version of the P1 GTR. We created a rendering of it and also named it the P1 LM, in a nod to the exclusive F1 LM of the 1990s. Make sure you check it out here.
