McLaren GT confirmed today its new 650S GT3 will compete in the Gulf 12 Hours at the Yas Marina Circuit in December.

The British manufacturer will use the race in Abu Dhabi as the final test of its new GT3 model, before making it available for customers in 2015.

“The development program of the 650S GT3 has been extensive already, with the team testing over thousands of kilometres in various conditions,” said Andrew Kirkaldy, Managing Director McLaren GT

“The Gulf 12 Hour will give us the opportunity to fully evaluate the 650S GT3 in a real life race environment, which presents a very different challenge. It will be the toughest test the 650S GT3 has faced so far – a real race situation with a highly competitive grid in high ambient temperatures.”

No announcement has been made yet regarding the lineup of the car.
