F1 engineers join McLaren GT

British race car manufacturer McLaren GT has made three new high profile appointments.

Andrew Bailey, a former McLaren F1 engineer, is to take on the role of operations director, while former head of racing at Red Bull Racing, Ian Morgan, will join as chief engineer.

Finally, Tim White will take up the position of engine operations manager, bringing with him more than 25 years of motorsport experience from the likes of Ilmor Engineering, Mercedes Benz HPE and Red Bull Technologies.

"It is a really exciting time at McLaren GT, and I am really pleased to welcome three such high profile additions to the team," said the company's managing director Andrew Kirkaldy. "Their track record in all aspects of top level motorsport speak for themselves, and this is a real coup for them to be joining us at the end of what has been a challenging, but extremely successful debut competitive season."

The appointments have been made as McLaren GT moves to a dedicated engineering facility close to the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England. The move is aimed at further integrating McLaren GT into the McLaren Group.
