April 8th, 2019, McLaren unveiled it’s Dallara Indycar entry for Fernando Alonso’s second try at winning the Indianapolis 500. The historic race is one that the 2x F1 World Champion has called “one of three race events comprising the Triple Crown of motorsports.”
Fernando has already accomplished two of the three having won the 24 Hours at LeMans, and Formula One’s Monaco race. Should he win the fabled 500, he will be the only driver to have successfully won the Triple Crown of motorports.
“McLaren Returns I” was composed with the livery designed used during Ferando’s preparation/test run at Texas Motor Speedway. When McLaren’s Chevy-powered Dallara Indycar showed up for the practice sessions at Indianapolis Motor Speedway the design had been changed slightly, though the iconic papaya orange remains as the identity of the car, similar to the F1 design.
“McLaren Returns II” is on the easel now.
