10 December. Woking. Following on from their announcement that apart from the small business of F1, McLaren are to enter the Indianapolis 500 and the Tour de France, the team are set to contest yet another famous race in 2020.
Sources close to the Woking squad say that an entry for the 2020 Grand National has been lodged and that a horse has been bought and has already been testing various compounds of hooves.
Given his jockey-like stature, Lando Norris looks set to get the seat for the prestigeous race.
Brushing aside criticism that the team might want to concentrate on winning in F1 first, they are also said to be considering an entry to the London Marathon, the Boat Race and Woking High School’s sports day.
We asked the team for a comment but had not heard from them at the time of going to press.
