McLaren reveals logo for 50th anniversary
21 January 2013 – McLaren will celebrate its 50th anniversary on 2 September, with a wide range of events lined up throughout the year. To mark the occasion, the Woking-based outfit has released a special logo which will be featured on team shirts in 2013.
Founded back in 1963 by Bruce McLaren, the team made its Formula 1 debut at the 1966 Monaco Grand Prix. Since then, it has gone on to win 8 Constructors' and 12 Drivers' world titles, as well as claim 155 pole positions and 182 race victories.
"McLaren’s history is long and storied, but McLaren’s legacy is harder to define – and that’s because it’s still being vividly written every day by the dedicated men and women who work at the McLaren Technology Centre," said Ron Dennis, Chairman of the McLaren Group and McLaren Automotive.
"Bruce McLaren wrote the beginning of the story, and the legend is going to continue for many years. I’m only a chapter, not the book, and I want other people to come in and write their own chapters as time goes by. This is a book that’s still being written, and that, perhaps, is the greatest legacy of McLaren."
Jenson Button and Sergio Pérez will represent McLaren during its golden year, with the duo preparing for the launch of the MP4-28 chassis on Thursday 31 Janaury.
