+McLaren will officially unveil the P1 GTR at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The press release doesn't say what they are doing with the hybrid system in the car although current GTE rules don't allow electric assist. If the new 2016 rules enable hybrids in GTE, we could see a P1 with a smaller battery and no plug taking on the expected +Ford Racing GT and potentially even the +Honda / +Acura NSX plus the long rumored mid-engine Corvette C8.R and of course the traditional challengers from Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, BMW and even Audi. ?
