McLaren M4A

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki




An M4A at the Martini Legends event

The McLaren M4A was a car built by British Formula One team McLaren to compete in the European Formula Two Championship.

The M4A made its début in the 1967 European F2 Championship, and was powered by Ford Cosworth engines. Although the car was reasonably competitive in the series, it was not able to challenge the more capable Brabham BT23 or Lotus 48.[1] Graeme Lawrence recalled that he and Frank Gardner, who both drove the car in the 1968 season, struggled to handle the M4A and that McLaren's focus was firmly on Formula One at the time.[2]

The M4A went on to be used in several other series, including various Formula Three series,[1] Formula Libre,[3] and the Australian Formula 1 series.

Both the M4B[4] and McLaren M5A[3] would be based off the M4A.
