SHEFFIELD GRAND PRIX Wednesday 17th July 2024

McLaren Automotive is a British maker of luxury high performance supercars that deliver the most thrilling driving experiences. Innovation is at the core of what we do, using pioneering technology and processes.

The McLaren Composites Technology Centre (MCTC) is located on the Advanced Manufacturing Park in the Sheffield City Region which is the ideal location for its first purpose-built facility outside of its Woking, Surrey campus.

The MCTC taps into the region’s extensive materials expertise, skills, university resources and dynamism to help us to continue to innovate quickly and to create world-leading solutions that allow us to launch the lightest supercars built that helps improve both the driving experience and increases energy efficiency.

We are proud to be in Sheffield Region which has a long association with advanced materials; first with steel and now a future to look forward to with composite materials innovation and production for McLaren Automotive.

Aligned to McLaren Automotive’s global charity partnership with children’s rights charity Plan International, all those who work at the MCTC share a passion for inspiring the next generation of engineers.

They have an extensive STEM programme reaching out across the region and understand that investing in future talent and skills development is essential for the future of the automotive and broader engineering industries.

That is why they are committed to supporting initiatives that encourage young people to pursue careers in these fields locally and are delighted to be sponsoring the youth girls and boys race at the Sheffield Grand Prix Event 2023.

Look out for McLaren in front of the Town Hall as our McLaren STEM ambassadors will be out with a McLaren 765LT supercar – which includes carbon fibre parts made here in the Sheffield area – on display to talk about careers, apprenticeships science and maths-based careers.

We wish all competitors the best of luck in the race.
