Before the McLaren GTR shook the 1995 Le Mans, no other team had ever captured four of the top five places on a debut appearance.

In January of 1995, just six short months before the 63rd Annual 24h Le Mans, Gordon Murray reluctantly agreed to turn the wildly popular McLaren F1 into a proper racing car. Tasked to make this transition from "the ultimate road car” to racing car was the head of GTR Race Development Team James Robinson. Once it was all said and done, 5 teams racing 7 GTR’s were ready to be entered into Le Mans.

Of the original 7 GTRs entered at the 1995 Le Mans, two DNF, while the other five placed 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 13th. This was the most successful debut in history of Le Mans.

A tribute to the race it dominated, the "Day & Night Winner” depicts the 1995 24h Le Mans - winning GTR on a split black and white background.
