McLaren revealed one of its latest race cars earlier this year ahead of the Pebble Beach Concours. Now the automaker has stated that the 650S Sprint is ready to hit the track. Want to see it? You'll need to get out to Donnington Park in the UK to catch the GT Cup race.

The 650S Sprint is based on the road-going 650S, but the dial has obviously been twisted past 11 and on to Race. A series of aerodynamic enhancements should help keep the car planted to the racing surface, and the increased cooling is a welcome effect of the revised air intakes. The engine is the same as the street car, but McLaren have upgraded the calibrations for both it and the transmission.

Von Ryan Racing will handle the trackside duties as the 650S Sprint makes its competition debut. Behind the wheel will be Rob Bell, who is McLaren's own factory driver, and he'll be joined by Dale Lomas. The car is also now eligible to compete in a handful of other GT series, so you can expect to see it making the rounds all over the globe.

Since this is McLaren at the helm of the efforts, we suspect the 650S Sprint is more than ready to take on the track.
