Driving the future: On board with McLaren
Lucas is delighted and proud to reveal that our corporate brand will be emblazoned on this season’s new McLaren F1 MCL34 race car.
We are currently enjoying our third term and seventh year with McLaren and now we have upped the pace. Lucas is now one of McLaren’s Official Partners that will see Lucas on the side of the latest race car for the 2019 F1 race season.
Lucas continues to work closely with McLaren at its iconic campus at Woking in Surrey where we have the opportunity to show other clients some of the work we do in one of the country’s most fantastic corporate headquarters. Now with our brand on the sides of the F1 car some 500 million race fans around the world will see us too.
Members of the Lucas management team attended a special partners’ preview of the new car which was officially unveiled to the world’s media last Thursday and where McLaren’s chief marketing officer spoke John Allert described us all as being racers, willing to push boundaries recognising that Lucas has the same mindset as McLaren.
Jonathan Neale, the McLaren Group Chief Operating Officer said: “Lucas pushes to be the best and we’re proud to be partners with you.”
Zak Brown, the Chief Executive of McLaren Racing said: “The quality of work that Lucas does is of paramount importance to us and we hold our relationship with you very closely.”
We have introduced a whole range of new technologies across our operations in recent years inspired by our McLaren partnership, helping us raise our service and performance levels to ever greater heights. This has been recognised by a number of national awards won by Lucas in the last 18 months.
Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Lucas, said: “I’m just so proud that we’re out there racing with McLaren. It will be an exciting season with two new drivers for the team. And it’s an exciting time for Lucas too with new developments on the horizon. We’re both energised to drive the future.”
