      1972 MCLAREN M20 CAN-AM

      After several years dominating the Can Am series with a series of Schoolbus Yellow racers, McLaren Cars stood up to the developing Porsche challenge with the brand new 1972 M20. Designers by Gordon Coppuck and Tyler Alexander departed from standard McLaren practice in the M20 by removing the radiator from the front of the car and replacing it with two side-mounted units. This allowed improved cooling, relief from cockpit heat for drivers Denis Hulme and Peter Revson and the opportunity for improved front end aerodynamics. The latter was achieved by opening the space between the front fenders and installing an adjustable wing for improved downforce.

      Unfortunately for McLaren, Porsche countered the normally-aspirated 509/750 HP M20 with the twin-turbo 917, which churned out an astounding 1,200 horses. This McLaren M20 is chassis number 01, the first of three built. Records show it was tested by Denis Hulme and Jackie Stewart, who was slated to join the team for the 1972 season. When Stewart was sidelined by ill health, Peter Revson took his place and raced the car for the entire season. Hulme won the first two races at Mosport and Road Atlanta, while Revson took M20-01 to a third at Mosport and second place at Watkins Glen. Revson finished second again in the last round at Riverside, after which McLaren Racing withdrew from the Can Am and left the field to Porsche.
