To celebrate this year’s new look, Logitech G and McLaren will host the “Celebrity Pro-Am” race on July 7. Celebrities will be in two teams to compete in Stock Car and Open Wheel races.

McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris and American driver William Byron will captain and structure their respective teams. Additional celebrities include rapper, singer, and songwriter A$AP Ferg, Arrow McLaren SP driver Felix Rosenqvist, American race car driver, and NASCAR pit reporter Parker Kligerman and Brazilian Indianapolis 500 Champion Tony Kanaan.

“McLaren Racing uses the Logitech McLaren G Challenge as a way to entertain racing fans.
