One of these cars was built at the McLaren factory for New Zealander Graeme Lawrence who campaigned it successfully in Europe for a season and then for many years after, in New Zealand. Other notable drivers who raced McLaren M4As in New Zealand after 1967, were Jim Palmer, Ross Calgher, and Piers Courage.
