I still remember quite clearly when McLaren won LeMans with the F1/01R. One of those iconic images that stays in your mind, crossing the finish line, Union Jacks waving, door angled upwards showing the driver, the car utterly, utterly filthy in the best endurance racing tradition. That was 18 years ago…
This year at Goodwood, McLaren are celebrating their fiftieth anniversary by bringing along that they are claiming, quite rightly, is a ‘priceless display’ of F1’s. F1/01R is coming, together with the GTR Longtail and the one off prototype F1 LM finished in Papaya Orange.
And bringing them up to date will be the P1, making it’s public dynamic debut. Not sure it’s going to sound quite as cool as the BMW V12’s in the rear of those F1’s though.
