Le Mans With McLaren - A Lap Of The Track

In order to celebrate 20 years since winning Le Mans with the F1 GTR McLaren did a parade lap before the start of the race with a selection of F1 GTRs, P1s and 650s (including the new Le Mans edition..roof scoop yo) being followed finally by some 12Cs. I have to say this really was one of the best things I've ever done. Sitting in a P1 behind an F1 GTR Longtail (driven by JJ Lehto) about to do a slow cruise around the Le Mans track really got the blood pumping. In the prior briefing there were a few safety tips and guidelines to keep everyone safe and all the cars in one piece. Firstly, no overtaking. The impression I had been given was that we were going to go for a very sedate drive around the track in a line. Apparently race drivers have very selective hearing because after a few slow corners past the crowds the pace started to increase at an exponential rate until i found myself doing 180mph down the Mulsanne straight behind some screaming GTRs! This I will never forget.. Below i've linked my snapchat which has a bit of video of the lap.

Recently Vmax and Autovivendi teamed up to put together an epic day at Bruntingthorpe with the aim of getting the best of the best together. Some absolutely stunning cars turned up to see who was the fastest.
