Comment of the day
Have you been on a tour of the McLaren Technology Centre? Batracer says it?óÔé¼Ôäós worth every penny:
Regarding the McLaren Technonlogy Centre, if you are a F1 fan it?óÔé¼Ôäós worth every penny.
Just walking down the boulevard seeing the cars that Bruce, Hulme, Senna, Prost and Mika won in made all my hairs on my whole body raise.
Touching the car Senna won his last championship for McLaren. Seeing the windtunnel, workshops, all the prices McLaren have won over the years.
It?óÔé¼Ôäós no doubt its one of the most fantastic experiences I ever had, and I can highly recommend it.
