^^^ I am sitting on the front right wheel if you don’t know me already
On Tuesday I had the privilege of being a VIP at the Mclaren Technology centre in Woking.
The place is awesome; we arrived at 10am where we had refreshments and then headed of to the theatre for a presentation on Mclaren including all the different brands that exist at the building.
We then went on the tour, going to the wind tunnel, race and test team assembly areas, the gym (we were guests of Technogym after all) the Mclaren Boulevard (the walkway containing cars with loads of heritage, such as the car that Senna won his last race in), the Trophy corridor, aswell as the machine and design areas.
Also had a nose around the Mclaren Mercedes SLR show area, at one point there were 5 or 6 just sitting in the hall way at the end of the assembly line, which was abit surreal.
The cleanliness of the building is unbelievable; work surfaces where they strip the cars down after a GP or test session are cleaner than those in most people’s kitchens.
After the tour we went to the Mika Hakkinen dining room for our lunch, which was hhhmmmm, interesting, proper gourmet stuff.
Anyway after lunch we received our gift bags just before it was time for the journey home.
Not much more to say other than it was an amazing day and you can learn so much from their professionalism and they way they work.
