3 weeks ago McLaren F1 GTR long tail 🇬🇧
Gordon Murray : « Porsche built a racing car and forced us to do it [...] Our purebred road-going, production based cars with their long travel, high camber change suspension and limited downforce had been leapfrogged. We had to respond. »
J.J. Lehto : « [at Monza] the car was around 8 seconds per lap faster than the car I’d driven in ´96. It felt like jumping from Formula 3000 to Formula 1. The downforce was on another level, the braking was better, the car was lighter, and the engine produced more power. »
Incidentally the McLaren F1 was the only car to contest the CLK GTR dominance with race wins at Hockenheim, Silverstone, Helsinki, Spa and Mugello🏆 It wasn’t enough to claim the first FIA GT Championship though.
