McLaren F1 GTR vs. CanAm rockets
Rennen "Trans-Atlantic Prototype Challenge" im Programm vom Spa Six Hours
2011. Ralf Kelleners im McLaren F1 GTR von 1997 steht zwar auf Pole
Position muß sich aber zunächst den CanAm Raketen der frühen Siebziger
Jahre wie dem McLaren M8F geschlagen geben. Es geht doch nichts über 8,8l
Hubraum. Das Rennen gewann Kelleners nach 14Runden mit 16Sekunden Vorsprung
vor dem McLaren M8F von Peter Hoffmann, dessen schnellste Rennrunde war nur
1,3Sekunden langsamer als die des F1GTR.

are extremely difficult and much harder to drive fast compared to the NSX
LM he drove in the past.
McLaren F1 GTR VS Mclaren F1 two seater Great sound! West McLaren Adrenaline Mallorca 1999

That year we had several events for WEST the sponsor of Mclaren. In july
1999 we went to Majorca for a promotion event for West sigarettes on the
boulevard at Palma. The people there could drive in the race simulator and
the winner of the fastest lap had won a ride in the McLaren F1 GTR or in
the McLaren F1 twoseater. The GTR was driven by Chris Goodwin and the F1
was driven by Darren Turner. Later that year I had the same event in
Poland, and I was a lucky man to drive( as a passenger) with the GTR during
the warm up in the morning. It was a great experience an I hope tro give
you an impression of how great the event was. One little funny thing is: It
was the West McLaren MERCEDES Adrenaline event. but in the GTR is a BMW
