We didn't do any timing, I drove the car hard but some of my cornering left something to be desired...and so plenty of room for improvement....A great thing with the car is that it feels like you could do this all day long and then adjust the suspension/powertrain and pootle home in comfort with the gearbox in auto.

It's not my car, it's one of the Mclaren development cars - I think that it was fire black but it was hard to tell because it was an overcast day

Thank you.
I notied the car you were driving was left hand drive, and since the 12C I ordered is Fire Black, and I am in the USA, I wanted to make sure it was not my car being driven.
If I could drive as well I would quit my day job.
Thanks.

Bad news THAT IS YOUR car. Always test at Dunsfold so at least you know the brakes work. Being cleaned and polished with a gritty cloth as we speak:D

If anyone needs proof that the airbrake helps spread the load to all 4 rotors,then chris,s picture is the first of its kind ive seen.
Anyone else seen a picture of a road car like this (peloton25 you are needed)
Maybe an SLR or Veyron,but i cant think of anything? (about to be shot down i think)

If anyone would like better resolution photos then pm me. As said before the car didn't appear fazed by the workout and so hopefully it can be treated like this every time we attend a track day...

I have a similar shot of an SLR under heavy braking and I recall that the front rotors have a nice glow about them but I don't recall what's going on in the rear. I will find it later and share.

Looks like 6 piston front calipers, thus carbon brakes.
