Also enjoyed at the end 'It really is that good. Ferrari, over to you.'And one by one, they all come around.
There is nothing left to say the truth comes out and McLaren rules and always will!!!And one by one, they all come around.
Erik,Tacking onto this one...
McLaren held an event for the US press this week at California Speedway. Chris Goodwin and Frank Stephenson were both in attendance so there should be more praise coming from our side of the pond soon.
yes,thats very impressive with the extra weight of the passenger too!Im sure the naysayers will point out its not from a standing start,but then they would be clutching at straws as im sure he could drop that time by several seconds if he was on his ownMake sure you watch the vid, too. So my man Goodwin can rattle off 1:17 while talking to a passenger. That ought to shut up the TG record lap naysayers.
It would sure be nice if they thought that highly of me and I appreciate your kind words. I would have loved to attend but even if they had offered I am not sure I could have made it this week as I still have a real job. If I had a job with McLaren then scheduling these things would be much easier.Erik,
I'm disappointed in McLaren for not inviting you to the event. They need to recognize your role as their Top Ambassador in the electronic world!
Absolutely stunning images. McLaren, give Morgan a retainer contract for all future launches and stop releasing the crappy airbrushed images like you did for the 12C. You'll never have styling questioned again.My friend Morgan Segal was brought in for this event as one of the official photographers and has shared a small sample of images in his online Portfolio. McLaren will eventually be releasing more through their Media channels I am sure, but for now enjoy the sneak-peek by clicking the image below.
His level of 'photography' makes me wonder why I even leave the house with my own camera.
Look forward to it, although presumably that means we may also see another round of comparisons to 458 Challenge Press car, v3.0.McLaren held an event for the US press this week at California Speedway.

9 sec difference between a professional and a handy journo!!!? That's pretty shocking. Typically, when you run with professionals (at say Porsche or Ferrari or Skip Barber schools) the difference between them and handy amateurs is a couple sec at most. The true art of driving is the last tenths and maybe a sec or two. 9 sec, though? I can't believe it. Something is off.Well done article and it seems he captured the pure intent of the 12C. Funny that he was the fastest jurno at the event and yet still a full 11% slower than a proper time. 9 seconds is an eternity.
Those pictures were fantastic and it is surreal to see the 12C at Fontana. A place I have done hours of racing. ....now where is my car???
