Previous experience has told me that the McLaren 720S is a fabulous machine, but taking it for some laps on track helped me find a whole new fondness for it! Day two of my adventure to New Zealand has me joining up with McLaren Auckland at Hampton Downs for a track drive with both the 570S Spider and 720S in Bruce McLaren's homeland. Do you think I should be adding one to the collection though?
Heading over to the circuit in the 570S Spider that McLaren Auckland have very kind leaned me to drive for a few days, we then join up with approximately 30 other participants and their cars at one of New Zealand's major race tracks; Hampdon Downs. With the day featuring numerous aspects, let's focus on the track laps with both cars as well as exploring the different cars present at the event.
As well as the road models on show, we can also see one of the four 570 GT4 cars that are in New Zealand as well as the dealership's own 1973 M23A Formula 1 cars as driven by Denny Hulme.
A special thanks goes to the Giltrap Group and McLaren Auckland for the opportunity to join them for the day, as well as the other guests taking part for their hospitality and kindness.
Thanks for watching, Tim
