Hey guys, I have scanned all my Mclaren F1 photographs taken at the Mt. Tremblant circuit, Canada. I've kept the pics kinda low res. so it should be a lil quicker to open.

Enjoy...and more importantly, respect the worlds GREATEST automobile. Ever.

To show my grandkids that I was there! lol


Thats 24 karat gold you're lookin at!




Look at that exhaust, carbon fibre intake and the magnesium brace!!










Next up, I'll have pics of the F50 and F40.

Nope, didn't drive it, nor was given a ride int it but...I did sit in it...if that counts for anything!

The dude who owns this, along with a bunch of other exotica like the F40, F50 etc. had hired out the track there for the day to test his 355 Challenge cars as well as just have fun in this and the F50. BTW, his brother-in-law toppled a 355 Spyder that day too! He was ok, but the car...well, enuff said! Unfortunately this was about 10 mins after I left the track , so no pics!

SO Rtech, you saw a Mclaren F1 (which very few people see even once in their entire lifetime), F40 and an F50 in one day? Are you the luckiest guy on planet earth or what!

Very very nice pictures...Thanks for sharing with us

Hey rtech beautiful pictures . I esp liked the 24 karat. Very few people get to see that mind blowing machine in the flesh. In one way i say its good that you didnt click that Spider topple over. Anyways thanks for sharing the pics. Hey S350 last i heard from clarkson that the Mclaren costs 25000 pounds for a service... Buying one??

Cheers

I was wondering what would happen when the 2 greatest cars meet...I would love to know that these 2 were raced..but since red is a faster color it has to win, what do u say
