My Avatar is Jenson and myself, that is me on the left…! . I am a member of Team McLaren and was chosen to go to the McLaren Technology Centre for a tour and meet Jenson in 2010, when he was World Champion. It was an awsome experience, I actualy got to sit in the F1 trainer, a multi gym in the shape of an F1 car is the best description, Lewis had been in it the day before….It needed a little adjustment for me…!
The MTC is a totally stunning place, we stood right next to the cars in the prep bays being made ready for Spa four days later, then saw them wheeled out to the transport. I was speechles.
Jenson was a real top bloke, chatting to us, having a coffee, pics and signed stuff for us, before he had to go back to the simulator for another session at Spa.
As a real bonus, I got speaking to Neil Trundle about the MP4-1. If you do not know who he is, Google or You Tube him. All I can say is that he is the most facinating, knowledgable, enthusiastic and friendly man I have ever met in sport. Top bloke.
What a day…!
