The McLarens had an incredible lineup of drivers: future Bugatti CEO Dr. Bscher (who used to drive his private F1 to work every day at 200+ MPH), Derek Bell (5-time Le Mans winner), Andy Wallace (who set the McLaren’s 241 MPH speed record), Nelson Piquet (3-time Formula One world champion), and so on.
Unfortunately for them, there were also Porsches in attendance. Still, six of the seven Maccas finished the race, all but one of them in the top ten. Not too bad from a four-year-old road car.
