The Man Behind McLaren’s F1 Speed Record

McLaren F1 Super Car

25 years ago McLaren set a speed record of 240.1 MPH and did it without special movable aerodynamics, huge special breaks, or specially designed tires.  Just a street ready Supercar with high speed tires.

Impressive.  Watch this just released video showing the story and inside the cockpit video of the machine and the man, Andy Wallace, as he set an unheard of speed record 25 years ago.

Wallace’s style and coolness under pressure remind be of the early test pilots such as Chuck Yeager, the first man to break the sound barrier.
