The London Classic Car Show reminded me of the rich and varied automotive heritage our company has. I met several folks at the show who I have known from my Brabham Formula One days and many more from my 17 years at McLaren. In fact around half of our team are ex McLaren and many of the original McLaren F.1 and SLR teams are now part of the GMD team at Shalford.
The team behind the F.1 exhibit did such a great job of telling the background story that I began thinking that we should begin putting a heritage collection together here at GMD. So at the moment I am discussing a potential programme with the Operational Board which I hope will result in a collection of my early cars and the background story to each design and possibly a heritage website.
We have already started building one of the very early cars so watch this space for more news.
