Details Specification

SPORTING BEARS MOTOR CLUB - MCLAREN P1SATURDAY 15TH NOVEMBER The Sporting Bears Motor Club, known for its fundraising, is offering a thrill ride in a McLaren P1 on a circuit, raising money for the Acorn Children's Hospice. Sporting Bears has become a key attraction of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show in recent years thanks to its ‘Dream Rides' - a ten-mile ride as a passenger in one if its incredible selection of cars all owned by Sporting Bears' members in exchange for a charitable donation. The McLaren P1 ride will be slightly different however, with the action being track-based rather than on the public highway, allowing the lucky passenger the opportunity to experience the full power of this phenomenal car. The track session will take place in 2015 on Silverstone's GP circuit* with FIA qualified racing driver Paul Bailey at the wheel of the supercar, provided by Horsepower Racing. The car will complete three laps of the 3.66 mile-long circuit at race speed. Passengers must be aged 16 years or older. The McLaren P1 follows in the footsteps of the iconic McLaren F1, the car that pushed boundaries further than any of its rivals. The limited production of 375 sold out within months. The car, which can be seen on static display at the Sporting Bears stand in Hall 11, has a V8, twin-turbo petrol and electric motor combo pushing out 903bhp with 772lb ft of torque being pushed through the rear wheels. It can go from 0 to 62mph in 2.8 seconds, 0.4 seconds faster than the McLaren F1. With around 75 per cent of P1 customers opting for some level of unique design from McLaren Special Operations, its no surprise that the average sale price of a P1 is above £1 million. The Sporting Bears members give their cars, time and fuel freely so that every penny raised goes to the chosen children's charities. The money raised from the McLaren P1 ride will go to the Acorns Children's Hospice. The Bears will, on average, give 1,000 dream rides over the three days raising between £35,000 and £40,000 plus gift aid. For as little as £10, you can have a ride in a great British classic. If you're looking for something 'super', expect to pay £100-£120. * subject to availability
