Iconic F1s Coming to Goodwood

A priceless display of McLaren F1 models will be on show at the Goodwood FoS.

There’ll be plenty of spectacular exotics scaling the Goodwood Hill next month at the Festival of Speed. And having announced the P1 will make its global dynamic debut at the Festival, McLaren has confirmed a trio of iconic F1 models will also be in attendance to celebrate the brand’s 50th anniversary. Climbing the hill to Lord March’s estate will be the 1995 Le Mans-winning McLaren F1 GTR, which was retained by the British automaker after it made history and never raced again.

That was one of five F1 GTRs that crossed the finish line at Circuit de la Sarthe that year. An achievement honored by McLaren who built five special F1 LMs as well as a one-off F1 LM prototype that will take pride and place at the McLaren stand finished in the “Papaya Orange” livery of Bruce McLaren’s early F1 and Can-Am racers. Completing the lineup will be the Gulf-liveried F1 GTR “Longtail” that finished second at Le Mans in 1997, it’s name coming from the revised bodywork that created additional downforce.
