Most of the time there are only two places you’re likely to see a McLaren F1 GTR having its wheels driven off. The first is in racing footage of BPR series or FIA GT from the 1990s, the second is in a videogame. In 2014, however, there was somewhere else to see the GTR being thrashed, and that, as you might have guessed, was at Goodwood.

Little wonder McLaren hired Kenny Bräck as a test driver in 2018.
