The McLaren racing team takes readers inside the organization that makes and drives the fastest cars on the planet. With a brand new $300 million track opening in the 2012 season in Austin, Texas, the time has never been riber to learn the Art of Racing with McLaren. In the world of Formula One, the name McLaren is synonymous with precision, professionalism, and speed, but most of what the public knows about McLaren takes place on the raceway and in the pit stops. Focusing not just on champion drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, Grand Prix action and the race-day engineers, but the vast team of experts it takes to bring this global brand to the races, this lavishly illustrated book takes readers behind the scenes at the £40M Norman Foster-designed McLaren Technology Centre to capture not just the people and the cars, but the testing and technology behind the world's most successful F1 team. Granted unprecedented access to the inner workings of McLaren on and off the race-track, photographer Darren Heath and F1 rxpert Maurice Hamilton trace the evolution of a racing car from the moment of conception on the computer screen to the final race at the end of the season. The story they tell is as colorful and exciting as a Grand Prix itself.
