McLaren F1 GTR - Gulf Edition - Le Mans 1995
Having returned to endurance racing at Le Mans 1994, Gulf Executive Martin Allerton made the popular decision to take the blue and orange of Gulf Racing into GT racing for the 1995 season.
Until then, Gulf had been racing with the Kremer Porsche, that is, until Allerton met with ‘gentleman driver’ Ray Bellm who had recently persuaded McLaren to build a racing variant of the F1 Sports car. So impressed was Allerton that he signed the deal even before McLaren designer Gordon Murray had completed the designs for the new car.
With fellow ‘gentleman driver’ Thomas Bscher purchasing the first off the production line, Bellm snapped up the second and won the BPR Global GT title with Gulf Racing in 1996.

Another fun car to drive and look at. Threw on some rear silicone tires and away she went. Fun to drive. Even with the lower CG you still need to drive it. ran in both analog and digital mode on Scalextric digital plastic track. The detail is great and the lights always add a nice touch. Rating: A
