Scalextric 1/32 McLaren F1 GTR 1997 Nurburging BBA Competition C3917
Racing in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, this Mercedes AMG GT3 features one of the most striking liveries ever put onto a Scalextric model. Mimicking the heat of the sun in reference to its sponsor SunEnergy, the car seems to be a mass of heat and flame flying around the circuit. The car itself raced at the 2017 Daytona 24 Hours and has continued to be a fixture in the IMSA series throughout the year. Raced by a number of drivers including factory Mercedes man Maro Engel, the car itself sadly did not finish, but its livery certainly left a lasting impact on spectators.
The 2014 12 hours of Sebring was the 62nd running of this famous endurance classic. Triumphing this year was the 01 Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates Riley in the MKXXVI Ford Daytona Prototype - making this Ford’s first win at the 12 hours since 1969. For the 2014 race the car was piloted by Scott Marino Franchitti, American Scott Pruett and Mexican driver Memo Rojas.
