Even the text on the box is cool:



It still puzzles me why McLaren felt the need to have these pulled from the shelves.

Thankyou Erik, my pleasure .

I find it rather cool, to own something that McLaren had pulled from the shelves. Duke Marketing once told me, that about eighty or so copies were never retreved, so it makes this piece of memorabilia extremely rare and valuable. This also applies to the Cotton GTR book.

There is a thread about this video somewhere?

Well....I quess my dream is unpossible.......
Sami, your comments inspired me to search through lots of old VHS tapes which have been hiding in the back of a cupboard for far too long

So I have spent most of the weekend viewing with great pleasure all the Eurosport coverage of most of the BPR 95, 96 races and 96 LeMans plus some 97 clips. Some really excellent and rare footage of all the GTR,s in action. Which brought back some fond memories of actually being at some of those races at the time.

All this content needs converting to DVD, this is going to take some time, so I will probably be busy over the winter break

Anyone have a clue what this is?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/613...3526930_snp_dp

There's a little bubble in the image that says "High quality content by wikipedia articles". Sounds like a sham to me...

Smells a bit iffy to me - It's not the first time people have used Mclaren as part of their descriptive name for something just to bring traffic to their item / site

Re: Show us your F1 Memorabilia / F1 related items you've bought

Added another print to my collection. I am not sure why I hesitated to purchase it for so long, as it does depict my favorite GTR livery. This evening when I unrolled it from its mailing tube it definitely impressed me. It's 13"x19", so not the largest, but the detail is great and the colors are very vibrant. It's printed on heavy stock and will be perfect once I get it behind some glass.


Image is clickable

Seems it must be Spa, old "Bus Stop shikane" which isn't exist anymore.
Very good looking print!

Good eye Sami - I was thinking that was the location too, which is great because Spa has been my favorite race track for quite a long time.

Re: Show us your F1 Memorabilia / F1 related items you've bought

Remembered couple of days ago, that I have bought about 10? years ago two Sports Car books. Both have been writed by same person, but second one is lagrer version including the classic sports cars also.
The stories are quite as same both, but the stories are quite detailed, not bad ones! XP3 has been mentioned and quite much compare GTR, LM and F1 together.

One of the biggest reason to buy these books have been the cover; McLaren F1 LM.

Here is some images:

Michael Bowler : The Fastest Cars from around the world.
1995 first year of publishised.




Image text of this #01R image:
"This Mclaren F1 GTR is put throught its paces at Goodwood"


Second book which I have bought couple of years later:
Michael Bowler - Jonathan Wood : Dream Cars Classic Cars Fast Cars








Have anyone else these?

Yep, it's allmoust 99,9% or 100% sure, it's suppouse to be Spa, the last shikane before finnish straight. Atleast F1 races; "Braking about 300kmh to 70kmh"

It's also one of my favorits, like Suzuka and Monza.

OK!
Nice to hear it wasn't totally old thing!
I bought these here at Finland. I don't know how often seen these are?

Anyway, there is similar image of Lamborghini Diablo SE30 at Goodwood, same background than #01R image; but different car.
