Scalextric McLaren F1 GTR Le Mans 1996 Twin Pack.
Race: 1996 LeMans 24 Hours Drivers: Nelson Piquet / Johnny Cecotto / Danny Sullivan Jacques Laffite / Steve Soper / Marc Duez After their victorious debut in 1995 the 1996 LeMans 24 hour race was set to be a much tougher affair for the McLaren F1 GTR.
The 1996 iteration of the then worlds fastest production car had seen a number of improvements, hoped to ensure that the gap to the new breed of GT1 and LMP1 cars would not be too much. However the new Porsche 911 GT1s proved to be dominant in qualifying and even the excellent driver line ups of the McLaren teams were not enough. The strongest of these teams was undoubtedly the Bigazzi team from Italy. With one car featuring ex F1 driver Jacques Laffite as well as Touring Car megastar Steve Soper as well as Belgian Endurance expert Marc Duez they were classified 11th after needing exhaust repairs as well as a new gearbox in the night.
The other car featuring an American flag over the rear bodywork was piloted by Danny Sullivan, Johnny Cecotto and triple F1 world Champion Nelson Piquet. This team also needed a new gearbox to complete the 24 hours, and due to a host of other issues the car finished in 8th. While 1996 did not see a repeat of 1995s success, the cars looked fantastic and the driver line up was certainly legendary.
