Only McLaren F1 in Oz... crashed

Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

AUS­TRALIA’S only McLaren F1 has skid­ded off the road into a ditch dur­ing the Bri­tish man­u­fac­turer’s in­au­gu­ral Epic New Zealand Road

Tour. Driv­ing in con­voy with 30 other McLarens be­tween Auck­land and Queen­stown, the Vic­to­rian owner lost con­trol, es­cap­ing ma­jor in­jury but sub­se­quently be­ing charged with reck­less driv­ing. Sadly, it’s not the first time this F1 has been pranged. Once the prop­erty of for­mer Coca-Cola Amatil CEO Dean Wills, the McLaren was heav­ily dam­aged by a BMW me­chanic who was driv­ing it while it was in for a ser­vice. The car will be re­turned to Wok­ing for re­pairs.
