Driving a Mclaren 540c at the track!! What an experience!

Added by AutomotiveUploads
This day was my very first experience on ANY track, I am no professional driver so don’t expect too much from me. Every car I drove that day I only drove for 2 or 3 laps so I was also not familiar with the cars.

It was just amazing how easy it was to drive this car at (for a beginner) fast pace. I was realy stunned to see what Mclaren is able to create.

Driving This car is part of a track day experience held at circuit Zandvoort. I do not own any of the cars that’s why we had to drive by strict rules such as:

1. No overtaking.
2. Follow the race line of the pace car, do no create your own race line as it is too busy on track for that.
3. Keep your distance to the driver in front.
If you and your group follow these rules the pace car will increase the speed. Thankfully I was in a group with serious drivers and the pace car was driving at good speed for such a day. In fact our group was one of the fastest of that day.

Some other rules for safety were
1. The cars are limited around 200 KPH, that why the gear sometimes drop on the straight when you hit the limiter.
2. We had to drive Semi-auto in some of the cars, which explains the car taking over the gear you are in at some points.
3. You were not allowed to turn driving assists such as ABS or traction control off.

Despite the strict rules this was an amazing experience to drive these cars I would not be able to afford myself. I recommend every petrolhead to try such an experience out.
