Several weeks ago, the HPI crew was invited to the McLaren Technical Centre (MTC) to help film a promotional video for the Vodafone McLaren Formula One racing team. We got to work directly with 2008 World Champion Lewis Hamilton and his race strategist, filming in-car footage and provding any assistance that was required during the day.

Check out the footage here on YouTube! Click here to watch the video!The Bullet Flux ST was used as the exclusive vehicle for the shoot because it could provide the speed, control and looks McLaren was looking for! A variety of actual Formula 1 car parts were used as obstacles to make the track, including the old style grooved tyres and wheels, axles, brake ducts, fitted race seats and more - it made for a great track and a wonderful experience, as we were surrounded by historic McLaren race and road cars, hundreds of race trophies and McLaren employees busy building next year's race car!
