On 30 August 2014, Oxford Brookes Racing were invited to display their Formula Student car, Carly, at the 2014 McLaren Employee Motorshow at the McLaren Technology Centre.
Thanks to Oxford Brookes alumni, who now work within the McLaren group, the Oxford Brookes Racing team had the opportunity to present their car amongst a display of over 200, only three of which were Formula Student Cars. The event has grown year on year, and in 2014 it was attended by over 3000 people from all companies within the McLaren group, with Carly garnering a lot of interest from the visitors.
The McLaren Employee Motorshow is an annual event which provides employees with a space to show off personal projects, which they work on in their spare time. It is also a rare chance for family members and friends to see inside McLaren’s famous Technology Centre, getting to view their most recent automotive innovations, along with their F1 cars.
The team had a thoroughly enjoyable day, and got some excellent photo opportunities.
