... I've been looking at it and meaning to ask this for a while. Is it some kind of reenactment of a scene from an 80's sportscar race or what?

Re-enactment?
No, no, it's a picture of toy cars!

It started in 1985 actually . . .


And now you have to ask yourself, "Is this a fantasy livery or what?"

That orange mclaren F1 was the teams winter test livery in the year they switched from Marlboro to West sponsorship.

McLaren saved the now pretty familliar black and silver look for a big media launch about a month before the 1997 season if my memory serves me right.

nice wheels BTW (we have come along way in just a couple of years, thanks Fly!)

Ah, Ken you gave the game away too fast - but the plinth doesn't help either!
Yep - the wheels are crap - a bit of judicious painting would definitely help, but not allowed to do that in case it reduces the massive future value of this 'Limited Edition'. Strange, because you'd think it would be worth even more if it looked even a little bit better. I suspect I might do it anyway, one day.
Collectors are VERY weird people!

What?

Where did fantasies come into it?

I just wonder why the car exiting stage left (album title anyone?) is all at an angle?
