McLaren F1 star and rally legend test Bathurst winner
McLaren Formula 1 driver Carlos Sainz and his two-time World Rally Championship winning father Carlos Sainz Sr have cut laps in a Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 winning Supercar.
The duo jumped behind the wheel of the 2011 Great Race winner during a special track day at the Navarra circuit in Spain on Thursday.
Sainz and his legendary father both enjoyed laps in the former Garth Tander/Nick Percat Walkinshaw Holden VE Commodore that is owned by McLaren boss and Walkinshaw Andretti United co-owner Zak Brown.
The car is one of many special vehicles in a collection owned by Brown, who acquired the Holden prior to buying a stake in the Walkinshaw team.
Sainz becomes the first F1 driver to pilot the car after former McLaren star and two-time F1 world champion Fernando Alonso came close to driving the car at Aragon before it unfortunately ran out of fuel.
