|United Autosports' McLaren MP4-12C GT3 at Macau in November|
While Anglo-American team United Autosports competes in the Dunlop 24H Dubai with its two Audi R8 LMS GT3 cars this week, thousands of miles away back in the UK, the Leeds-based team will be the first to put its McLaren MP4-12C GT car through its paces at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham’s NEC from Thursday, January 12 until Sunday, January 15.
Ulsterman Tim Mullen has been given the awesome task of not only demonstrating the McLaren supercar at the UK’s largest tri-oval indoor race track in the Live Action Arena, but he will give the car its first ever pit stop and tyre change in front of a bumper audience.
The Live Action Arena is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the four-day show and is located within the biggest hall of the NEC (Hall 5). The track with a 4700-seat grandstand, allows the audience to see an array of motor racing action, from 70 different racing cars; plus record-breaking stunts and celebrity appearances.
There is only one performance per day during the exclusive trade-only days on Thursday and Friday but the show-stopping McLaren MP4-12C GT will feature on track no less than five times each day on Saturday and Sunday. Live Action starts at the following times with the fabulous United Autosports McLaren appearing approximately 40 minutes after each start time:
Thursday/ Friday, 12th/13th January 2012 – 14:00
Saturday/Sunday, 14th/15th January 2012 – 09:30; 11:00; 12:30; 14:00; 15:30
