Jay Leno, star of “The Tonight Show” and legendary car and bike aficionado made a special visit to Circuit of The Americas one month ahead of the United States Grand Prix which will be held at the venue.

Leno, a known automotive enthusiast and owner of McLaren sports cars, tested his driving skills behind the wheel of a McLaren 12C around the circuit as part of a special track experience organized by the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team and Mobil 1.

“This is a world class track, it’s really amazing,” Leno said. “I think this circuit could be better than anything in Europe or Asia, it’s really that amazing. I have been completely blown away since I arrived here this morning.”

McLaren test driver Oliver Turvey joined Leno at COTA to give an up-close-and-personal view of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-26, the model used by McLaren’s Formula 1 racing team during the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championships, to compare the consumer and racing McLarens side-by-side.

    If Leno only weighed 60kgs he could probably afford to buy a seat in F1 for 2014.

    Goodness! He isnt wearing a denim shirt for once.

  • haha

    @ fools it seems Mclaren made him a custom denim shirt :D. Glad to see he still has the little boy inside him. I’m sure he’s the kind of guy who would take you for a ride if you ask nicely and you aren’t pushy. Ok his jokes are often dry but dry can also be quite funny. If only our “worldleaders” would be more like him, war would be scrapped from the dictionary.
