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.
