McLaren and Starlight teamed up to treat two seriously ill F1 fans by inviting them to the launch of the McLaren-Honda MCL32 Formula 1 car.
Sam, who has Ewing’s sarcoma, and Oliver, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia on Christmas Eve in 2012, attended the launch of the McLaren-Honda MCL32 Formula 1 car at the McLaren Technology Centre after being the lucky recipients of a McLaren Golden Ticket.
At the launch, Sam and Oliver were given a full tour of the McLaren Technology Centre and saw how the cars were made. Much to their delight, they also met McLaren’s drivers, Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne!
The whole team is absolutely thrilled to have worked with Starlight to get such big McLaren fans in Oliver and Sam exclusive Golden Tickets to the launch of our new MCL32 challenger. It makes today extra special for everyone at McLaren that they can both share our big moment with us.
