Pupils win a money can’t buy experience to spend a day in the life of a McLaren Automotive engineer

The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Programme teamed up with McLaren Automotive to give young people interested in a career in engineering the chance to win an exclusive tour of the famous McLaren Technology Centre.

The lucky winner was Cameron Tait, 11, from Windlesham in Surrey, who made himself popular with his friends when he brought them along to the VIP tour on Thursday 1 September.

As part of the tour, including lunch in McLaren’s Private Dining area, the boys had the unique opportunity to quiz racing engineer, Jenni Oakham, and automotive engineer, Chris Gosling, about their jobs, and got hands-on with the groundbreaking new McLaren MP4-12C high performance sports car.
