Video: Jeremy Clarkson Blasts Around Spa Circuit in McLaren P1 with Helicopter Chasing!

We recently brought you the news and images of Jeremy Clarkson driving the McLaren P1 in Bruges, Belgium. Footage has just been caught of the TopGear star driving the dark purple hypercar around the legendary Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium in fury. Mr. Clarkson was seen driving and pushing the car to it’s limits whilst being chased by a Mercedes ML camera car and later on a Helicopter that swooped down very close to the circuit, quite a spectacle to behold!

A number of tech features make the McLaren P1 a very fast car. Cutting straight to the figures, the McLaren P1 will travel from zero to 100km/h in less than 3 seconds, zero to 200km/h in under 7 seconds, and zero to 300km/h in no more than 17 seconds. This is thanks, in part to the Instant Power Assist System (IPAS) which is essentially KERS, for road cars. Putting the 300km/h statistic into perspective, this is 11 seconds faster than the legendary McLaren F1 road car. Top speed is electronically limited to 350km/h.

We can’t wait to see the feature film aired in the next series!

  1. Terrible powerslide… Jeremy talks talks tlaks. Good old Tiff Needell is way better. He and Chris Harris. Clarksson sucks

  2. ehhh.. tiff needel is a better driver but that doesnt make him a better person for a car show. for one hes not as good of a presenter overall but also for a car show having a professional racing driver to tell you what a car is like doesnt really make sense if you think about it. pro racing drivers see and feel cars completely differently to anyone else simply because they are so good at driving them. it makes more sense to have a normal person reviewing the cars because as clarkson like most people hasnt got much racing experience his feelings of a car will be much more like what other normal people with no or not much racing experience would feel. the only time having a pro racing driver in a car show like top gear really makes sense is when you want a comparison of how fast two cars are and top gear has the stig for that.
