Race With Dad In #TODDLERDRIFT [Video]
When we heard that McLaren had come out with a kid's electric McLaren P1 version, we knew it called for something special. What better way to tie together kids and cars, than with our favorite guys on earth, our dads.
For many, our earliest car memories are of watching our dads, grandpas, or other father-figures wrench on garage projects. For fewer of us, we had the awesome opportunity of going racing with our pops as a kid–in go karting, dirt biking and other entry-level motorsports. Wouldn't it be cool if we could've had good old-fashioned heads-up races in super-powered mini BMW i8s and McLaren P1s?! If we could've, it would've looked a little something like this. Enjoy... and Happy Father's Day!
Behind the Scenes of #TODDLERDRIFT
Having 3- and 4-year-olds drive in a straight line and act on cue can be a challenge, so creating #TODDLERDRIFT took a little patience and a lot of creativity–but our kid stars Zoe and Devon were 100% fabulous! While we were impressed with the race-ready center lock wheels and dihedral doors of the kid-version McLaren P1, don't be fooled, because this version didn't sound quite like the adult P1.
Racing action was created using a combination of kid-driven, pushed and even a little adult-driven P1 fun. Watch #TODDLERDRIFT above to catch all of the larger-than-life action!
