DFC member breaks NYST lap record

Having enjoyed the track day at NYST very much in May, DFCers were eager to go back there before the end of the year to check out the improvements they had made at the track and try to better their lap times. One of the members Jerome brought his McLaren 12C to the track and by the second half of the day started running such fast times that the track officials wanted to time him to see if could break the track record. Sure enough he pushed the car hard to a record 1.35.7!

Around 40 cars participated in this event by donating toys for the Center’s children and their siblings as well as displaying their cars for the children to sit in, honk the horn and hopefully put a smile on their faces.
