The McLaren P1 has an incredible Race Mode, lowering the car 50mm on the suspension to tuck the tyres into the arches, as well as raising the rear wing by 300mm at a 29 degree angle, in which it can produce 600kg of downforce at 160mph.
The Race Mode itself is designed for optimum driving dynamics and track performance, allowing the total 903bhp hypercar to blast around the track. Note that in Race Mode it is illegal to use the car on the public highway!
Thanks for watching, Tim

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE.
Before taking to the track at night, Chris Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the pre-production prototype for P1.
The car has had a long life over the past 15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.
