It’s back. And I think the engines still in fire wink

McLaren were very good. Less than a week. New catalytic converter and all the other little bugs fixed too at the same time.

They threw in a factory tour and a pure driving day as an apology which is nice!
That's very good service from McLaren..This thread has ended up in my perception of McLaren after sales service going up a few notches.

Kudos to McLaren for their excellent customer service here.

And glad it was such a minor issue, albeit scary at the time, although I'd say easily avoidable by better QC and clips!

Just had the same thing happen on my Fiat Ducato Horsebox that I took for a drive ... thank goodness there wasn't a horse or two on board.

4000 miles only. Irritating !

I was waiting for this to appear on PH smile

The car was mistreated (no cool down lap) and the owner spilled petrol on hot brakes, starting the inferno.



Witness comment, pasted verbatim:

"Hello, im chilean, i was there, one of the causes that is most probable to be is that the owner did 12 out of 15 laps allowed and without doing the correct procedure to cool down the car it was way to hot, then they put some gas on the car and some gas fell down into the calipers and then it caught fire.
It had mods, dont know which ones, the insurance wont do anything because he was on track"
