  • Formula One exhibition (Wellington, NZ)

    There is currently a Formula One exhibition on at Te Papa museum here in Wellington. It runs until 1 November. The exhibition is focussing on the design element of F1 cars, but also has a good history about F1 and the New Zealand drivers that have been involved with it over the years (mainly Bruce McLaren, Denny Hulme and Chris Amon). There are 9 F1 cars on display in the exhibition ranging from the Lotus 16 (1958) to the McLaren MP4-21 (2006).

    Here are a few photos...

    McLaren M7A - Denny Hulme (NZ), 1968.

    Bradham BT20 - Jack Brabham, 1966.

    McLaren MP4-21 (2006) - exhibited in 2009 livery for Lewis Hamilton.
