    Big McLaren F1 thread on Pistonheads.com

    Hey Guys,

    After reading the 100th issue of Evo they mentioned that the McLaren F1 they were driving belonged to a dude on the piston head forums called flemke. Well my amazing detective uncovered this huge thread on the Mc F1. Fantastic reading where the owner really gets in depth with his experiences and knowledge of the car.

    Its 128 pages long, I'm up to page 10 and already know more about the F1 than I ever did before.

    Enjoy...http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/t...=&t=226933&h=0

              No offence to Q but I think flemke is in another league...he's also a little older than the q'ster...

              Flemke is 79 for fucks sake! Owns a Carrera GT, 911, Mc F1, 959 and some other stuff that I can't remember....

              The amount he must be spending on the McF1 to get it to handle how he wants is unbelievable, custom wheels, lots of custom parts. Five figure amounts to replace the clutch....insane shit for sure. I'm up to page 36 and i've been reading on and off all day.

                I've got a copy of that book, it's excellent. the $435 version is probably the (very) limited edition one they put out.

                  If you didn't work it out, 'Master H' in that thread is Liam Howlett from The Prodigy.

                    Yeh I figured that out. I like how subtle they were once they worked it out...

                    I've wasted so much of my day reading this fucking thread! I love it...

                          Any more info of the 'flemke' guy who owns the F1? He alludes to painting or something similar as a hobby but he's coy about whay he does for a crust, sounds like he's done alright for himself after humble beginnings.

                            there's some mention that he's in the financial services sector in there somewhere. He understandable doesn't want to make it too obvious who he is though.
