David Fairchild, Managing Director at WP Group, and his wife Adele recently attended a Mobil-organised evening attended by key members of the McLaren Team with a few surprise guests.
Unbeknown to David, Martin Whitmarsh, Team Principle, attended the event, which was a wonderful opportunity for any motorsport fan, but the highlight for all was the appearance of Lewis Hamilton, the former Formula One World Champion.
Lewis spoke with many of the attendees and posed for photos; a great memento of the evening’s activities for the Fairchilds to take away.
David, a lifelong Motorsport fan, commented: “this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet one of Formula 1’s brightest stars. Both Adele and I had a wonderful evening and we would like to extend our thanks to Mobil for inviting us.”
WP Group would like to wish McLaren continued success with the rest of the season.
