Gordon Murray on the iPlayer

If you missed the excellent documentary on the founding father of the McLaren F1, catch it here

Murray Mania swept the nation yesterday evening. Once a sobbing racquetsmith had stopped crying, BBC Four broadcast a fascinating documentary on another Murray - Gordon Murray.

The hour-long film profiles Gordon's varied and vastly successful career. From shaking up the world of F1 through his pursuit of loopholes in the 70s and 80s, to making the world's lightest car in the 90s, then the world's fastest car, as well as his latest project, the T.25, which James had a go in recently.  

If you're like James May and enjoy nerdy talks about fans, valves and effervescently patterned shirts - you'll love it.

So if you're in the UK, click HERE for mullets, moustaches and some incredible engineering and design.

Now share it...
