It’s fantastic to know the funds raised from the auction of our Racing Through The Ages 570S Spider will go to such a noble and well-respected cause. We look forward to an ongoing partnership and supporting One Drop whenever possible in the future.” – Chris Blank, Brand Manager at McLaren Beverly Hills
