On Sunday morning, as we drove past the Hotel Cala Grande in Las Negras, we noticed a sleek white sports car parked outside the entrance. A film crew was busy poring over the car and we were unable to park up to find out more about what was going on.
This morning, when we called at the hotel to check on the painting exhibition, I asked Oriol, the Manager, about the car and the filming. He said it was a new, top secret sports car built by McLaren. For security reasons, they contacted him only the day before about using the hotel and no independent photos were allowed to be taken and the official ones will not be released until the car is launched. We have seen Porsches, Ferraris and Aston Martins driving around the winding roads of the Parque Natural, usually held up by a German hippy van, but a brand new McLaren is a scoop. Look out for the launch pictures.

My exhibition there runs until next weekend.
