Hilton Honors has arranged another tour of the McLaren F1 factory at the Norman Foster-designed McLaren Technology Centre in Woking.
The date is Wednesday 26th June. The cost is 100,000 Hilton Honors points for two people and includes lunch in a private room. There were four packages left at 10pm last night.
No time is given but, as it says there is a lunch after the tour, I presume it is in the morning.
The factory is not normally open to the public so this is a rare opportunity to take a look inside. Reader Nick, who tipped me off about this one, enjoyed his first one so much that he booked himself on the next one too!
You can redeem your points for a pair of tickets here.
