Confidence is a tool you can use in your everyday life to do all kinds of cool stuff, but not many people realise that confidence works just like a muscle - it grows in response to the level of performance required of it.

The word 'satisfaction' is written on these faces
Speaking of confidence, heading to a track experience requires quite a bit of it and for a selected group of drivers eager to explore the performance of a McLaren in a safe environment, the British carmaker had just the event for them to explore and build up their confidence - on track that is.

The first Asian leg of the Pure McLaren Driving Experience event was held at the famed Sepang International Circuit and it gave drivers the opportunity to push the marque's sports cars to the limit to allow them to experience the unmatched racing pedigree that's in every McLaren.

McLaren 570S

This was the very first chance in Asia for driving enthusiasts to experience the first model of the recently announced Sports Series - the 570S.

Dramatic design is as eye-catching as it is functional
The car may be McLaren's entry level model and may be the weakest in terms of horsepower but it proved to be a pleasant surprise on track.The 570S dares to dial back the technical overkill of its siblings in favour of a sweeter, more fluid, less fretful driving experience.

Powered by a revised version of McLaren's 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine complemented by a seamless-shift gearbox for ultra-fast, ultra-smooth gearshifts, 562bhp and 600Nm of torque is driven to the rear wheels.

From standstill, the 570S will reach 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, making it a lot slower than its siblings, and this is also felt when you realise there is that slight lack of punch as you are accelerating out of a bend. But it's the way the 570S makes you feel as it delivers those figures that's more impressive.

On track, the baby McLaren feels remarkably more natural in its movements than some of its bigger and badder brethrens and is surprisingly the one that gives you the most confidence to go deeper into each corner.
