Dennis sets his sights sky high

MCLAREN boss Ron Dennis has always had high ambitions, but now he has got his sights set on Mars.

Dennis' Woking-based team are producing the carbon fibre panels for the body of the Beagle 2 Mars Lander, which is set to land on Mars on Boxing Day in 2003.

NASA have asked McLaren to join the team of constructors because they believe the Formula One team's knowledge of building Formula One cars will be an asset in producing the vessel.
