Jaguar F1 car gets Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator 3 premiere into action!

One of the world's biggest sports came together with one of the world's biggest movie stars last night as Jaguar F1 driver Mark Webber opened the premiere of Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines by driving his F1 car through Leicester Square - the first time a Formula One car has been driven through the streets of London. Fresh from contesting the British Grand Prix on Sunday, the Terminator 3-liveried F1 car wheel-span it's way into Leicester Square in front of 8,000 screaming fans.

Jaguar Racing Mark Webber said: "It was an exhilarating experience and very different to anything I have done on the race track! The crowds were simply unbelievable and the noise they were making was almost louder than what the Jaguar F1 car was generating! I drove the car from one end of Leicester Square to the other and parked it up next to the red carpet where the stars and celebrities were making their entrance."

"There wasn't the space to go too fast but I couldn't resist spinning the wheels and giving the crowds something to really cheer about. Arnold Schwarzenegger was a guest of Jaguar's at the British Grand Prix and his presence there was simply unbelievable. Having seen the T3 movie last night, it is not hard to see why he is such a mega-star."

In keeping with the Jaguar theme, Arnold arrived at the premiere in a black Jaguar XJ saloon while his nemesis in the movie played by Kristanna Loken arrived in a unique polished aluminium XJ - the only one of it's kind in the world.

Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines opens across the UK on 1st August 2003
