Bruce McLaren - Richard Becht

He was all things to motor racing - a man whose prodigious gifts earned him a place in history. In 1959 he became the world's youngest and New Zealand's first F1 Grand Prix winner - a record that would stand for almost 50 years. Tragically on 2 June 1970 less than 11 years after his first Grand Prix success Bruce Leslie McLaren died at the wheel of his car on the test track. Packing more into those glorious days than seemed possible in an extraordinary twist of fate his fame reached greater heights after his death as the motor-racing company he named and created became one of the most prestigious vying with the likes of Mercedes Renault and Ferrari. While McLaren began as a driver he was also a visionary who became an exceptional engineer constructor designer and inventor. Now 40 years after it ended so abruptly his life and achievements are celebrated as never before in the BRUCE MCLAREN SCRAPBOOK.
