Bruce McLaren Movie Enlightens
Bruce McLaren died June 2nd, 1970 at the Good Wood Circuit in England. He was just 32. But from his very first hillclimb at 14, to his untimely demise, Bruce McLaren managed to carve his name so large that he is still talked about as being one of the greatest innovators in motor racing history.
While his many accolades include being the youngest driver (at the time) to win the US Grand Prix at age 22, winning Monte Carlo and others, the New Zealander is famous for both his high powered sports cars competing in the Can-Am Series, winning numerous races including Le Mans in a Ford GT, and his founding McLaren Racing Team in 1963.
Today, the McLaren Racing Team has become just McLaren, the Formula One team based in Woking, Surrey.
I saw a bootleg copy last year. Less a story of death, it stands as a wonderful tribute to a man that motor sports will never forget.
