Bruce McLaren was an innovator, a motivator of colleagues and a tiger behind the wheel.He won a race in his first Grand Prix season, won Sebring and Le Mans with Ford and was twice a winner of the
fabled Can-Am sports-racing championship. Tragically, he was killed at Goodwood whilst testing his 1970 car. Bruce McLaren was a secret weapon for many teams whose car ran better because of his ministrations as a tester of great insight. Ford in particular had reason to be grateful to him for more than his own victories. Thanks to the Bruce McLaren Trust, this book can reveal the secret of his success of the 'dead-heat' finish of the Fords at Le Mans in 1966. Bruce's can do character made McLaren the first team to successfully compete in Formula 1, the Can-Am and Indycar racing. Robin Herds forward helps to explain why. It's heritage to which the modern McLaren International can point proudly. Embedded in its origins is the unforgettable personality of a fine man who settled only for the best. A very good conditioned hardcover book with only slight discolouring on jacket. Total number of pages is 208.
