“Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.” Bruce McLaren 1964.
New Zealand racing driver, designer, engineer and inventor Bruce McLaren (1937-1970) built his first racing car in 1964 and road-going cars from 1969 until his death testing a Can-Am car at Goodwood in 1970. McLaren cars continued to have great success in motorsport, particularly in F1 and Can-Am for many decades, also winning the Indy 500 three times in the 1970’s. McLaren Automotive built their first car, the F1, in 1992 and continues today to build very fast and very expensive supercars at their base in Woking.
