Bruce McLaren arrived in Europe in 1958 virtually unknown. As this fascinating biography relates, by the time of his fatal testing accident 12 years later he had established himself on both sides of the Atlantic as a driver of extraordinary versatility. He also founded the team that went on to become one of the most successful in Formula 1. Content includes McLaren's fifth-place effort in the 1958 German Grand Prix and runner-up finish in the Autocar F2 Championship; his victory at the 1959 American Grand Prix, where he became the youngest-ever GP winner; his second-place finish in the 1960 World Championship; building and racing his own car, the McLaren M1A; winning Le Mans for Ford in 1966 with Chris Amon, and Sebring in 1967 with Mario Andretti; and success in the Can-Am series as a constructor and two-time driver champion.
