The man who established what is now the second most successful grand prix team of all time
Bruce formed his own team in 1964. In partnership with abrasive American Teddy Mayer, the popular McLaren built his company into a successful, professional outfit with a reputation for technical excellence.
Arrived to europe on a scholarship from the New Zealand Grand Prix Association in March 1958. Became the youngest-ever GP winner (at 22) when he won the 1959 US GP at Sebring. Bruce lost his life at Goodwood while testing his new CanAm car, a pice of bodywork flew from the car sending it out of controll and hitting a unused marshalls post killing Bruce instantly.
