Trailer: New film to tell the story of Bruce McLaren
So much more than just a driver
A new feature film on the life of Bruce McLaren is set to hit cinemas soon.
McLaren was just 32 when he died in a testing crash in 1970, but by then he had already made a name for himself as one of the world's fastest drivers - and most innovative engineers.
A Le Mans 24 Hours and multiple Grand Prix winner, it is his legacy as a constructor that McLaren is perhaps best remembered for, having founded the team that still carries his name and is now one of the most successful in Formula 1 history.
Now fellow New Zealander and Hollywood director Roger Donaldson - who counts blockbusters Cocktail, The Bank Job and The Recruit among his previous projects - has made a film about McLaren's rise from humble beginnings to the very top of international motorsport.
It will be out in cinema's soon, but you can check out the trailer here:
