The Bruce McLaren Scrapbook
de Richard Becht et Jan Mclaren, Harper Collins 2011, 260 pages 28.5 x 21 cm, couverture rigide sous jaquette, nombreuses photos couleur et NB, texte anglais.
He was all things to motor racing - a man whose prodigious gifts earned him a place in history.
In 1959 he became the world′s youngest and New Zealand′s first F1 Grand Prix winner - a record that would stand for almost 50 years.
Tragically, on 2 June 1970, less than 11 years after his first Grand Prix success, Bruce Leslie McLaren died at the wheel of his car, on the test track.
Packing more into those glorious days than seemed possible, in an extraordinary twist of fate, his fame reached greater heights after his death, as the motor-racing company he named and created became one of the most prestigious, vying with the likes of Mercedes, Renault and Ferrari.
While McLaren began as a driver, he was also a visionary, who became an exceptional engineer, constructor, designer and inventor.
Now, 40 years after it ended so abruptly, his life and achievements are celebrated as never before, in THE BRUCE MCLAREN SCRAPBOOK.
