“At the age of nine a stocky New Zealand youngster named Bruce McLaren was dreaming of a career as a racing motor-cyclist. The nearest he got to racing during the next three years was while strapped to a bath-chair in a home for crippled children.” McLaren (1937-1970) went on to design, engineer, invent and drive race-cars, leaving behind a legacy in the McLaren team, one of the most successful Formula Once teams in championship history.
