About the Book
Bruce McLaren's performances as a F1, endurance, and Can-Am driver
were almost always impressive. But it was the New Zealander's
career as an innovative carbuilder which forever etched the McLaren
name in the annals of motorsport. This photohistory examines
McLaren's legendary endurance and Can-Am racers beginning with the
formation of Bruce McLaren Racing Limited in 1963, continuing
through his death at Goodwood in 1970, and finishing with the
completion of the Can-Am series in 1974. Splendid photography gives
readers views of the cars under construction and in action, and
candid glimpses of Bruce McLaren and other personalities associated
with the organization, including long-time teammate Denis Hulme.
Dave Friedman is a prolific motorsport photographer and historian.
His recent MBI titles include Lola: Can-Am & Endurance Race
Cars and Pro Sports Car Racing in America 1958-1974. He lives in
