In 1948 11-year-old Bruce McLaren defied doctors in Auckland, New Zealand who told him he might never walk again, becoming a leading international motor racingchampion, winning Grand Prix races and establishing a team that still carries his name in Formula One. With an enviable reputation as a safe driver with an engineeringbackground who respected limits, his tragic death while testing a new CanAm sports car at Goodwood in June 1970 shocked the racing world. In a perceptive retelling Eoin Young calls on memories of Bruce from fellow team members, McLaren family and friends and Bruce's own words to provide an insight into whatdrove him to become one of the racing greats of his time.
