Life of a Legend

A film based on the life of NZ motorsport legend Bruce McLaren is rumoured to be in the works. According to Grand Prix website, the production has been linked to “some of those involved with the Lord of the Rings trilogy.” McLaren was one of the first New Zealanders to enjoy racing success in Europe, winning his first Grand Prix at 22. He launched his own formula one racing team – Team McLaren – in 1964, which has continued to dominate the sport long after its founder’s death in 1970.
