New Zealand Classic Car - - News -

T

he in­spi­ra­tional doc­u­men­tary ac­count of Bruce Mclaren’s pioneering spirit, unswerv­ing tenac­ity, and end­less pas­sion,

Mclaren, is set to grace the big screen this June. Di­rected by Roger Don­ald­son ( The World’s

Fastest In­dian), Mclaren is the true story of the man be­hind one of the great­est brands in in­ter­na­tional mo­tor sport. A fear­less rac­ing driver, a vi­sion­ary and bril­liant en­gi­neer, Bruce Mclaren was a hum­ble New Zealan­der who be­came a su­per­star in the world of 1960s Formula 1 rac­ing.

Direc­tor Roger Don­ald­son says, “I was de­lighted to be in­volved in the telling of such an in­cred­i­ble New Zealand story — bring­ing it to life on the big screen has been a huge ef­fort from all in­volved in Bruce’s legacy. Ever since see­ing Bruce Mclaren and Jack Brab­ham race each other in the Tas­man se­ries years ago, I’ve been a Mclaren fan. Few peo­ple know just how ex­tra­or­di­nary his jour­ney was, and how much he ac­com­plished in his short life”.

The film fea­tures con­tri­bu­tions from renowned driv­ers Emer­son Fit­ti­paldi, Alas­tair Cald­well, Dan Gur­ney, Lothar Motschen­bacher, Chris Amon, How­den Gan­ley, Mario An­dretti, and Sir Jackie Ste­wart, and of­fers un­prece­dented ac­cess to the Mclaren fam­ily and ar­chives.

Mclaren will be re­leased in New Zealand cin­e­mas June 1, 2017.
