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.
