This is the story of Bruce McLaren and the racing team he founded. Best known as the team that has dominated the Can-Am series of sports car races, this organization has, in addition, been most active in other classes, from Formula I to Indianapolis.
The author, Eoin S. Young, a regular contributor to Road & Track, is still a part of McLaren Racing. In this book he has paid a fitting tribute to his long-time friend by compiling a splendid biography of the person who was the moving force behind it all.
McLaren! The Man, the Cars & the Team is illustrated with nearly 200 halftones, including photographs and specifications of all the McLaren cars by type number, from the M1A-Olds of 1964 to the M19 of 1971. In short, an excellent book covering the modern automobile racing scene.
