Beyond the four wheels

McLaren is one of the most beloved brands known to motoring fans worldwide. Whether it’s the exciting Formula 1 races or the refinement and sophistication of its passenger cars, the automaker has become synonymous with quality and style.

However, if the brand is one of the most famous on the planet, the history of its creator is not well known. And it is exactly the personal and professional trajectory of Bruce McLaren, founder of the brand, that became the subject of a documentary.

Entitled McLaren, the film chronicles some of the key moments in New Zealander Bruce McLaren’s life on and off the tracks. The production was in charge of the director Roger Donaldson that has in his curriculum several works of movies of great success.

For those who still do not know the title character, it is worth remembering that he was one of the youngest riders to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix, founded his own team and died in his 30s in a race accident.

The release date of the documentary has not yet been officialized, but it will certainly be a good time to learn more about the history of one of the most visionary creators of recent times.
