The story of Bruce McLaren, the New Zealander who founded the McLaren Motor Racing team, who showed the world that a man of humble beginnings could take on the elite of motor racing and win.

Born in New Zealand in 1937, Bruce McLaren only lived to be 32 years old, but in his incredibly short life, he became a motorsports legend. McLaren’s determination to make it to the summit of global motor racing circles saw his name become synonymous with the sport; displaying an incomparable will to succeed and desire to better both himself and his burgeoning super brand.
In following a singular dream, McLaren elicited the loyalty, determination and love of family, friends and colleagues to create a dynasty that lives on to this day. Revealing the challenges and adversities faced along the way, including a childhood illness which threatened to alter the path of his life, McLaren is the story of one man’s unfaltering commitment to his vision which will inspire generations of sporting fans. (New Zealand, 2016, 92 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. Roger Donaldson)
