McLaren released a first trailer of the biographical film dedicated to its founder, Bruce McLaren.

This film will tell the story of the New Zealander racing driver, engineer and the inventor who went on and became not only the founder of McLaren Motor Racing team and also the youngest driver of the era to have won the grand prix.

Four years after his maiden F1 victory, Bruce McLaren founded his own racing team, setting the foundations for a historic brand McLaren is these days.

The M1A became the first McLaren vehicle in 1964 and its successor, the M1B entered the inaugural Can-Am championship and finishing third in the series. McLaren took its first title the next year and marking a start of one of the most impressive stints in motorsports history. Between 1967 and 1970, McLaren won 37 out of the 43 Can-Am races, and with 19 of them being one-twos.

Unfortunately, Bruce McLaren died at young age, when the M8D Can-Am race vehicle he was testing spun out of control at the Goodwood Circuit in 1970 and never got a chance to see his company become one of the leading brands in the industry.

This film is expect to be released soon.
