An inspirational story for children about New Zealand motor racing legend and founder of the McLaren Racing Team, Bruce McLaren. For children aged 8 to 90 years old.
Bruce McLaren was a Kiwi hero who took the world of motor racing by storm. But it wasn’t always that way. At the age of 11, he contracted Perthes Syndrome and spent two years with his legs in plaster, confined to a Bradshaw Frame bed, in the Wilson Home for Crippled Children. But Bruce had a big dream: about going faster. After years of hard work, study, commitment and passion, and devoted to the art of going faster, he became a World Champion.
Bruce Wants to Go Faster tells the story of Bruce McLaren – from hospital gurney, which he raced around the wards at night when the nurses were off duty, to racing with the Auckland Car Club before heading to Europe and the big league: Silverstone, Brands Hatch, the German Grand Prix. Quickly, he became a star driver for the Cooper Car Company and at the age of 22, the youngest driver to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
