Bruce McLaren tribute

Racing legend Bruce McLaren will be honoured at next month’s Silverstone Classic. So far, 117 cars bearing the famous name have signed up to take part in a special parade at the famous Northamptonshire circuit over the weekend of 28-30 July.

The New Zealander won Le Mans, two Can-Am titles, and four Grands Prix before he was killed when testing a sports car at Goodwood in 1970. He was 32 years old.

The parade at Silverstone Classic will take place on the Sunday and include a P1 hypercar, as well as the latest road-going models. Leading the pack will be Bruce’s daughter, Amanda. McLaren’s only child, she was just four years old when her father died.
