Description of this Book
"Bruce McLaren was just a normal Kiwi boy who dreamed about going faster. He went on to become one of the world's best drivers and car designers and had almost unparalleled succes with his own team. As a result, the name McLaren has not only left a permanent impression on New Zealand and world motorsport history, it is also one of the most successful, well recognised and longstanding motorsport teams in the world. Bruce had many personality traits that helped him achieve his dream and by analysing them we can all follow our own dreams and be ordinary Kiwis who do extraordinary things"--Publisher's website.
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||I loved this book. Typical of the New Zealand spirit, overcoming one obstacle after another and with the bare minimum. He may have started out a bit wonky, but he ended up conquering the world! Bruce McLaren is an inspiration. Craig Smith, bestselling author of The Wonky Donky. Bruce's journey shows how you can achieve your dreams even when the path seems impossible, and that's exactly what I want my kids growing up knowing. I love the idea of sharing a Kiwi story with them. Toni Street, Broadcaster & journalist, TV One, Seven Sharp.
