"I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone."
Both on and off the track, McLaren has become known as one of the premier motoring companies. They’ve been one of the most successful Formula One teams and have produced some of the fastest road going vehicles today. So where did it all start.
Sheer determination. That’s what people remember most about company founder, Bruce McLaren.
It was alive deep within him even as a 15-year-old schoolboy – driving him to rebuild an old Austin 7 from a box of bits, and compete in his first race. The passion for cars, for racing, had been ignited. Working his way up through club races in and around his native Auckland, Bruce’s skill took him to the pinnacle of motorsport – Formula 1™. He won his first grand prix at just 22. The youngest-ever winner at the time.
But driving alone wasn’t enough. Bruce had the mind of engineer. He formed a racing team in 1963 to build his own cars. Later, this led to road car division. Where the spirit of this warm, supremely talented man still inspires every car McLaren company builds today.
The enduring determination, innovation and passion of people has led McLaren to unprecedented racing success.
Their achievements as a manufacturer include victories across an unmatched spectrum of competition racing. Chief among these triumphs sits the Triple Crown… the incredible feat of winning the Formula 1™ World Championship, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans (in our first ever road car, the McLaren F1). The pinnacle of single-seater racing. Action-packed oval racing. And the world’s most prestigious endurance race.
Three vastly different motorsport categories.
