McLaren Launches a Short Film Titled "COURAGE" as Part of its 50th Anniversary [video]

McLaren has unveiled the first of three specially commissioned short films, as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations. The first film is titled “Courage” and focuses McLaren’s very human back-story – namely that of Bruce McLaren, who founded his racing team five decades ago.

Directed by Marcus Söderlund, the short film follows the ghost of Bruce McLaren as he retraces the scene of his crash at the Goodwood circuit in 1970 – the crash that took his life at the tragically young age of 32.

“…What might be seen as a tragic end was in fact a beginning. As I always said, to do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy. Indeed, life is not measured in years alone but in achievement…”

Parts two and three will be released later this year.
