Just watched the Mclaren movie and I have to say what a magnificent watch.

Great archive clips from newsreel and home movies,with interviews from family and friends. On similiar lines to Senna and Road(Joey Dunlop)movies.

Knew that Bruce was the instigator and inventor of how we see Mclaren today. But his dedication,hard knuckle input and desire was immense.

Great footage from F1 like Mclaren teams first win at Spa in 68. But especially the Can-Am stuff,like Bruce's come from behind win at Mosport in 66.Then the exploits at LeMan and Indianapolis.

Didn't realise too Teddy Mayer and Alistair Caldwells contribution early on. Thought they came into Mclaren much later with James Hunt.

Then the sad ending which leaves you reaching for the hankies.

This is a must watch for any motor sport fan but especially all us GPL nuts.

Definately in my motorsport dvd collection !
