McLaren fires up Bruce's first racer

Today would have been the 82nd birthday of racing legend Bruce McLaren.

The Kiwi's and his team's extraordinary achievements in motorsport during the sixties and seventies - in Formula 1, Can-Am or IndyCar - established an outstanding legacy that continues to prosper and inspire.

For Bruce, it all started in New-Zealand with a trusty 1929 Austin 7.

To celebrate McLaren Racing's founder on this milestone day, Ray 'Tex' Rowe - McLaren's longest serving team member - fired up the bright red little racer.

And went for an emotional little ride around Woking. Check out the video.
