Amanda McLaren

Amanda and Bruce"...we are delighted that this film is going to be made. So many people are unaware of Bruce’s achievements, how he founded the team that still exists today and  his success in so many aspects of motor racing – something that even Ferrari have not been able to emulate. His friends and colleagues also remember Bruce as an inspirational leader and motivator and my mother and I are looking forward to seeing this film completed and honouring the legacy of a great man, husband and father."

Amanda is Bruce and Patty’s only child. She was born in 1965 in London, and was just approaching five years old when her father was killed.

Like a lot of young girls Amanda had a passion for horse riding and some of her favourite memories are of times spent with her father at Bushy Park, with its stables, riding school and bridleways.

Amanda and Bruce and a TreeLater in life Amanda gained a degree in nursing and became a registered nurse, as well as completing a University Masters Degree in Health Management. Horses are still a part of her life and she continues to enjoy riding on her farm near Wellington, where she also offers training and guidance to a new generation of riders.

Amanda has been heavily involved with Team BLM in the development of the movie, providing information and guidance on how she and her mother would like to see the film progress, and is looking forward to the project's next stages.

Amanda currently works for McLaren Automotive at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, England.
