Bruce McLaren's Tapes

While living abroad, Bruce used to make tapes of his thoughts and stories to send back to his family back in New Zealand. For four decades these tapes have been guarded by his family and only recently have they made some of the stories available to the public.

Tape 1 Bruce shares his views about the slightly different pace of life in England.  

Lacking in speed and horsepower Bruce has to use a few tricks to try and keep up with the Ferraris.
