Description

Eoin Young's anecdotal reminiscences about Bruce McLaren, his great friend and compatriot, will be compelling reading for fans of 1960s motor racing. Drawing from his own memories, interviews with Bruce's inner circle, the young kiwi's letters home, the magazine column they co-wrote and contemporary newspaper reports, Young recreates that golden era when racing drivers were mates and racing was fun.
