McLaren film to launch today

The Bruce McLaren movie which we reported about recently is taking place today at Taupo in New Zealand, to coincide with the A1 Grand Prix event. The film is to be produced by Michael Garlick and Barrie M Osborne, the latter having been the producer of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Among those who are expected at the event are Patty McLaren-Brickett, Bruce McLaren's widow, his daughter Amanda, his sister Jan, plus Sir Jack Brabham, Chris Amon, Emerson Fittipaldi and former McLaren Racing directors Eoin Young and Phil Kerr, plus Wally Willmott, one of the original team mechanics. The event will also be attended by New Zealand government minister Jim Anderton.
