Team McLaren has been the most successful team in world motorsport since it appeared in 1966. McLaren cars and drivers have taken the chequered flag at Grand Prix races 123 times, won 19 Formula One World Championship titles (more than any other team in the history of the sport), dominated CamAm events (56 wins between 1967 and 1972) and taken three Indianapolis 500 races. The man who started it all, Aucklander Bruce McLaren, was a brilliant driver, with vision that extended far beyond the driver's seat. He became the engineer, the inventor, the constructor, the tester. Bruce McLaren took the essence of the New Zealand Edge and transformed it into arguably the greatest motor racing team in history. Joined by Denny Hulme in 1968, together the fellow New Zealanders enjoyed great success until McLaren's death in 1970 but McLaren had created an unparrelled team ethos and loyalty that saw Hulme build a new model McLaren in 72 and oversee the creation of the McLaren dynasty until his death in 1992.
