Video: McLaren 50 - Courage

As you probably know, this year marks McLaren’s 50th anniversary and the company announced some cool events to commemorate the event. The celebration continues today with the unveiling of a video that "sheds light on McLaren’s very human backstory."

You probably guessed it, the video talks about Bruce McLaren, who founded his racing team five decades ago. The story of the video ends with the crash at the Goodwood circuit in 1970 when Bruce McLaren died at the young age of only 32 years old.

Our favorite part of the video is the following: "What might be seen as a tragic end was in fact a beginning. As I always said, to do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy. Indeed, life is not measured in years alone but in achievement."

A very sad, yet inspiring video that any car buff will enjoy.
