The motorsport recollections of Bob McMurray. Includes B&W and colour photos.
Bob McMurray has just about seen all you can in motorsport, right from the halcyon days when Bruce McLaren was setting up his fledgling Formula One team through to witnessing the first Kiwi to win one of the most prestigious motor-racing trophies, the Borg Warner at the Indianapolis 500. We find out about the many and varied roles McMurray and his wife Shaune had during the 33 years they spent with McLaren from being a mechanic, getting his HGV licence, his involvement with an F3 team (the driver of which is now Scott Dixon's manager), his role in explaining the inner workings of Formula One to a long line of internationally famous celebrities, and his move into the media.
Bob McMurray is New Zealand's top motorsport commentator, and manager of the AIGP team. He's spent more than 35 years in motorsport, mainly with Team McLaren, and he knows what goes on behind the pit wall. Bob's biography is a colourful collection of stories about drivers who risked it all, the cars, the characters, the heroes and the villains. From Bruce McLaren to Scott Dixon, from Denny Hulme to Shane von Gisbergen - find out about the teams, the crews, the families and the personalities of motorsport, from someone who was there.
