McLaren has launched the first short film as part of a trilogy celebrating the company's 50th anniversary.

The three-part video series explains the history of the company, focusing on Bruce McLaren who founded the racing team 50 years ago. He passed away at the very young age of 32 when he crashed on the Goodwood circuit in 1970.

The other two videos will be released later this year and will be available on the company's website, as well as McLaren's YouTube and Facebook accounts. Links can be found in the attached press release.

2013 is also an important year for McLaren because they are about to present the P1, a true successor for the legendary F1 launched in the early 90s. It will be unveiled in Geneva next month and go on sale before the end of the year.
