Dates of existence



Bob McLean was a racecar driver who was killed racing the very first GT40 chassis at the 1966 Sebring 12 Hours. McLean was born in 1933 in Port Pirie, in Southern Australia. He moved all over the world but eventually settled on the West Coast of Canada. He raced his MGA in the first race at Westwood Racetrack on opening day, July 26, 1959. In 1965, he dominated the Canadian Championship, winning 19 out of 21 races. His record caught the attention of Ford and he was offered a single-race contract to drive the Mk1 GT40 at the twelve-hour race in Sebring. Four people were killed during the race, including McLean.
