60 years after Bruce McLaren made the journey from New Zealand to England to establish the company that still bears his name, two young engineers have followed in his footsteps as part of a scholarship established in his honour.

University of Auckland (UoA) mechanical engineering Students Sabrina Yarndley and Joshua Cates are the latest Bruce McLaren engineering scholars to be welcomed to at McLaren to hone their skills at the Woking-based supercar company.

Joshua and Sabrina will be completing a three-month scholarship that will see them working in multiple departments across the company.

Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Bruce McLaren studied there and went on to become an accomplished engineer and innovator as well as a successful racing driver. He arrived in England in 1958 on a 'Driver to Europe' scholarship and founded the racing team that remains one of the world's most successful names in motorsport. In the 1960s, Bruce also unveiled the first McLaren supercar, the M6GT.
