In 1970, Bruce McLaren died at England's Goodwood race course while testing a Can-Am car. The McLaren company is the only race team to have won Formula One, Indianapolis 500, Can-Am and LeMans championship. The team was the first to design a car using a carbon fiber monocoque, which is now in use by all teams. The team still competes in Formula One and won the 2008 World Championship.
The McLaren M8F was one of a series produced as evolving models from the late 1960s into the mid-1970s. This car is one of three factory-built M8Fs and is claimed to be the 1971 Can-Am world Championship winning car driven by Peter Revson. The car won four of nine races that year on the way to this championship.
