Cooper T45 Climax

This is a photograph I took on practice day at Aintree for the British Grand Prix in July 1959.
It's Bruce McLaren in his Cooper T45 Climax. He qualified in eighth place on the grid and finished the race in third place behind his team mate (and World Champion-to-be) Jack Brabham in a Cooper T51 and Stirling Moss in the light green British Racing Partnership BRM P25. Bruce McLaren finished the season in sixth place in the Championship winning the final race of the year, the US Grand Prix at Sebring.
