Vintage Canadian motor car racing ephemera relating to Bob McLean who died in 1966 at Sebring raceway whilst driving a Ford GT40, including a hand written letter and black and white photograph of Sir Stirling Moss and Bob McLean signed by both drivers.
Bob McLean was a successful Canadian racing driver who won races and championships in his homeland driving Cooper Formula Junior and Lotus 23 sports car.
He got a big break when selected to drive for Comstock Racing in their Ford GT40 at Sebring in 1966.
Unfortunately due to some sort of mechanical problem, the GT40 veered off the track, struck a wooden pole, rolled and immediately burst into flames. There was no hope for McLean who was killed in the accident.
