Bob McLean

inducted 1993 – Competitor – Road Racing


Bob McLean came barnstorming across the country in 1965, winning the Canadian Driving Championship and proving to the eastern establishment that western drivers could run with the best. He did his own mechanical work and stretched every dollar to do it. It seemed that getting a ride the next year in a Comstock Ford GT-40 for the Sebring 12 hours was his big break. But it ended in tragedy when he crashed and died during the race.
