Three series. Three races. One team. It is no secret that this year marks the 60th anniversary of Bruce McLaren founding the now famed team. From the iconic road cars to the incredible feats McLaren Racing has amassed in motorsports throughout the past six decades, one particular 'trophy' stands out among the rest - the Triple Crown of Motorsports. With the condition of winning three of the most prestigious races in the world – the Indianapolis 500, Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and 24 Hours of Le Mans, it is an achievement like no other. And we are thrilled to join in on the celebrations!

The story of McLaren Racing's Triple Crown dates back to 1974. The first win of the three famed races came at the Indianapolis 500 where McLaren won with their M16D, driven by Johnny Rutherford. The second win came precisely 10 years later at the 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, with Alain Prost sitting behind the wheel of the legendary red and white MP4/2. Acquiring the third crown in 1995, McLaren's F1 GTR shocked everyone at the Circuit de la Sarthe during its first entry at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With 4 of the entered F1's finishing among the first 5 places, it was the perfect ending to McLaren Racing's Triple Crown dreams.

We are thrilled to join McLaren Racing for the celebrations with our special dedicated poster to the historical feat. Depicting all three crowned cars, the poster highlights McLaren's legendary vehicles on a pedestal that also serves as a timeline for the manufacturer's achievement. Sitting on a minimalistic backdrop in McLaren's brand colours, the vehicles are displayed in their full glory. From the race-worn tires to the dirty chassis, the iconic racing machines are captured as if they just crossed the finish line.
