McLaren's origin story gets the Tooned treatment

British television network Sky has aired the second episode of Tooned, and this time, the digitally animated cartoon follows the story of McLaren founder Bruce McLaren and his early life in New Zealand. McLaren drivers, who were the focus of the first episode, take a back seat on this one.

The fable shows a young McLaren attempting to build his car to go 100 miles per hour through trial, error and fierce determination, knowing that he'd hit a few bumps along the road before he could become successful. His first race was in a modified Austin Seven that his father built, however, which is animated into the cartoon in the form of an old, red car.
