Dan won the race and Denny finished third. When it was over, Denny sat in the car in pit lane for a very long time. He didn’t really have the strength to get out and couldn’t get one of his hands off the steering wheel because of the unhealed damage from the fire. Those two guys on that day brought Bruce McLaren Motor Racing back to life, along with the fortitude and hard work of all the people in Colnbrook who made it possible to be there in the first place. Denny really had the balls and guts to do what he did considering how bad his hands were. Later on he told us that he just had to do it for his friend, Bruce.
