1959 was a notable year for several events. One was the appearance of Bruce on the major records sheets when he won the United States Grand Prix for Coopers at Sebring and finishing sixth in the World Championship. Another was the emergence of an unknown, Denny Hulme. Bruce was still classified as a New Zealand driver in the early part of the year (he was not to join the Cooper works team until the European season), Bruce won the racing Gold star, a suitable ending to a full year of highly successful racing in both Europe and New Zealand.
The New Zealand series saw Bruce helped by Jack Brabham. Below are photos of Bruce’s 1959 year in New Zealand before heading to Europe.
