Star Kiwi actor Neill attended the premiere screening in Auckland of McLaren last night, where he told TVNZ's Seven Sharp programme he was "booked the other day" and "lost a few points" for speeding but wouldn't reveal how fast he was travelling. 

The feature-length documentary McLaren is about the life and career of motor racing icon Bruce McLaren.

McLaren, then a 22-year-old from Auckland, won the US Grand Prix in 1959.

He was then the youngest person to ever claim the top podium spot, and it was the start of something brilliant.

"This is a film about a legendary New Zealander, Bruce McLaren, made by a legendary honorary New Zealander, Roger Donaldson," Sam Neill said. 

The actor spoke about his passion for cars, which led to him admitting his speeding ticket.

"God bless the New Zealand Police, they are keeping me in line," Neill said.

"It's never going to happen again."

Murphy says what McLaren started in the 1960s can still be seen today.
