  2. There was a programme on BBC4 last night about the heyday of British GP racing, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart etc. Unfortunately, not available on iPlayer :-(

  3. Really looking forward to this, though it has been getting a little bit of a slagging in some of the Motorsport circles (Even though it has not even been released yet). Mainly because i think it is being produced with American money and they're worried about it being glamorised for something that it wasn't.
    I am a massive Hunt fan so it is a win for me, just wondering whether they will have anything about his time with Hesketh in there?????
  4. It'll be more of a hit here in Europe that in the US, I reckon.
  5. To complex for them, all those bends and stuff.

    its pretty much about the 76 season afaik, so...probs not.
  7. Never nodded off watching F1 in the 70's. It's a bit dull now.

  8. The Americans have a good track record (intended) in this field with the excellent 1966 John Frankenheimer film Grand Prix. If anyone is unfamiliar with it you are in for a treat.

  10. Yeah, awesome soundtrack. IIRC the actors in Grand Prix were filmed driving proper racing cars - not F1 but close - on the real circuits on the day of the actual GP: everything looked real because, as near as dammit, it was.
  11. Are Morecombe and Wise in it ????
  12. Which?
  13. An excellent film, Racing as it should be.
    Here's a wee bit of porn from way back when...
  14. Now your talking but "Rush" looks like it might also be up there. That 1976 season was extraordinary and not even Hollywood could have scripted the finish. I shall be looking forward to this.
