Did You Know?

Goofs

In the real Mille Miglia, the cars were numbered with three-digit numbers across their hoods, representing the times they started the race. In some of the film's Mille Miglia sequences the cars are numbered correctly, but in others they have different two-digit black numbers in white circles on the sides and back, the way cars would be numbered in a closed-track race instead of an open-road race like the Mille Miglia.

Enjoyable enough
22 August 2003 | by (Melbourne , Australia) – See all my reviews

Reasonably entertaining British film.

Follows the ups and downs of a fading champion race car driver and his antagonistic relationship with his younger brother who wants to take over the wheel.

Includes some solid racing footage from Sebring, Goodwood and various European tracks. Sid James portrayal of an Australian is a bit shaky (count the number of times he says "sport" .. it seems to be in every second sentence).

Special guest appearance by real life Australian world champ Jack Brabham adds a touch of nostalgic interest.

Not exceptional but enjoyable enough.
