The original title is "Poliziotto Sprint" which I think is "Policeman's Run" in English but given the title "Highway Racer". This unknown flick is a cool little gem for car chase fanatics. Many interesting stunts and action scenes including some very wild shots.
A man who wants to become the ultimate driver of his police force fails horribly until he's given driving lessons by his chief. He then goes out to stop the chief's ex-rival bank robber. A little like National Velvet set with Ferrari's and Citroens.
The characters and acting is mediocre but the chases and action sequences are superb. One scene is guaranteed to shock some viewers near the end but I won't dwell on.
Never ending car chases and stunts are packed in this rare film. Find it while you can.
