This movie has Joe playing Joe Massi, one of the best sports car racers around. Him and his ex-mentor/driver instuctor named Stark, are both vying for a first place finish at the SAFARI RALLY which is coming up soon. Joe also happens to have an affair with Stark's wife, and 2 weeks before the big race Stark runs Joe off the road badly injuring him. Joe escapes with his life and lives to race in the rally. The movie doesn't really stay on any plot or sub-plots going on in the movie, I mean it only touches on them slightly. The movie was supposed to be about a race. Another example is the strange rivalry going on between Stark and Joe that never fully gets explained, or the relationship between Stark's wife and Joe. Nonetheless This movie was pretty interesting, and had it's funny moments besides the funny dubbing job. Lots of footage of the racing cars and Africans getting shoved around by cops, also cars driving through these cool trails, with stampeding live animals like elephants and stuff crossing their paths during the race, and at one point in the end one of the cars carrying Stark and his wife runs into a spectator and Well I won't tell you the rest. Oh and something about some of the racing footage leads me to suspect that it was stock footage of another REAL Rally. >
