Talented rookie race-car driver Jimmy Bly has started losing his focus and begins to slip in the race rankings. It's no wonder, with the immense pressure being shoveled on him by his overly ambitious promoter brother as well as Bly's romance with his arch rival's girlfriend Sophia. With much riding on Bly, car owner Carl Henry brings former racing star Joe Tanto on board to help Bly. To drive Bly back to the top of the rankings, Tanto must first deal with the emotional scars left over from a tragic racing accident which nearly took his life. Written by Anna <dimenxia@yahoo.com>

Did You Know?


Some of the sounds are not of CART Champ Cars, but rather of Formula One cars. The movie was originally supposed to be about Formula One racing, but due to restrictions imposed on the production crew, the producers had to look elsewhere. See more »


Some of the racetracks are clearly doubling as others on the tour, and even when the correct location is used there are often obvious hints that some shots were taken elsewhere. Some shots of "Tokyo", for instance, are very obviously of Chicago and Toronto, and yellow cabs can be seen in Germany where taxis tend to be eggshell colored. See more »

Worst race movie ever... or simply worst movie ever?
3 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to write a review about something so horrible in every single aspect: acting, scripting and, above all, the representation of Indycar races... I guess if at least one in the entire troupe has ever watched a real race in his life! Stupid and unrealistic things keep happening all the time, without logic or respect for the intelligence of the unlucky spectator. I'm not spending any more time reviewing this movie, I only hope that no one wants to see it after these lines. I'm a huge race fan and this movies is insulting and a true shame... Arghh! I've been DRIVEN mad! Not yet ten lines! This movie sucks... really sucks! I got it!
