I really enjoyed this movie.
11 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

No, this is not LeMans, nor is it Grand Prix or the original Gumball Rally, but if you are a die-hard road racing fan, this is a great movie.

Sure, I read the prior remark - yes, it does have Garner doing Garner stuff - and that's what makes it a great show for those of us that chase road racing, and can identify with what Jim does in this movie. This takes us back to a time where yes, money was important, but unlike today, you could get by without a multi-million dollar budget, you could hang out with the race teams - they were just like us - and today you don't have that.

If you are looking for a slick Hollywood production loaded with stars, this isn't for you, but if you are looking for a great show that borders

on being a PBS documentary - you will love this show.

I'm trying to find a tape of this, I enjoyed it that much.
