A lost treasure for cult fans of race car films!!!
12 June 2000 | by (Los Angeles, Ca.) – See all my reviews

This is one film that has sadly fallen by the wayside. Roadracers has a lot of character. Wonderful acting by the good-looking Joel Lawrence and some really cool racing shots. Sure, the film can be a little quirky at times, but that's also what makes it so lovable. Cult fans of race car films will surely like this one, if they can get their hands on it.
