Great aussie classic
27 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

I absolutley loved this flick! Fast paced, good script, great actors, good looking girls- what more could u want?! The setting for this film is great, the colourful world of the race track definitely provides a lot of scope to be explored and Kazanzidis definitely did this! From the sleazy old guys to the young, bitchy but beautiful girls, all characters that could be covered were! Thoroughly entertaining!
