Kid Harmon is a fine young man and talented car racer, but when his competitor Kyle Ludwig, who gets almost unlimited funds from his uncle, Chicago gangster Carl Ludwig, hears his goons can't discourage the kid and his dad, Jack Harmon, he orders them to stop both physically. Once Kid is in hospital, his young wife Dana calls his uncle John, i.e. Hannibal Smith, who brings in the A-team. Face presents himself as the smart Western Hemisphere representative of an Italian first rate formula 1 sponsor, offering Kyle to buy himself in- the $1,000,000 is actually to replace Kids car trashed car. Then they make his goons blow up his own best car, and bring in Murdock as the Italian family's philandering heir Carlo, who only utters absurd Italian phrases. However uncle Jack, a wino who nearly lost his bride to Hannibal, and is fed up with his son admiring the Colonel, has called Decker and owes up a minute too late, so it's up to Murdock alone to save the day...
