The cars had to be fitted with spark plug radio noise suppression kits similar to the ones used on passenger cars because otherwise the static produced by their engine electrics interfered with the radio-controlled camera mounts on the cars. See more »
Prior to the start of the race at Monza, there is a flag ceremony at the starting line. The US flag has 48 stars instead of the 50 it should have had in 1966. See more »
Jordan says I was blocking Stoddard. Said I didn't give him a signal to pass.
Of course I did. The gear box froze coming out of the tunnel and I waved him through. Got on the brakes, locked up, and threw me in front of him. Next thing I knew, I was in the Mediterranean.
What are you going to do now?
I don't know. Gotta' get a ride for the rest of the season. I don't know where.

If you are a racing fan, then this movie is a must. The in-car camera shots are amazing, and put to shame the pictures we get today, from real races with modern technology. It serves as a great historical piece, with wonderful shots of the old Spa circuit and the oval banking at Monza. The effects are amazing. They somehow made it look like James Garner was actually driving the car, with another car buzzing behind him. The crash scenes are very spectacular. In terms of the story, it is OK, and improves greatly during the last race, where flashbacks are featured on each driver, and the suspense builds. It`s probably best seen on the biggest screen you can find.
