We bring to the screen the spectacle that is Le Mans, through the eyes and emotions of the men at the very heart of it. Proving with enough hard work, dedication and passion, you really can achieve anything. Journey to Le Mans is a depiction of the blood, sweat and tears we see, as we travel with the team. Our journey playing out over the season to - and during - Le Mans 2014. Written by Fantelli Productions Ltd

Goofs

51 Minutes and 40 Seconds into the movie, it shows the 3 name stickers on the car. Which are Dolan, Tincknell and TURVEY. But, at that particular moment, it is Dolan, Tincknell and Gene who are driving. It's not until later in the movie that Turvey joins the team and replaces Gene who had to replace injured Duval at Audi. See more »

Not as interesting
24 January 2015 | by magmag8See all my reviews

This looks like a movie paid by the team itself. Not for petrol heads, as it fails to show the interesting aspects of motor sport, which usually doesn't happen on the racetrack. Eg: a huge crash destroys the car 2 weeks before a big race. 30 seconds explanation of "how we got our s**t back together and rebuilt the car"...well, that's quite an accomplishment to dig deeper in, no? why skipping?

Also: - plenty of scenes are repeated. Cheap way of filling time? Don't show me driver #1 entering a corner, overtaking that blue car, then going in the pits to change the driver, then to see driver #2 overtake the same car in the same spot. If you used the same shot twice in 3 minutes i will notice and get annoyed. Then I write a review about the movie because you're wasting my time and i'm bitter. - the music chosen sounds like it was bought at Walmart (or Lidl in Europe). If you want to make a serious movie you can't cheap out on this.

These aspects really ruin a movie which I was looking forward to see, and will ruin to you too.
