A wealth of archive footage brings this documentary to life.
18 May 2018 | by garethcrookSee all my reviews

A wealth of archive footage brings this documentary to life. The excitement of motor racing roaring from the screen. It's primal, simple, honest and very informative. Packed with all the charm of the era, Sixties swing and pure engineering dedicated to power with little thought for safety. It's lovingly put together and worth watching for the 1967 Can-Am race at Mossport alone. The highs were phenomenal. The lows, crushing. Bruce McLarens story is quite something and this really does it justice.
