Interesting but.....
14 March 2020 | by pathfinder-92326See all my reviews

As a motor racing fan I was glad to have watched this and my score reflects the work of the documentary makers who I thought did a good job.However the driver Tommy Byrne is the sort of person that I would run a mile from. Not an easy watch because he comes across as so bitter and twisted.
