Elevator Pitch When a young very talented driver begins to lose focus in a world championship a retired ace is called out of retirement to help. And as the drivers and their entourage travel round the world sparks fly both on and off the track.
Content There are a lot of races and scenes in nightclubs before the events, and many spectacular crashes, although none quite as spectacular as the one in the 2017 Indy 500. Plus some interaction between the drivers and their groupies off the circuit. No nudity or sex, but quite a lot of pit babes.
A View This was presented more like Death Race 2000 than a serious motor racing film. Even a wheel falling into the crowd did not seem to stop the race. Nothing could save this, although I thought that Gina Gershon tried. Even if you like motor racing it is not for you. A definitely don’t watch.
