Best through traffic race ever - Against All Odds.  I can't remember the stunt drivers names, but one guy was over 60 and the other was 18 or 19.  An amazing team.  They didn't wreck a car and it is about 8 minutes on film.  Precision driving like I've never seen - ok, the Driver was pretty good too, but this scene is much longer.  Anyone else remember it?  Rachel Ward ain't half bad to look at either.

The James Garner version of "Grand Prix" was great for the racing but I had a hard time with the new version where they interject interviews and show parts of "The Making Of" within the movie. Show that stuff at the end for those really interested.

The chase sequence in Bullet was very well done as it was in "The Seven-Ups" with Roy Scheider. This was not a very well known movie. Check it out and watch for the scene where a car tears off a parked car door at speed.

For fun "The Gumball Rally" is not a bad car movie as the scenes of the Ferrarri and AC Cobra racing are great.

Days of Thunder bored the hell out of me. Turn left, and again, again etc.

I won't be able to comment on "Driven" as I will not watch anything with that piece of wood, Sylvester Stallone.

The best fun car scenes have to be from the Blues Brothers.  They must have wrecked more cars than any other ten movies.

The DVD set of "Grand Prix" does have the extras in a seperate section at the end. Some of them are quite good.

the vhs version

Much better. WB did it right. Completely re-mastered the film. One of the extras is a very good documentery about F1 in the 60's.

Turner Classic Movies showed The Green Helmet last night.Made
in the early 60's it came off pretty good and it even had a
cameo by Jack Brabham.

You catch it Cos

That I did, Dare, and thanks again for cluing me in that it would be on. Did it look to you like most of the "Sebring" shots were actually Silverstone?

Was the main car they were using a Lister-Jag? I thought so, any way.

It did Cos.Green Helmet proved another point like
G Hill in Grand Prix.Great race drivers like Brabham
usually make  horrible actors

I bet Cos can answer this.In the start of Grand Prix
when the driver in the red helmet is putting on his
goggles with the sound of the heartbeat,who is
the driver in the red helmet?

And another question,do you know why  Lotus
wasn't one of the featured teams in the movie and
why Jim Clark wasn't one of the drivers hired for the film

I think the driver you mean is Mike Spence. You can see him a few moments before that in asix-way shot during the opening of the film. He was driving a Lotus 25 witha BRM engine that day. Sadly, Spence was killed at Indy two years later testing a Lotus 56 Turbine car.

I don't know why they didn't use Clark or Lotus. I've always wondered about that myself.
