'The Making of Grand Prix' DVD required?

Pre-order in USA at $5.86 from
ULN

Pre-order in UK from Blackstar at £4.99 including free delivery.
The Making of Grand Prix
Advertised release date is the same - 13th Oct 2003

Belfast based Black Star are Brilliant!
They will even do a long term search for DELETED Videos.
A HIGHLY recommended source based on direct, personal experience.
They just don't come any better than these guys for price, FAST delivery and service in general. Occasionally a pre-ordered title will arrive through the letterbox a day or so BEFORE it has been officially released!

Looks good, certainly wouldn't mind watching.

The only thing, with these kinds of documentaries is, I would prefer to watch it after seeing the film again - haven't watched it in years.

Is it me or did James Garner race with Chris Amon's helmet colours?

Also the British driver who has the huge crash at Monaco - was his character based on anyone? Someone told me he was???

Brilliant film, the closing sequence for me is very cool, the deserted track... class.

Loosely Jim Clark. The team he drives for is an amalgam of BRM and Lotus. most of the characters in the film aren't that closely based on real drivers, with one exception. John Surtees sued (succesfully) for libel (or defamation) over the character "Jean-Paul Sarti"

Rich, Tell me more about Surtees suing. Not sure I see the link. Sarti was French, no mention that he was a bike racer and he dies in the end.
