A bit loose with the facts probably. Well, a lot loose with the facts probably. But it should be entertaining.

LOL, They already got the song wrong in the trailer being the GT-40 program began well before the song came on the radio waves, Still this is an incredible story in racing history,can't wait, hope they did their homework

I was a pit runner at the Daytona Continental (24 hrs) in 1967. Ferrari came in 1-2-3. All the factory Fords dropped out due to mechanical issues.

Beginning of race and the Ferraris that finished in top three places.



One of the Ferraris



Factory Fords. Driver is Bruce McLaren.





Private Ford entry finished 6th.

Thanks.

That private GT40 chassis 1049 #11 was restored a number of years ago by Racing Icons but I can’t find their website anymore. Here it is on another site.

https://www.conceptcarz.com/profile/...ford-gt40.aspx

I was in high school back in 67. Had a job as a pit runner but they hired too many kids. They let us keep our pit passes though so got to be in the pits with the cars. Ford allowed no one in their pits. Insane to think now of the access kids got back then. I also had lots of 8mm movies that have been lost unfortunately.

I remember the Ford dealer had a street GT40 in their showroom at the time for $14k and 289 Cobras for $5k. Of course my parents house cost less than $14k at the time.

Porsche



Jim Hall's Chaparral. Basically first winged car.



Private Ferrari GTB entry. Later model became known as Daytona.

A friend of mine has his car in this movie. It's an aluminum bodied Kirkham Cobra, 427 side oiler. It's got a few panels signed on the backside by Carroll Shelby. It's not fully together and they wanted it for some of the "shop" scenes. Pretty crazy how much they pay for "rent".

Those GT 40s are absolutely beautiful cars.

The buzz out of TIFF is pretty mixed for this movie.

You guys have seen Jame's May's segment on this on The Grand Tour, yes?


The historical bits are the best things they did, and their knowledge and passion shines through as well as great writing. I only hope the movie is half as good and doesn't try to distort history to make US look good at expense of other countries as most Hollywood films do.

Can't vouch for some of the details, e.g. Shelby's "test drive" with Henry Ford II, but the movie's absolutely a fun ride. 2 1/2 hours long, you might expect it to lag, but the time flew by (@ 200+ mph!). Recommended.

Just saw it today. See it on a large format screen with excellent (and loud) sound. The racing sequences are fantastic. Very sparse use of CGI, thank God. Acting is great from the two leads and really all around. I would have liked to see more of Ferrari's side of things, but that probably would have made the movie 3hrs long (no complaints here!).

Great flick. Go see it.

^^^^ Very cool! It never occurred to be that the film it at (much) slower than race speed. Makes sense, much easier to do/control things and much safer.

Even at slow speed that first stunt was kind of dangerous. And awesome. Who knew they had car cannons.

True, if you've ever seen a live camera feed from a car in a race on a big screen in real-time you can sense the tension. And that's just from the perspective from one car.

Considering the quality of movies coming out these days, this is truly a fun movie with some good acting. 2.5 hours flew by quick.

Saw it yesterday. I'm looking forward to Extras on BD. Some who haven't seen may want to save the following for later.

"The Stunts of Ford v Ferrari: Recreating the Racing Action of the 1966 Le Mans (W/Video)"
