I'm just watching "Rush" - again - I'm huge fan of Howard's direction and this, in my opinion is head and shoulders above any other motor racing movie. I watched the Le Mans 66 and the Steve McQueen, Le Mans but they don't come close to what St Ron has achieved here. Ok I put it out there, shoot me down!

Can't shoot you down TTT - Rush is a superb film.
Some others you might like to consider:

Rush is fantastic. Not a movie, but the Ayrton Senna documentary, Senna is stunning.
Not strictly motor racing but a very underrated film
What did you think of Le Mans 66? It's meant to be great.

Mozz, LM66 is a great film very impressed with Bale and Damon but it doesn't have the Zing of Rush. No one gets the sheer brutal portrayal of speed like Mr H. Stunning.
"Ford v Ferrarri" Based on true rivalry between Ford and Ferrarri ending with the race at le Mans. Centers around Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles.

I bought the Rush DVD for him amd we watched it together. It had him, literally, on the edge of his seat. At the finish he sat back in his chair and declared it to have been the finest piece of sport film-making he had ever seen.

In fact, instead of watching his "......rotten old cowboy films" - my mother's considered opinion, he is more often than not to be found hurtling round the Nurburgring with Hunt and Lauda.
