Been to see this with the old man (he's 72, and a MASSIVE GT40 FAN) :D
Great film, well shot , great cars, good actors, and a good representation of the history, (a few errors but hey that's Hollywood for ya!)

Anyway, wont spoil it for ya here, (you should all know the history/story)
But glaring error in the opening few minutes of the film :shock: with a Castro coloured Innocenti mini with MK3 doors!!!!!
This is supposed to be early 60's :lol: Details, Details, ...... :roll:

Anyway I dare say there are more errors in the film but.....
go and enjoy
I did

Prof .

We moved to Inglewood California from Wisconsin in 1965 and lived three miles east of the West Imperial Terminal where Shelby was located.

It was totally amazing to to drive by Shelby's place on the way to the beach to go surfing. There were Cobras, GT350's and GT40's parked outside,

lined up in rows. My mother would pull over so I could get a better view. Really cool for a 14 year old! I also remember riding my bicycle there but you

weren't allowed in because it was airport property.

Ford vs Ferrari vs Marcos
"Is there any place in the movie for a tiny little 1289cc Mini Marcos that found its way into the real race back in '66? I haven't seen it yet, but I don't think so. But you and I know that this little racer, run by a miniature team of enthusiasts became the darling of the crowds, was nicknamed 'La Puce Bleu' and came home at an incredible 15th overall in between these monsters of power, speed and fortune."

Of course It made sense to see british cars at Miles´garage in the movie like de Mini in the background, but i was a litlle bit suprised with the fiat 500 and the multipla they also put in the background of the garage, not british neither perfomance cars. I enjoyed the movie a lot. very good combination of racing action scenes with good acting and story, much as the movie Rush.
