    FYI Netflix documentary “24hr War” is very good also.
    Yes! Thanks for the rec. Just did that one also. Provided some more details. Very cool stories. Looking up the various car types that were overall Le Mans winners 1970 going forward. I really like the cars from the 1960's the most.

      I was a youngster back 1966 at 14 and I was taken to Sebring 12 hr races 1966,67,68,69,70 those were some fantastic times for sports car racing and the master class drivers I witnessed were astounding. The movie took me right back to those glory days. Those were the days......

        Saw Ford vs. Ferrari this weekend. Excellent movie. Possibly a better movie than Rush, but Rush was a better racing movie. Well worth seeing, though. And a great reminder of how much things have changed. Drivers drove those cars. No traction control, no ABS, no electronics, no DCTs or sequential shift transmissions. Watching all the cuts of drivers actually using the pedals and slamming home the shifter reminded me of how much I'm going to miss a manual transmission when I get a C8.

          I agree - Ford vs Ferrari was a very fun movie, definitely worth seeing.

          It was nice to better understand the history (to the extent the movie is historically accurate) of Ford's involvement in racing, particularly at Le Mans.

          I was also caught by surprise at the ending, as I didn't see that coming with McLaren (i.e., I should know my racing history better).

            I enjoyed the part where Shelby took Mr. Ford out for a hot lap.

                That was a good one. I wonder if it really happened. Knowing a little about Shelby, I could imagine it did happen, and he would have wanted it to be that way.

                  Heck, at that price I'm going to have to look for a copy.
