            Saw it last night on IMAX screen great race movie. Good story and a lot of really good race scenes. 👍👍👍👍

            FYI Netflix documentary “24hr War” is very good also.

                  I’m a big Shelby fan and Corvette fan. The movie was great and not a lot of Hollywood stuff. Ken Miles actually got killed testing Ford’s new GT design called the J car. After his death they scraped the J car and the GT 40 Mark IV went on to win the next race. As a matter of fact when LeMans banned the 427 The Ford GT 40 with the small block went on to win 2 more times. Just a remarkable design .I’m sure Hollywood had no way to duplicate the J car but it was one ugly duckling. See picture.

                    What was the reasoning to ban the ford 427?

                    total dominance?

                        Ferrari had some pull and got it banned.

                          Great movie! Not too Hollyweirded out. I wish it would have been made when Shelby was alive and had oversight. On jay Leno's show, Damon said they did not use CGI on the race scenes. They were great. My wife said it made her too tense, HaHaHa.

                            A number of people that know I have the Vettes are highly recommending this movie and have said it was really well done with a good story. Not something my wife will go to the movies for, but I'll definitely check it out once it is released post theatres.

                              My wife isn’t into cars like I am but she loved the movie and understood how I’m hooked. Plus she goes to the 24 hour Daytona with me. So the scene with the Daytona race helped her understand the whole Shelby thing. Finally after 46 years and many Shelby cars in the past. My first 66 Shelby GT 350 back in 1979. I’ve owned as many Shelby’s as Corvettes. 50/50.
