Bathurst

Surfing on the crest of the wave created by that other great Australian racing filum (SideCar Racers!!) I would like to see someone try and capture the drama and excitement of the Bathurst 1000 (maybe pick a team and film everything)

Liable to be fascinating!!!

I just had an idea. A movie about Formula 1 racing all done with computer-generated animation. After all, all the crashes would be done by computer anyway, so why not go all out? No big actors to pay, no need for exclusive access to the paddock, because none of it is real.

All right, I've come to my senses. It would cost countless millions to make, perhaps bankrupt the motion picture and computer industries, and possibly be a massive flop. However, it could also be a breakthrough, a revelation. It could set the standard for everything that would be made after it. It could be legendary. It could leave people breathless.

Yes I have seen The Quick and the Dead, or otherwise known as Champions Forever. The thing is that it is a documentary film, not a fiction based script. In fact I like it so much I recorded it! Does anybody have the directors cut version they advertised on TV?

It'd suck, Fish. That's what we complain about with Drivel.

Sorry.

Actually, I'd think you could make one about rallying. Try to show what it's really like going flat-out on a dirt road with a mountain on the right, and _nothing_ on the left, with only one chance to get it right, and a co-driver screaming instructions and the occaisonal vulgarity in your ear.

I would think that a documentary of a race season that illustrates the long hours put in by the driver and team and tons of in race footage, would excite me a lot more than any made up story that is invariably written by someone who does not even drive a car.

Searched it from net, It's Red Line 7000 from 1965, correct, but no Carradine but James Caan. I saw this movie some over 20 years ago, when I was some 7 or 8, but never since.
Actually there's 'racing' movie with David Carradine as lead role; Death Race 2000.

There is a great Australian movie from the early 80's called "Smash Palace" (great title, btw). It's not so much about racing but the main character owns a junk yard (named Smash Palace) and he was a club or semi-pro road racer. Not enough race scenes but a good movie and the scenes that were are authentic.

Death Race 2000. Complete and utter bullhooks.

Not a race movie I know but for me one of the best "chase" sequences has to be in Mad Max 2 when the outlaws are after Max in the rig. Sheer violence.
