I rather enjoyed Le Mans on DVD. I'm not familair with those cars so i don't know if the sound was realiastic, but they sounded pretty good with the TV plugged into the stereo speakers and plenty of bass.

The plot was so sparse that it was hard to follow, either flesh it out or get rid of it. The love interest was just plian pointless.

Only grievance with on track scenes, the Ferraris must be American, a major crash and they explode into a massive fireball.

It was good for a change to see the hero not come through impossible odds and win at the last moment.

I believe the Ferrari's were actually Lolarri's.
Rather kill a Lola rather than a Ferrari. Still have to get that one on DVD. The only one I have found so far is in french with English subtitles. Unfortunately my french has slid into oblivion since graduation, and I hate reading movies.

My LeMans DVD appears to be a recent release. It's made in Australia and distributed by Paramount (Australasia). CBS & Paramount logoes appear on the back, you could try their Canadian arm or the American parent company. The film itself was made by cinema Center Films. Hope this helps.

jj2728 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
for me there's only 2 racing movies to consider:
GRAND PRIX & LEMANS
maybe i'm a bit biased, but i first saw GP when it was released in 1967 just a short while before i attended with the family my first ever race, the 67 USGP at the glen...yes it's dated, and the romantic bits slow it down, but what else were they going to do between races?....and i think that the actual footage from SPA is superb....
i just picked up a brand new copy of LM on vhs and still think it's a stunner....the racing footage, especially at the start is fantastic stuff.....
as far as i am concerned these are the only 2 decent race flicks....there is one more that noone has mentioned even though it is a love story more than anything else, BOBBY DEERFIELD....saw it ages ago...al pacino is, i believe, a brabham f1 driver....

Not strictly racing but "The Gumball Rally" was quite an entertaining film and had some good humorous bits.

I think the best way to go is for a documentary. They tend to follow the facts and show more of what I'm interested in. Documentaries are also a good way to learn things about the sport that I did not previously know. A movie about racing will always be less than the real thing and not a true representation. It's too easy to notice the shortcomings and inaccuracies, which detracts from the film experience. Better yet, why not go and see a race in person??

I don't know if this is a good movie, but there is a new movie (based on a book) coming out called The Art of Racing in the Rain. Trailer can be seen here:

C'était un rendez-vous

For me, by far and away the best is 'C'était un rendez-vous' which is a 1976 French short film directed by Claude Lelouch. You can easily find it on the internet & it's available as a DVD. If the hairs on the back of your neck don't go up you must be dead
