A Man and a Woman - The Best Racing Action Movie in Disguise

Claude Lelouch's highly acclaimed "Un Homme et une Femme" from 1966 tells the story of (watch this space) a man and a woman falling in love. A romantic film that would be the best movie on racing ever if it was an action flick. » 6/08/14 12:29pm 6/08/14 12:29pm

When Sports Cars Ran Rally

It's easy to forget the glorious rear-engined Alpine A110, something like a French cross between a Porsche and a Lotus. You might think it's too low, to pretty for rallying, but this 1971 film for the Rallye Monte Carlo might change your mind. » 1/01/14 12:00pm 1/01/14 12:00pm

Monte Carlo Rally: Leg 2 Recap

Marcus Gr nholm never really had a chance. As the Citroen C4s piloted by Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Sordo swapped places several times through the first legs of the Monte Carlo Rally, the BP-Ford World Rally Team driver (and last year's Monte Carlo winner) languished between 36 seconds and just over 1:15 behind the… » 1/19/07 10:00pm 1/19/07 10:00pm
