It seems as if it has taken forever for Hollywood to discover what motorsports fans have known for years: motor racing is exciting and the people in the scene are genuine characters. The Ron Howard film Rush was a groundbreaking film, and it has paved the way for other racing related flicks. There is a movie about the WRC in the works and I just came across this bio-pic about legendary motorcycle racer Barry Sheene.
I don’t know too much about Sheene, but that isn’t the point here. The point is, bring on the racing movies!
