“A lot of people go through life doing things badly. Racing’s important to men who do it well. When you’re racing, it... it’s life. Anything that happens before or after... is just waiting.”
What more do you need to know about Steve McQueen’s seminal 1971 film? A box office flop on its release in America it has since become a cult hit amongst racing fans for its pitch perfect depiction of the existential nature of a professional racing driver’s life. Plus it is rammed full of Porsche 917s and Ferrari 512s racing in the 1970 edition of Le Mans. Perfect.
