Top Gear Interview: Christian Bale and Matt Damon on Le Mans '66:-

(Apparently for Mini 'anoraks' there is a timeline error to spot in the opening few minutes of the film which features an Innocenti Mini with Mk3 doors).

Great film, I watched it with my wife who also enjoyed it, and yes I did spot the Mini error.

Ford vs Ferrari vs Marcos

"Is there any place in the movie for a tiny little 1289cc Mini Marcos that found its way into the real race back in '66? I haven't seen it yet, but I don't think so. But you and I know that this little racer, run by a miniature team of enthusiasts became the darling of the crowds, was nicknamed 'La Puce Bleu' and came home at an incredible 15th overall in between these monsters of power, speed and fortune."

My family came grudgingly to see the film with me, but really enjoyed it. The racing sequences were superb.

Looking forward to seeing it.  

 

Had a MOT tester years ago who worked at the factory in Slough, had some great stories about the cars.

I aim to see the film and have heard it is very good. I do have the book on which it is based - 'Drive Like Hell'. It is a great read.

Great film and my wife also enjoyed it. Made me regret getting rid of my SR cobra - but if I hadn't I wouldn't now have the mini!

GREAT Movie !!

 

I found it a great story (though, I'd love to read to book to get all of that) and it was wonderfully put together in this Movie. There could always be 'more' but then, you'd need 1/2 a life time to see it. None the less, it's well captured.
