Ferrari: Race To Immortality

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The late nineteen fifties were known as golden years in the world of motor racing, champions were made and lost on a Sunday, and no losses were greater than those of Enzo Ferrari’s Scuderia.
A towering figure in motor racing, Ferrari’s reputation went before him, yet when he spoke of himself he simply said “I am an agitator of men”.
British racing heroes, Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins were fearless young drivers who eagerly joined the other glamorous playboy drivers who pushed themselves to the limit to satisfy Ferrari’s appetite for glory. Peter and Mike were highly competitive on the track but their bond was so unshakable they often felt compelled to let the other win.
Based on Chris Nixon’s bestselling biography 'Mon Ami Mate' this film tells the story of the loves and losses, triumphs and tragedy of a turbulent era that shook the motor racing world.
