Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

James Bond director John Glen is the man behind the camera for this Days of Thunder-style tale about rivalry on the motor-racing circuit. It was the action-packed pilot for a TV series that never happened, probably because there are only so many interesting stories you can create around a pair of arrogant drivers (William Campbell and Robert Estes), some grease monkeys and the racing groupies who hang around the track.
