The film is absolutely fantastic - GIANT kudos to the superbly talented Alexander Davidis and his amazing film crew - we all loved it.
The story line closely follows the three driver/navigator teams of Todd's race cars:
Richard & Simon in the Bag O'Nails ('65 Mustang)
Marc & Rupert in the Cliquot Chico ('64 Falcon)
Martin & Jon in the Gypsy Wind ('65 Mustang)
The film truly captures the spirit of LCP through the eyes of the competitors and crew. You can feel the adrenaline, the danger, the excitement, the fatigue, the joy, the fear, the beauty, the racing, the countryside, the people, MEXICO - all of it in the span of 50 minutes. Amazing to have the talent to capture that on film and absolutely exhausting to watch it.
