Winning: The Racing Life
of Paul Newman
(documentary)

The world knows Paul Newman as an Academy Award-winning actor with a 50-plus year career as one of the most prolific and revered actors in American Cinema. He was also well known for his philanthropy; Newman's Own has given more than $430 million to charities around the world.

Yet few know the gasoline-fueled passion that became so important in this complex, multifaceted man's makeup. Newman's deep- seated passion for racing was so intense it nearly sidelined his acting career.

His racing career spanned 35 years; Newman won four national championships as a driver and eight championships as an owner. Not bad for a guy who didn't even start racing until he was 47 years old.

Includes Special Features: Adam Carolla interviews with Mario Andretti, Patrick Dempsey, Jay Leno, Graham Rahal, and Bob Sharp; Adam Carolla restores Paul Newman's 1985 GT-1 Championship Car/Trailer.

Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans (documentary)

By 1970, Steve McQueen ruled Hollywood. He was the King of Cool and the world’s most notorious ladies’ man. Hot off the back of classics like “The Thomas Crown Affair” and “Bullitt,” the racing fanatic began production of his passion project, “Le Mans,” centered on the 24-hour car race in France.

But the infamously troubled production was plagued with financial troubles, on-set rivalries and the star’s own personal issues. This documentary film interweaves stunning, newly discovered footage and McQueen’s private recordings with original interviews to reveal the true story of how this cinema legend would risk everything in pursuit of his dream.

Official Selection of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

This DVD edition includes additional interviews with Steve McQueen's friends, family and colleagues and an exclusive interview with three-time Le Mans Winner, Allan McNish.

The Winning Combination - Indy 1966

Each May, the gates to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway are opened and from the first day of practice, the search for the winning combination begins. Crews spend hours tweaking their cars to get the speed their driver will need to qualify for the 500.
For some teams, just qualifying for the race is their winning combination but for others, only the pole position will do.

The ultimate winning combination in 1965 went to the Lotus team of Colin Chapman and their driver, two-time Formula One Champion, Jim Clark. Clark’s winning combination was a rear-engine Lotus 38 powered by a Ford. This was the first rear-engine car to win the 500. His record average speed of 150.686 MPH would have sat on the pole just two years prior.

What would the winning combination of driver and machine be to win it all in 1966? Find out in "The Winning Combination -1966."

Formula One 1976: Hunt for the Title

A review of the 1976 Formula 1 season, the year when Britain's James Hunt, in the McLaren, amazingly clinched the Formula One Drivers Championship during the final Grand Prix of the season in Japan.

The reigning Champion, Niki Lauda in the Ferrari, started the 1976 season as the favorite for the Championship. His nearest rival, Emerson Fittipaldi, made the patriotic switch from McLaren to the Brazilian-funded Copersucar team. This left a hole at McLaren. It was filled by the ambitious British hopeful with the playboy image, James Hunt, to set the scene for a dramatic season of racing.

Tyrrell stole the limelight early on in the season, not for their results, but through the unveiling of their revolutionary six-wheeled P34 - it certainly was a unique sight to F1 fans. Hunt quickly adapted to life at McLaren and, unfazed by Lauda's early dominance, continued to pick up valuable points and podium finishes.

The 1976 season however will probably be best remembered for Niki Lauda's horrific accident at the Nurburgring that nearly ended his life and saw him rushed to hospital with major burns. His resilience and dedication to racing saw him make a remarkable recovery, returning six weeks later to ensure a thrilling climax to a season that ended with only one point separating 1st and 2nd place in the championship. Again it was the last eventful race in the rain in Japan that decided the title.

Brunswick Films were pioneers in the embryonic days of Formula One production, when sponsors controlled the demand for footage, and before the era of global TV coverage began. They have skillfully combined film from their famous archive – including some previously unseen material – to create a review that captures the essence of a very special era in Grand Prix racing.

Can Am Thunder:
the Mighty Machines of the Series


The mighty machines of the Can-Am Championship must surely be leading candidates for the title of 'most awesome racing cars ever built'...
Some forty years ago they put out over 1000 horsepower in their most-developed form and hit speeds of up to 220 mph despite aerodynamics that were experimental at best and highly dangerous at worst! They made the Grand Prix F1 cars of the day look tame by comparison.

And even today, the 'Can-Am thunder' still rumbles as huge crowds flock to historic race meetings wherever these incredible cars appear.

Porsche, McLaren, Lola and Shadow were the Championship-winning cars, with Chaparral, Bryant Ti22, March, BRM and Ferrari as the challengers. This DVD focuses in depth upon all of these as they rumble and roar around tracks like Laguna Seca with its legendary downhill 'corkscrew' turn. We even recall the days of the 'Interserie' – Europe's Can-Am equivalent – by filming at the Nurburgring round of the current Orwell Supersports Cup series for historic Can-Am cars.

In making this up-close examination of the mighty machines of the Can-Am, the filmmakers use a great combination of modern action footage, rare archival film and almost 100 superb pictures from the best photographers of the day. Included are reminiscences from the three Can-Am champions still with us – John Surtees, George Follmer and Jackie Oliver – as well as from Jim Hall, the designer of the incredible Chaparral 'fan car,' and its driver, Vic Elford.

Hurley Haywood tells us what it was like to wrestle with the mighty turbocharged Porsche 917/10 in the heat of Can-Am competition. He is one of the world's best-ever sports car drivers with three wins in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, five in the Daytona 24 Hours and two in the Sebring 12 Hours to his credit. Peter Bryant, creator of the successful Bryant Ti22 and Shadow Mk2 cars, recalls what it was like trying to design a 220 mph racer without the aid of computers or wind tunnels.

All of this is woven into reminiscences by the world's acknowledged 'number one' Can-Am guru. Author and photographer, Pete Lyons recalls the stories that led to his best-selling books on the series and delves into his photo archives to take us back to the Can-Am era. In this he is joined by another award-winning author and photographer focusing on those awesome days, Dave Friedman.

This is the definitive documentary on the cars of the Can-Am has never been made. This is it!

Along with A.J. Foyt, they are the Mount Rushmore of American motorsports, and their accomplishments will never be duplicated.…They thrived and survived in racing’s deadliest era and became household names that people still say with awe.”

The Roadster’s Last Triumph
– Indianapolis 1964


In 1961, Australian Grand Prix driver Sir Jack Brabham brought a light-weight rear engine F1 Cooper-Climax car to the Speedway. Although down on horsepower compared to the Offy- powered roadsters, Brabham used the superior corner handling of the Cooper to finish a respectable 9th place in the 500 and in the process, usher in the modern rear-engine era.
With the door open, several teams developed rear-engine cars, with the most notable being the Colin Chapman-designed Ford-powered Lotus 29s of 1963 driven by Dan Gurney and Jim Clark.

Clark would qualify 5th and in the race he moved up in the field to become the first rear-engine car to lead the 500, and even though he would finish 2nd to Parnelli Jones, the rear-engine car could no longer be ignored. The rear-engine car has returned with a vengeance in 1964 and the question had to be: Had the roadster gone the way of the dinosaur, or would this be its last triumph?

500 Italian Style – Indianapolis 1969

When 1969 arrived, Mario Andretti had already established himself as a driver to beat. However, bad luck followed him at the Speedway year after year. He was always among the fastest drivers during practice and qualified on the pole twice, but on race day, mechanical failures would put him out early.

Andy Granatelli also did not fair well at the Speedway, despite earlier success with Jim Rathmann and Freddie Agabashian. Always on the cutting edge of technology, he revived the Novi in the early 1960s and developed the turbine-powered cars that ran in 1967 and 1968. While leading in 1967, bad luck struck when his turbine-powered car driven by 1963 winner Parnelli Jones broke down with just three laps to the checkered flag. Andy teamed up with famed Lotus designer Colin Chapman for 1968 and the result was the wedge shaped Lotus 56 that incorporated Andy's turbine. Three turbines made the race, with Joe Leonard grabbing the pole with a record speed of 171.559. Again, Andy was denied victory when Leonard's car flamed out with nine laps to go while leading.

In 1969, the Italians hoped to cancel out each other’s bad luck by teaming up for the 500 mile race. Mario was turning in the fastest speeds of the month in the new Lotus 64 when disaster struck. A rear wheel hub broke while Mario was on a practice run sending the car in to the wall. Mario escaped with minor burns, but the car was destroyed, as were the hopes of a pole position. With only two days before qualifying, the team scrambled and got the back-up Brawner-Hawk III ready for qualifying. Mario got the old car in the middle of the front row between A.J. Foyt on the pole and Bobby Unser on the outside. Despite the good qualifying effort, many had doubts as to the car’s reliability and its chances of winning the race. Though there were strong challenges from Foyt and Lloyd Ruby, Mario and Andy were not to be denied as they went on to win the 1969 500. Mario even received a kiss from Andy in victory lane, truly making the 1969 win 500 "Italian Style".

Dawn of the Rear Engine Era:
(Indianapolis) 1965


Jim Clark came to the Speedway in 1963 with Colin Chapman and the Lotus, looking to end the front-engine era of Indianapolis winners. He came close, finishing second to Parnelli Jones, who was driving a conventional front-engine roadster.

Clark returned in 1964 with Chapman and the Lotus to qualify on the pole. However, his suspension collapsed while leading the race, and A.J. Foyt went on to win in his roadster.

In 1965, Clark and Chapman came back with the brand new Lotus 38. This time, Clark hoped to drive the final nail in the front-engine coffin, ending its winning reign at Indianapolis. Clark qualified in the middle of the front row and dominated the race, becoming the first driver to win in a rear-engine Indy Car. No front-engine car has won the Indy 500 since.

With the elite field of 33 decided, all that was left to do was to run the race itself.
