Movie Summary

1966
Rating:
Not Available

Grand Prix is a spectacular 1966 film about the killer sport of motor-racing. It follows the personal and professional adventures of four drivers throughout a season of Formula One. Scott Stoddard, an English driver, is badly injured at Monte Carlo. Pete Aron, an American driver (and the one who ran Stoddard off the track), begins an affair with Stoddard's estranged wife. Jean-Pierre Sarti, the legendary French champion, also begins an affair (despite the presence of his unloving wife), simultaneously becoming all too aware that he is becoming fatally tired of the sport and of his life in the public eye. An Italian driver, Nino Barlini, is a headstrong, reckless young upstart, new to Formula One but determined to outdo the other three. Grand Prix is directed by John Frankenheimer, a keen motor-racer himself, albeit at a rather less elevated level.
