"The Racing Scene" 1970 James Garner F5000
A short clip that starts with a Formula A race at Lime Rock, CT in
September 1969. Due to a break down during qualifying, Scooter Patrick must
start his Surtees TS5 at the end of the pack. Enjoy!
It's the real stuff, photographed at real races, and you go racing with
James Garner . . , star of "Grand Prix." But, this time it's for real, he
owns the cars and takes you behind the scenes at Sebring, Daytona,
Limerock, St. Jovite and even some of his off road racing in Baja, Mexico
in his Bad Bronco. Some of Jim's playmates are Parnelli Jones, John
Surtees, Roger Penske, Mario Andretti, Sam Posey, Scooter Patrick, Pat
Fahey, Dick Smothers, Dave Jordan, Ed Leslie, Lothar Motschenbacher, Bob
Bondurant, Larry Berquist, Fred Baker, Dick Simon, Bill Brack, Chuck
Trowbridge, Rex Ramsey, Ronnie Bucknum, Bob Brown, Mike Hiss, Chuck
Dietrich, Robert Fischetti, Max Kelly, Peter Rehl, John Mahler, Rich
Galloway and hundreds more. You will see the real blood, sweat and tears,
like Jim said, "Why couldn't it be like "Grand Prix", when you do it for
real, it ain't like the movies!" Producer Barry Scholer and director Andy
Sidaris filmed for nine months. John Srevens devised a tiny camera the size
of a grapefruit that recorded action that will make your hair Stand on end!
Made from 16mm, the film has a few scratches, but this is one you won't
want to miss. James Garner, we can't thank you enough!
