About GODS OF SPEED

In the 60s and early 70s it was common for Grand Prix drivers to be killed racing, often televised for millions to see. After much waste of life, the prestigious Belgian and German Grand Prix would be boycotted, drivers insisting that safety be put first. But it would be a long and painful time before their voices were heard. And a lot of talented young people would be cut down in their prime... Featuring many famous drivers including three times world champion Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, this documentary from the Grierson nominated team at Bigger Picture Films tells the story of how Grand Prix drivers rebelled, to be no longer at the mercy of track and car design failure.
