    Default Journey to Lemans

    Journey to Lemans is on netflix. It is a pretty good race documentary.

    I'll have to check that out.

    On another note, I finally watched "World's Fastest Indian," on Netflix last night. Anthony Hopkins plays New Zealander Burt Munro, who preps a bike and fulfills his dream of running it at Bonneville. Based on a true story, it was a lot better than I thought it would be and gear heads and speed freaks will enjoy it.

    That is a fantastic film, though your synopsis, while technically accurate, would be the equivalent of summarizing Moby Dick as "Man tries to catch a fish". I love Hopkins portrayal of Munroe and the personal-safety-be-damned attitude of the pioneers anywhere. Growing up around so-cal car culture it paints a pretty good picture of the early pioneer land speed racers who had far more in common with test pilots than drivers.


    Journey to Lemans might get watched tonight.
