Solid documentary-even if you are not that into auto racing. Interesting after watching Ford vs Ferrari which covers some of the same territory.
Love the material.. the music is mixed WAY too loud
Saw the Ford vs. Ferrari movie, visited the Shelby Museum in Boulder CO, and still wanted more. But the mix on the soundtrack is so bad. I mean.. SO bad. Come on guys. You can do better.
