RUSH - Movie

Written by Jay Walker on 04 July 2013. Posted in P34 News

rush-posterWe reported on this Movie when it was still being fillmed last year, if you havent already seen our exclusive pictures of two P34's on set then be sure to do so, you can check them out in the picture gallery, we also have a few more exclusive pictures in the forum.

The film takes place in the world of Formula One racing during the 1970's and focuses on the rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and British driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) in the fight for the 1976 Drivers Championship.

As we all know this was the year the Tyrrell P34 Six wheeled car made its remakable apperance in the world of formula one. Whilst not the main focus of the film, we know that the director used two real P34's and some mockups when making the film so we know the P34's are going to be right in the thick of the on screen action. Lets hope they cover the Swiss Grand Prix at Anderstorp where the P34's finished 1st and 2nd.

The footage on the trailer and the offical movie website looks fantastic, dramtic, up close and personal, I for one cant wait to see the film.

At the moment the film has been slated for a September release....so we have a few months to wait before we can see just how much on screen action the P34's get.

Aside from our faverate F1 car making a Hollywood apperance, the story behind the movie is one of the firecest and remakable stories in the history of forumla one. It looks like the director and production crew have gone to great lengths to recreate the seat of the pants action that was the norm for that era of racing.

The best place to watch the trailer and other see some other gems is at the offical movie website :-
