In 1964, the Rootes Group entered the new Sunbeam Tiger in the Le Mans 24 Hours. With Shelby supplied Ford V-8 power and aerodynamic bodywork by Lister, Rootes found itself at the top table of GT sports car racing. As Ford and Shelby both raced to bring their own new V-8 powered cars to this first showdown with Ferrari, could the Tiger possibly compete at this level?
This is the story of how Rootes and Shelby conspired to shatter the Tiger’s 24 hour dream and how it came back fighting to become a great Anglo-American sports car. Currently in production, further filming is due to take place in the UK, California and France, with scheduled release Winter 2022.
100 years ago, an Italian engineer changed the world of motoring forever.
That man was Vincenzo Lancia.
The car was the Lancia Lambda – a technological tour de force ahead of its time.
Our documentary, for the first time, tells this remarkable story with the full support of the Lancia family and the Lancia community on the centenary of his most extraordinary creation. Currently in production, with further filming in Italy, UK, Northern Europe and Australia, we are aiming to premiere at the Turin Film Festival in Winter 2022.
