London, UK – 8th December 2019: Following a year of stunning overtakes, nail-biting racing and a host of new talent emerging, superstars from throughout motorsport descended on London’s Grosvenor House for the 2019 Autosport Awards – dubbed ‘The Greatest Night in Motorsport’.
Director James Mangold decided to make Ford v Ferrari not because he thought it would be a huge box office success, but because he loved the story and wished to revel in his art. We motorsport-'experts'-turned-film-critics would be smart to remember that, says David Malsher.
With Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the lead roles of Ken Miles and Carroll Shelby respectively, the ‘Ford v Ferrari’ movie – a.k.a. ‘Le Mans ’66’ in Europe – opens on Friday, Nov. 15 across the U.S. David Malsher explains why it’s a must-see for motorsport aficionados and how it could turn a wider audience on to the magic of racing.
